|William with his gear—the night before departure for camp.|
William was one of only two boys in how troop who earned a badge for packing in and out,
meaning he carried all this on his back for the whole long trek from van to their camp site.
|Waving goodbye to William, already loaded in the Boy Scout van.|
William had second thoughts just before they left, but we encouraged him to go, and he had a fine time.
|The van, loaded with boys and a trailer full of gear.|
|Before heading further into the house, William needed a round of foot and leg washing. |
Filthy does not begin to describe this boy, fresh from a week at Boy Scout camp.
