Pioneering, Step 1

So, for the last several months those poles that the troop cut down have been drying in the Ghost Shed. I started playing with them at the request of Mr. H for a Gateway at the upcoming Camporee... and they are still heavy!

After some wrangling I built up a reasonable gateway prototype with two tripods and a cross pole in the middle. At the scout meeting last week, it was a hit!

Next mission: see if I can get the boys excited about building towers and bridges and stuff. If not, we'll put the hobby away for a while, if so, there will be towers and bridges and ziplines in our future :-)
