Spinning a Yarn: "Telling a story"

We at Troop 507 like to sit around the campfire and make up stories - usually one word at a time, this one's a little different, but you get the idea.

Once upon a time, there was a young, strong and devilishly handsome Indian Chief, his name was Chief Thundercloud, who lived in the area of this camp. It was said he had power over the elements of nature. He had to power to make it rain.

Chief Thundercloud would make it rain whenever he felt his young braves needed a little "toughening up". So he'd send them out to sleep in their Patrols and would regularly open the heavens upon them. Some said that Chief Thundercloud was the meanest Chief ever, he felt that his methods produced the best and toughest braves of all!

Chief Thundercloud would test the toughness of his braves by sending a scouting party from the location of this cache to the other side of what is now Camp Ohdakota. He would give them one burning ember to light their way. They would have to stop periodically and ignite their torches because.....it would be raining and they'd go out.

One dark and dreery March evening, Chief Thundercloud sent out his 2 best braves. It was shortly after they left that a terrible scream was heard from them. The warriers hurried to their aid, but it was too late. They were gone. Only their burning ember was left.

The location of this tragedy was approximately 1000' to the west of this spot. It's said that they were taken by a rival tribe who attacked them, dressed as owls. To this day, you may see 2 owls fying in the sky over your head.

Enjoy!

I have the permission of Seth Elder from the SEWisc Council office and Ranger Norm Yaegle to place caches at Camp Ohdakota.
