Patriot’s Day 2018

We camped out in Acton, MA with a bunch of other troops for a Patriot’s Day jamboree. The weather was cold and wet. It was the coldest April 16 on record, breaking the previous 1880 record. It was colder than our Winter camping trip and our Klondike Derby earlier this year. The scouts still managed to make a delicious dinnerĀ  of chicken alfredo and have fun playing catch. The troop from Concord helped us setup camp and invited us over to their campfire.

The sleet and wind were strong overnight and we woke up to a coating of ice all over. Everyones tent held up.

The plan for Monday morning was to walk the Issac Davis trail from Acton to the North Bridge in Concord and watch the reenactment. But the reeactment was cancelled and with heavy rain coming soon, we decided to pack up camp early and head home.
