One of my Wood Badge ticket items was to document recipes that we’ve used for recent campouts in to a cookbook with directions and shopping lists. What I ended up developing should satisfy that requirement and will be useful as a handout for the dutch oven cooking class that I teach with another scouter every other year or so at Prairielands Training College, our local University of Scouting event.
My intention is to make this a somewhat living document. Suggestions for edits and/or additions are always welcome.

One of my Wood Badge ticket items was to build a chuck/patrol box for Pack 98 to use for storing cooking equipment, utensils, some dry goods and the reusable plates, bowls, cups and silverware that I bought for another ticket item.
In September and October 2018 I participated in Wood Badge training with the Prairielands Council. I met an excellent group of other scouters from many walks of life: Cub Scout leaders, Scouts BSA leaders, Venturing leaders, Order of the Arrow members, District level volunteers.

Do you have “Offer Remote Assistance” working on your existing Windows 7 deployment? Are you doing in place upgrades to Windows 10 on those machines?
If so, you may run into a difficult to troubleshoot error when trying to offer unsolicited remote assistance using a non-administrator group.
And, that makes 13 years.
This recipe was originally posted by another local Champaign-Urbana blog that has since gone private. It is from a well known local BBQ spot, I’ve made it a few times and others wanted the recipe, so here goes.
Did you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on your Latitude E7440? Is your wireless stuck in “Airplane Mode”? Does clicking the thing to disable airplane mode just flash at you when you click it?
If so, you need to open Device Manager and disable the “Airplane Mode Switch Collection” device under Human Interface Devices. After that, you should be able to turn airplane mode off and wifi back on. How annoying.
Update for Windows 1709 (Fall Creators Update): You need to reboot after disabling the “Airplane Mode Switch Collection” device, then wifi should start working again.
I missed it, but that’s 12 years.
Two Brocade 6505 and SC4020
Housing is still using VMware as our virtualization platform and we needed to refresh our aging storage system. Several other units on campus have been using Dell Compellent, we got an excellent price on an SC4020, so we bought one too.
