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.

Oh my!! I know how to tie the Bowline, including one-handed, but that method by Captain Dave is awesome! I can’t believe how simple that is. It is so amazing that I had to grab some rope and immediately try it. Thanks Clarke for introducing me to this new way.
