BOSTON TRIP

Posted on Oct 17 2021 - 9:23pm

This is long; press "read more" to get full view. Thank you to all our drivers this weekend. It was quite the trip. Our Scouts were fantastic. I hope they tell you all our adventures. Our first stop was Camp Syre in a beautiful town called Milton right outside Boston. The camp has large carts to transport gear to cabin. We had two cabins 20 in one 7 in the other. Both had heat, fridge, microwave, electricity. We had some great meals at the cabin. The main headquarters had beautiful state of the art bathrooms and showers open 24 hours. Saturday Morning we drove into Boston. Parked in the underground parking at the Commons. We started the Freedom Trail at the State Capital heading to Beacon Hill. Town Hall where Boston Massacre took place. Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market. Time was given to everyone to grab a bite to eat and shop. After eating we continued the Trail to the North End. At Faneuil Hall the Scouts were treated to some great street performers. They were not shy asking for 20.00 to 50.00 dollar donations. Then off to the North End, North Church where we had the great chance to meet up with the 6th Middlesex Regiment. Captain John Greenwood filled the Scouts with very useful information and the men let us hold their guns that weighed over 10 pounds for a group shot.We had 5:00PM reservations for a Fenway park Tour so we traveled to the Longfellow Bridge that goes over the Charles River. We had to find a Train station to take us out to Fenway. We all boarded the T and headed to Fenway. We did get there to early and spent a lot of time in Red Sox Store. We all got some well needed ice Cream. When the tour began we were told we had to walk a few blocks away and store our backpacks in lockers. They were not allowed in the ballpark. Off we went to the Liquor store only to be told he did not have room for 27 Backpacks. They were going to charge us 5.00 for each pack. We walked back to join the other 100 people for the tour. We told the people in charge they could not take our backpacks. After lengthy discussions with security they informed us we would be given a private tour so the other people would not see us breaking the rules. They did search our bags and gave us some great looking Red Sox wrist bands to put on our packs. Our tour guide who was an elderly gentleman who was instrumental in getting us approved to get a private tour. He loved our Scouts. He was wearing two World Series rings. We asked how he got them. He informed us every full time employee of the Boston Red Sox's gets one. He was a great tour guide. We had to be very quite because the team was having batting practice. They were getting ready for the Sunday night game that went 13 innings. Parker told us that the winning home run was hit into the Green Monster where we sat on the tour. Picture up ahead.
