This chapter presents the ninth-day experience of Jay Mechling while camping with Boy Scout Troop 49. On the ninth day, after breakfast, the Green Bars assembled just outside the staff area. This tour serves the important purpose of socializing the Green Bar leaders, introducing them to the traditional names the troop has for sites in the general area. Then the troop drove past Bridge Camp, the bridge over Silver Creek, the King's Highway portion of the jeep trail, the Bleachers, the Lily Pond, and the Sandy Pits. The troop passed Chicken Creek — so named because it crosses the trail and, when the water runs a bit high, it looks impassable and the less adventurous park above the creek and walk into Old Usonia.

Keywords:   Boy Scout Troop 49, staff area, Old Usonia, Silver Creek, Bridge Camp
