Trailblazing Badge

1. Start planning your adventure.

Ask an older Girl Scout or Girl Scout volunteer for tips.
1/19/13 -We hiked today with the Hiking and Backpacking group and discussed different kinds of gear as well as good hiking and backpacking spots.

2. Get your body and your teamwork skills ready.

Build teamwork and endurance.
1/19/13 - We hiked today with the Hiking and Backpacking group! It was awesome! The hiking spot was a county park where I've hiked many times before.
2/16/13 - We hiked today with the Hiking and Backpacking group at a state forest. This was a new hiking spot for me, and it was awesome! We climbed a lot of rocks and saw the falls after lunch.
3/17/13 - We hiked to a local park today with my family. We observed signs of spring, ducks on the pond, and the little waterfall.

3. Create your menu.

Get into quick-energy snacks.
We did this for our hikes and I know what I need to pack for snacks and lunch.

Take the trash challenge.
We pack lightly and have minimal trash to take home.

4. Gain some trailblazing know-how.

Learn how to purify water.
1/19/13 - We learned how to purify water from a hand pump purifier using water from the reservoir.

5. Head out on the trail.

See the stars.
We went winter camping and did a night hike where we stopped several times to see the stars and identify constellations. It was a cold, clear night!

Cookie Sales!

This year, I sold 21 cases of Girl Scout cookies to raise money for the trip to Europe!

The customers liked Thin Mints, Samoas, and Tagalongs the best, followed by Do-Si-Dos.

Thank you to all of my customers for your support!
