The Best Campouts are the Wet Ones

This past month we went on a campout, and we were all looking forward to it. That is until we saw the weather forecast. Rain all weekend long. As scouts we are told that it wouldn’t be that bad. We were gullible enough to believe our parents and scout leaders. I was very optimistic when I arrived at the campsite. It was fairly dry, overcast, and about 65 degrees. It was really good camping weather. That night for dinner we had spaghetti and meatballs, it was a perfectly cooked and warm meal that we all needed after setting up our tents in the rain.

The next day we started our cooking competition. For breakfast all teams had to include some kind of french toast. Then there were the sabotages, one team ended up having to use donuts instead of bread for their french toast, and the other was a trade of heat source to cook their food. During this round a costly mistake was made. Cumin was accidentally mixed up with the cinnamon.

In between breakfast and lunch we played about 3 hours of capture the flag. That were really fun, exhausting, and challenging. With one team eliminated, the show down between the last two teams started. In our lunch meal we had to include a veggie, potatoes, and chicken. It was a lot of fun and we were all really tired afterwards, but the winning team consisted of Neil, Dallin, Charlie, and Sonjo. And like I said before it rained, and rained, and rained the entire campout, but we all had a fun time and there was minimal injuries.
