    The Badass Girl Scouts Who Helped Win World War II

    The Girl Scouts, or Girl Guides, have been around for just over 100 years. You probably think of them as smiley campers, selling cookies and earning badges, but I’m going to tell you a different story. Today, let’s talk about their always bright, do good deeds motto, and what happened when the world went into chaos. Let’s talk about the Girl Guides in the Second World War. Hi, I’m Tristan Johnson and you’re watching Step Back History. Since 1910, the Girl Guides have given young girls a way to make the world a better place through community action, service to others, education, and advocacy. They began as a protest when…

    Introduction to Campsite Set up

    [ Music ]>>[Background Music] A campsite is your temporary home in the middle of nature and a place where awesome adventures happen. Here’s how to make your campsite cozy, comfortable, and safe.

First, keep it girl-lead. Setting up a campsite gives girls a great opportunity to make decisions and work as a team. Of course when you selected a campsite, you found out some…

    Kodiak Canvas Cabin Tent vs Flex Bow Tent

    I’m going to tell you about the cabin tent vs. the flex bow tent in this wonderfully amateurish video. You’re going to be super impressed. I’m going to tell you what some of the benefits are, because the cabin tent has some benefits over the flex bow, and the flex bow has some benefits over the cabin tent. All right, let’s get started, so one of the differences, this cabin tent has a 7.5′ peak. The flex bow has a 6.5′ peak. The other difference is in set up. The cabin tent, even though on our website and any instruction manual it says it requires 2 people, it doesn’t, I’ve…

    Camping in comfort – Part 1

    Good morning, good morning folks. I’d like you to join me for Corroon’s comfort camping. Show you how to do it properly, to be warm dry and secure The demonstration, the demonstration is going to be mainly, this morning, with the fly sheet. The tent’s the one on the inside, the fly sheet is the one on the outside and that’s what we’re looking at this morning. So, first of all, keep your back to the wind, em, so the tent, if there is a breeze, blows out in front of you. So I’m going to, first of all, try and find the back. Right, now we want to hold…

    Girl Scouts Love State Parks

    What I love about what we’re doing today at Girl Scouts Love State Parks is getting girls to go to the state parks in every state park across the nation. Today, we’ve had amazing outdoor experience, we’ve seen a buck, we’ve seen turtles and also learning about the flora and the fauna in this area. That’s what Girl Scouts Love State Parks is all about, is getting girls to go and enjoy and really experience the wonder of being outdoors. I like being in nature, I like exploring and seeing the surroundings. I think some places are very beautiful. I feel happy that I’m out here, you do a bunch…

    Epic Deep Freeze Solo Tarp Camping Got Dangerous!

    I got home. I got in a nice warm shower. Spoiler alert, I lived. However, I had just posted a video about a week ago demonstrating for 2 hours in zero degrees, how you can cover yourself with your sleeping bag if you’re really cold, and breathe into your sleeping bag. I got a whole bunch of comments on an earlier video, (I’ll post a link to these), but this is important; that I explain this because I think I might have given some incomplete advice, perhaps some bad advice, so I went out when I knew it was going to be cold and I camped with the minimal amount…
