November 2021 - Camping at the Herling's Freeland Farm

Our November camping trip was to the Herlings' Farm and Freeland, Maryland. They are a Scouting family in our Troop and generously offered the use of their farm for our 12-14 November 2021 camping trip. It is nearby making it convenient for parents to drop off and pick up their sons for the trip. It is a beautiful property with plenty of fields for activities which included horseback rides in a corral, archery, obstacle course, rifle range, auto mechanics with a truck raised on a lift, and fishing.

Friday night was clear and colder than expected with a low temperature of 33°F. Perfect weather for setting up camp. Saturday morning was a complete surprise when we woke up to thick fog surrounding the area. It cleared and we had a beautiful morning. We had some brief showers around noon and then the wind came roaring through around 3:30 uprooting patrol canopies and blowing them across the fields. It also blew some personal tents around and broke some tent and canopy poles. The wind subsided during the night and the temperature dropped to a low of 24°F earning 8 Texas Tough points for anyone who camped out both Friday and Saturday nights
