    I have to say this is one of my favorite issues of boys life so far. The article about superiour canoeing is very informational and makes me want to talk to my troop about doing a trip on lake erie, the closest lake to us. Also i like the scouting around article, those articles are very helpful when working on merit badges! Thank you Boys Life!!
