What’s a Quest?

Hi Everybody!  So I used the excuse of the two-day Quest on Scouts for my rather “silent blog” weekend……..I got a bunch of email from you asking WHAT is a Quest and so I thought I’d tell you and show you some of the photos from our Quest – just for fun!

This actually was the FIRST Quest we’ve had in Scouts – we did a “Practice Quest” a while back and it was lots of fun – we had to search the whole site – all the pages (and there are tons) for where our Denmaster had hidden/buried on the page some animal tracks – then identify them – whoever found them and identified them correctly got points.   We also had to search the site for bird houses that were hidden so we could identify the type of bird who lived in the birdhouse…..that was fun.   Anyway, that was the first Quest and this one was THE REAL THING.  It was also super hard (I thought).

We had lots of challenges to complete and the schedule for the two days was rigorous with some free time built in (so our typists could go to the bathroom or eat some FOOD instead of being chained to the computer!!!).   We had a stargazing challenge (identifying constellations), a morse code challenge (yes we had to learn morse code) as well as a semaphore flag challenge (those little flags waving all over the place that spell out words!).   There were a couple of other challenges too and a SUPER FUN activity last night which was a SNIPE HUNT for the little Kit Scouts (Kits are one year old or younger and we DO have some Scouts that young).   It was tons of fun.

So here are a few photos of my Patrol (we have 14 in the Patrol but only 9 signed up to participate in the Quest):

Cat Scouts has grown tremendously since I joined – so big that they are moving to another server soon because when all of us are there for an event, it gets “stuck” or sometimes we get thrown off the site and can’t get back on – typical stuff for a big site with a lot of participating people.   But it is a GREAT organization and we have a whole lot of fun.   Visit at CatScouts.com and join up.  If you DO, make sure and join MY Troop (or start your own Troop!!).    I started the Worldwide Wildcats Troop and it’s now the largest Troop in Scouts.  We have four Patrols within the Troop……..each Patrol has their very own “Den” where we hang out and eat (hahaha).    If you do join, look me up first thing – I’ll help you get started having fun with us.  On the other hand if you want to “have a life” stay out of Scouts because it’s habit-forming!!!!

Happy Monday and don’t forget – tomorrow is TUESDAY TEASER at 6AM EST !!!

Hugs, Sammy 🙂

    Wow, that was quite an event, Sammy! My human said I can’t join Cat Scouts because then she would never get the cat rescue book published! MOL!

      Your human is right Sparkle……it’s tough to “untangle” yourself from what’s going on there – so many cats and friends and things to do……earning badges is fun though. Anyway, your book is ULTRA important as it’s a cause near and dear to everyone who loves cats hearts. YAY!

      Sushi you have been REALLY missed and you’ll be great on the next Quest but hopefully Denmaster will have the new server by then because it was VERY hard to keep up during the Quest!!! Anyway, everyone is excited that you will be coming back slowly when you’re ready!!

    WOW, that quite an outing your Scouts had! Our mom went on a snipe hunt when she was very young. They didn’t catch anything, but she thinks that’s OK because what would they do with it anyway.

    Hi, Sammy. It’s great that you are writing about Cat Scouts on your blog. Maybe more cats will see how much fun it is and join. I joined because of you, Mau and Wally; you guys were always talking about Cat Scouts being so much fun. Wasn’t the Quest crazy? The Wolverines were absolutely dizzy trying to decode the flags. My mom got a bad headache after that. MOL. I think poor Gracie is still trying to figure it out. I look forward to seeing you at the campfire tonight. *Salute* Andy

    P.S. My sisfurs send hugs.

    I’m glad your typists had a minute to use the bathroom LOL in worst case you had to lend them your litterboxes :o) But I think such a great adventure was worth every effort, to sleep in a tent and to sit with your friends around a campfire is the best ( have you told campfire- stories too?)

    Hey Sammy, thanks so much fur the suppurrt you gave to little Einstein during the Quest. He sure was nervous and needed a lot of encouragement. He loved the snipe hunt most of all and is still asking me if we are fooling about there not being any Snipes. I think he may be looking fur them for a few months yet MOL

    I agree with The Island Cats about that flag guy. Did not get that one. Good thing we had Charles in our den. Think he was the only one that got it. Was fun. A shame the site has issues. Have a great day Sammy.

      Denmaster is switching SOON to the new server and hopefully that will be the LAST time we have problems. My Cougar Ceremony was a pain in the neck last night – had to finally switch to Cat Scouts on Facebook to “see” things!!

  30. That doesn’t sound like fun, Sammy. That sounds like work and cats shouldn’t have to work. Just meowin’. And you have to wear human bodies. That might be the deal breaker.
