Our latest campout was our Sunol bike trip. From a little parking lot in Niles, we had to ride about 7.5 miles to our campground at Coyote Hills. That night (Saturday night), we had our annual golden skillet dinner; where each patrol must cook for guests. The patrol with the best presentation, cooking skills and manners would receive the golden skillet award. After that we had a little campfire on a very windy night. I would like to say thanks to Mr. Howard for getting up in the middle of the night and staking down our tents so that they would not blow away. Even though I was not able to ride out with the rest of the troop (I was sick that morning); everyone else did make it back to the parking lot.
