This is probably the most well known of the Scout Laws and is what Scouts have been known for since the organization was created by General Robert Baden-Powell in 1907 and brought to this country in 1910 by William Boyce.
And there can be no doubt why Lord Baden-Powell put this law first on the list. All else fails without this concept as part of ones moral code of ethics. Although it may take years for one to gain the reputation of being trustworthy, it can take just one careless act to destroy it. Do you know someone who is truly trustworthy?
This project was organized by Scout Erik Zawacki of Troop 8, Brookfield. Over a hundred scouts from different troops and townspeople gathered at different locations along the Still River to remove everything from paper trash to washing machines and old cars from the river. This particular location is where a car was pulled from the river up the bank to the RR tracks by hand, block and tackle, ropes and lots of scouts. About 20 feet north of the cache you can still see the imprint of where the car was dragged up the hill. There is no doubt that this project was the largest and most beneficial to the environment and people that use this river and therefore deserves the position at the top of the list along with Trustworthy.
Erik is now a deep sea diver on the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico
Do not try to access this cache from Poppy Drive as you would have to cross private property and cross the tracks. The parking coordinates are a small pull-off on a private drive leading from the Brookfield Market with permission of the owner. Geocachers alone may disregard the "No Trespassing" sign there. However, DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER DOWN THE DRIVE FOR ANY REASON. From here follow the overgrown gravel right-of-way along side the tracks toward the cache. PLEASE DO NOT WALK ON THE TRACKS !! Although this line is semi-abandoned, and occasional slow moving freight does use it once or twice a month. When your GPS points directly off to your left, descend the hill to the cache.GPS accuracy is somewhat limited due to the deep cavern you are in.
