Careful with that, Mike....We once took our Troop to Camp Sawyer down in
the Florida Keys. I had a group of younger Scouts in my car as we left
Miami. (Anybody who knows this area can figure out what's coming.)
I told the guys to get the map and let me know how to get to Sawyer
(marked with the ubiquitous red X) because I had never been there and
had no idea how to go. ;-)
We were southbound out of Homestead on US 1 at that moment.
Camp Sawyer is right on US 1 a hundred miles away.
There are NO other roads to the Florida keys.
The boys worked on that map and argued and sweated for twenty minutes
before the first one of them realized that all we had to do was never
turn the wheel.
A Scout is wierd.
