Is the Tri-climby thing you mentioned the obstacle with several platforms, and the higher you go the platforms get a little bit smaller and you have to climb to the top? I remember seeing that when I went to Camp Darby and I figure it must be pretty frightening to go up it. I would constantly think I would fall and break my neck on the way down.

I went there a couple times, first for a Boy Scout event and after that to go watch the BRC. While I was there as a Boy Scout the Ranger Instructors gave us classes throughout the day. The one I remember most was the survival class. Towards the end one of the RIs brought out a Rabit and a really big stick and told us how to go about killing it. if I remember correctly we also learned about some edible plants, specifically some type of cactus. As any 11 year olds with free time, we had to try it out. We ended up with hands full of cactus needles and spent the rest of the night trying to get them out and avoiding the rest of the adults. My dad was there while we were doing this, and being an SF Soldier/Ranger School grad, he just laughed at us and went back to cooking his own dinner.

I had a Marine RI in Mountains (not Oakes). He was one of the most professional and coolest of the cadre, his son was in my class and from leg shaving 1/75.
