These West Virginia Scouts Know What To Do In Winter


Just watching this video makes me cold.

But the Scouts from Troop 31 in Charleston, W.Va.? They look like they’re doing just fine.

Joined by their friends from Troop 289 in Madison, W.Va., those boys recently spent a weekend at Cranberry Glades Botanical Area in West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest. The weather? 14 inches of snow, sub-zero temps at night, with winds up to 40 miles an hour.

That’s OK. These guys were prepared. Check out the video to see how they did it.
