Boy Scout Troop 32 Marion, Massachusetts, hiked at #Yawgoog April 11 - 13, 2014, according to a story posted to Sippican Week on April 17, 2014. Shown is the group at the Southwest Marker on the Red Trail.

There appear to be at least two printings of the original Story of the Yawgoog Trails. Shown is what seems to be the first printing in the late 1970s. The pamphlet features content written by J. Harold Williams and Philip E. Tracy; it is dated 1976. The first printing is entirely of blue paper with a fold-out copy of the Phil Booth map of 1975. The pamphlets are folded and stapled, measuring 3.7 inches (9.5 cm) wide by 8.5 inches (21.7 cm) tall. #Yawgoog

Location scouting in southern New England? Consider Camp Yawgoog! Even if a camp is not in the script or storyboard, Yawgoog (pronounced "yah-goo") offers many beautiful outdoor locations in a quiet and secluded setting. Founded in 1916, #Yawgoog is a residential camp in rural Rhode Island on the Connecticut border, less than 15 minutes away from Interstate 95. Shown is the Bucklin Memorial Building, the administrative center of camp.

"A hike becomes more than a walk in the woods on a trail with colored markers. It is a place to experience the wonders of Creation, and to feel the presence of the Creator of All Things. A night under the stars opens the heart to the awe and majesty of the universe, and the One Whose Word brought it into being." We Are All Campers. An article by #Yawgoog Rabbi Sol Goodman posted to The Jewish Voice on February 27, 2014.

This 1939 photo of the mess tent in Campsite Kit Carson shows what dining in Camp Sandy Beach at #Yawgoog was like before the dining hall was built. In the first volume of The Yawgoog Story (p. 32), J. Harold Williams writes: "First, we tried getting Troops to do their own cooking, but then we switched to feeding these pioneer camps from heater-stacks [insulated canisters or boxes] loaded in Medicine Bow kitchen." The image is believed to be from Boy Scout Troop 8 Cranston, Rhode Island (RI).

In 2013 Mike Hogan tweeted this image of a 1948 medicine pouch of the Wincheck Indians, an honor society that existed before the Order of the Arrow. When the OA formed, the Wincheck Indians became Wincheck Lodge and then Abnaki Lodge. Mike says the pouch contains "some feathers, some ash, a bit of a stick, some pebbles." Perhaps these symbolize a burned arrow, with the pebbles representing the arrowhead. If so, this could be a reference to how Camp Medicine Bow got its name.
