Re: [ScoutRadio] Padre Island Field Day Challenge
- James,Scott here, kd5mhm. Also a Scout Leader out here in West Texas who has taken Scouts down and camped on the beach and also had them overnight on the Lexington.I read this and decided two quick things:You are really warped!I like it! (so I guess I’m as warped as you are!)I would be very interested in pursuing this with you, and perhaps putting a West Texas team together for the challenge. I think this is a brilliant idea that should be aggressively looked into for next FD.I was reviewing some pictures from the Colorado wildfire and I think that this challenge could help everyone be more prepared in general.Let me know how you’d like to proceed and how I can help.ScottScott D.

I continued to consider this idea of a technology trek, and decided to share it with this group to get some comments. Since the idea for the trek involves the ARRL Field Day, I thought it best to wait until after this year's Field Day to present the idea. For lack of a better name, I call it the Padre Island Field Day Challenge.
Here is the basic idea of the challenge: A group of Scouts operate Field Day under the conditions they would find on Padre Island.
I would like comments from the group about this as an adventure trek or other possible activities that can incorporate S.T.E.M.
