Vision Statement of our Crew:
"Through patriotism, service, and self-development, we are ambassadors for Venturing - pursuing adventure, fellowship, and the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything."
(Written at the ILSC, December 28, 2012)
Welcome to Venturing Crew 1042 (aka Crew 42) of Kitsap County in Western Washington. We're located over at the edge of the World Wide Web, just around the corner from the end of the Universe. What do we do? We backpack: whether it's in our backyard Olympic Mountain Range, the nearby Cascades, or in the southern Rockies at Philmont. We float: all around Puget Sound in kayaks, down exciting whitewater wilderness rivers in rafts, or aboard sailing craft. We've hiked, biked, climbed, snow-shoed, roller skated, ice skated, fenced, shot rifles, blackpowder muskets, revolvers, and semi-automatics. We build things around the neighborhood and give service to other Scouting entities and community organizations. We train ourselves. We train others. We have fun. Most importantly, we develop leadership.
