My (zero) hero

Last weekend, Andrew went with his Boy Scout troop (or at least some of them) on a winter survival camp out. Yes, that’s right. It’s winter. And after building shelters, they slept outside.

Not only that, but it dipped below zero. This is not cause for alarm, but celebration, because now he has his Zero Hero badge.

That’s right. Here in Minnesota, we reward people for sleeping outside in sub-zero temperatures. Not only that, we call it fun.

This, however, is the aftermath:


After the camp out.

It should be noted that the cat did not actually exert herself. She took a nap anyway.
