Baking, Bowlines and Bhangra! – Scouting Video Picks


YouTube is a global phenomenon; 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month, 100 hours of video are uploaded every minute, 80% of YouTube traffic comes from outside the US.

Here’s this week’s Scouting video picks I hope Scouters find interesting, informative and useful.

Danish Dampers for Gourmet Campers!

Campfire cooking idea from Scout’s UK series of Rapid Recipes. A variation on  stick bread, add a  jam or Nutella, great idea!
Covert 300 grams of self-raising flour into 2 1/4 cups of flour with 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder , 75 grams of butter to 2/3rd cup butter, and 100 grams of sultanas to 3/4 of a cup or raisins.

There are dozens (probably hundreds) of videos showing how to tie a bowline.

I really value concise yet thorough instructional videos with clear directions.  Here’s a great quick method for tying a bowline from Captain Dave anyone can learn in a few minutes.

Music video from the Bharat Scouts and Guides of India.

A glimpse into Scouting in another part of the world. Features amazingly colorful dancing among familiar games and activities. I was unable to find a translation of the lyrics, but you get the general message: Scouting is great fun! If you are a fan of Indian music (Bhangra is one of my favorite styles) you’ll enjoy this look into another culture.
