I got home yesterday from Air Force JROTC Summer Leadership School. Then I overhead my parents they where going on a 8 mile training hike this morning to Mazanita Peak in the San Bernardino National Forest.
I’ve never done that hike. So instead of getting some rest today to get ready for my two weeks with Devil Pups. I went on the hike with my parents and my Boy Scout Assitant Scoutmaster Mr. Kerhylein aka “daddddy.”
I figured I needed to get a least one hike in this summer before our big hike to Yosemite Half Dome in 3 weeks.
I get at least 10 days rest this summer before school starts.
I just got back from one of the most amazing experiences of my life attending The Naval Academy Summer Seminar Program at Annapolis, Maryland.
I got to experience what it would be like to come to The Naval Academy as a Midshipman. I now know I want to come to this school. It’s beautiful. This is what I want to do.
I wanted to share a few pictures with you because I need to get ready to leave for Sacramento later today to attend the 76th session of the American Legion Boys State Program.
Lastly, thank you all who help me raise the money and supported me to get to Annapolis.
This one of my seminars I attended. Damage Control.

Camp Emerson is now the first summer-camp I have been to. Camp Emerson is located in idyllwild place is cover with trees and mosquitoes.
When we got to camp we put all our equipment inside the tent and had some fun playing cards. The day after we got there we pack up our papers and writing supplies and started to head to our classes. To me it felt like I was back at school going from class to class learning about many things.
I am on my way of getting many merit badges this week and next week .
This week I am planning to get my fishing merit badge and my rifle shooting merit badge from the Big Bass Pro Shop.
Next week I am going to go to summer camp. Summer camp is in Camp Emerson where you go to earn merit badges. I will be gone for seven days learning about the following merit badges.
Here is a list of the merit badges I am planning to earn while at summer camp:
- Citizenship in the community
- Wilderness survival
While at summer camp I am planning to take many pictures to show what summer camp looks like.
Get back to you after summer camp with lots of pictures.
