While playing football, the front just gave out and it looked like flapping lips. Mike gave me some duct tape, and that held it together for the weekend. And actually kept my feet really warm.
The MVP of the weekend was the space blanket. Also known as the “emergency blanket” the space blanket before this weekend was an over glorified, piece of aluminum foil that everyone kept in their packs, never to be used. My space blanket probably is older than most of this kids in the troop. While preparing our pre-Thanksgiving feast we needed something to wrap around the fire place to keep the heat in to properly cook the turkey and not poison all of the kids, For six grueling hours Pete’s emergency blanket withstood indirect heat, and we all enjoyed a plump juicy turkey, Sadly when used as a liner for inside the fire place, it went up in flames very quickly. The space blanket a Real American Hero.
