Scouting Historian, Author, Blogger, Speaker, Scouting Veteran, and Camp Director
For the past many months, I have enjoyed blogging and sharing with you of my Scouting experiences. Thanks for putting up with me – and thanks to those of you who have been faithful readers.
My wife, Lou, and I have made it a lifestyle habit of working at Scout camps each summer. This is made possible because we both work for the schools in Mesa, Arizona. We both love Scouts and Scouting and serving as we can. And of course our Arizona heat is another motivating factor.
This summer experience will be a bit interesting since I worked at this same Thunder Ridge camp a full 40 years ago when I was the camp’s Program Director. So, I may be in for a bit of nostalgia and a few memories.
The Utah National Parks Council – where we will serve this summer – has just posted a blog that talks of my experiences at Thunder Ridge 40 years ago. If you’d to check out that blog and my full 10-page journal blog of that summer, I’d invite you to check it out: Camp Thunder Ridge 40 Years ago as seen by then Program Director, Kevin Hunt.
So, we will continue our tradition again this summer. And as noted, we will be serving for the next two months at Camp Thunder Ridge in southern Utah. We look forward to this new adventure – even knowing that this year for the first time since we were married – we’ll be in a tent instead of a director’s cabin. So, that will be a real adventure. (I am grateful for a wife who puts up with such things from or with me.)
And with our camp plans, and believing that WIFI and the internet will be like every other Scout camp that we have worked in, my opportunities for internet and blogging will likely be quite limited. So, I may be signing off for a while. But, if opportunities and WIFI somehow give me opportunity, you may suddenly hear from me again sometime through the summer. But, since that possibility is unpredictable at this moment, I will just say that I very much enjoy this writing for the Trapper Trails Council and will take it up once again when I can.
But, until then,
Best wishes along your Scouting Trails … Kevinthescoutblogger
