I was debating whether or not to add this to the ancedote list, but
after some thought I decided to add it and leave the perpetrator
Two years ago, Troop 16 went to our annual ski trip at a friend's
hunting camp in the Adirondack Mountains. Across the road from the
camp building was a small lake and a stream which fed the lake.
After we arrived, our new SM gave a strong lecture to the scouts
about staying off the ice because it had been a relatively warm
winter and because the water was flowing from the stream.
The next morning, the SM went for a walk to lay out an orienteering
course. When he returned, he was soaked from the waist down and
extremely cold. While laying out the course, he had carelessly
walked over the stream and discovered that the ice was not solid, as
he had warned everybody.
Fortunately, the water wasn't too deep since he was by himself, and
he has never been allowed to forget it.
