New Blog Design

 Trying out a new design for my blog, hopefully I will like it and keep the design how it is. Unfortunately I had to remove the insane scouter logo due to me not be very much into the coding thing, this is a disappointment but who knows maybe it will all work out for the better. Beyond that no major additions or changes were made. I also spent the time updating my profile in regards to my scouting background.

Just tell me what you think.

Adventure Base 100

Even though the previous stop of adventure base 100 still has a few more hours left before the process of clean and breakdown begins, I wanted to publish information for the next stop for 2 reasons. The first is a scout related reason which is the weekend that this stop will be occurring I will be going to a Scout Training for NYLT and will not have email access. The second is that since I usually do not publish posts tuesday through Thursday's since those are my busy school days, I wanted to ensure that this information go out to the right people before the event started.

The next stop of the adventure base 100 tour will be at the Cinco De Mayo Festival in Chicago, Illnois which is located at Douglas Park and the parks address is as follows:

1401 South Sacramento Drive
Chicago, IL 60623
