Answers to the CABIN QUIZ:

Explain these canoeing terms:
Thwarts:  The wood, fiberglass or aluminum struts that brace the sides of the canoe & provide support, stability and shape.  For portaging your canoe, center thwart may be shaped for comfortable carrying.
Freeboard:  Distance between a canoe’s gunwales and the water line.  A higher freeboard keeps you drier in wind and waves, but makes you more vulnerable to side winds.
Gunwales:  Side rails running along the top edges of the canoe that reinforce it and provide a convenient place to grab hold; often take a lot of abuse.
Capsize:  Bottom is on top – what happens when you lean too far!
Belly:  The bottom of the canoe.
J Stroke:   Begins like a standard stroke but at the end paddle pushes away from the boat (resembles a “J”).  Used for minor corrections to keep the canoe in a straight path.
Rocker:  Profile when looking at the canoe/kayak (from the side) from bow to stern. Generally, the more rocker, the more maneuverable it will be.  Rocker slows speed and decreases accommodation of large payloads.
Roll:  Technique to right an overturned kayak or canoe without getting out of it.

Explain these sailing terms:
Ease:  To let out the sails.
Leeward:  Direction in which the wind is currently blowing.
Trim:  To pull the sails in.
Boom:  Horizontal pole that extends from the bottom of the mast.  Adjusting the boom towards the direction of the wind is how the sailboat is able to use wind power to move.
Luffing:  The flapping of the whole sail.
Tacking:  Basic sailing maneuver refers to turning the bow of the boat through (or into) the wind so that the wind changes from one side of the boat to the other side. The boom of the boat will always shift from one side to the other when performing a tack or a jibe.
Starboard:  Right side of the boat when you are facing the bow (front of the boat).
Jibing:  Opposite of tacking. Turning the stern of the boat through the wind (or the bow away from the wind) so that the wind changes from one side of the boat to the other side.

Name 6 things to avoid attracting bears to a cabin.

  • Keep garbage & recycling in secure place & take it to the landfill regularly. Never leave outside overnight.
  • If you compost, do it in a sealed & controlled manner; safe distance from the cabin or other buildings.
  • Rake up acorns that have fallen – bears love to eat acorns & will climb into trees to get them.
  • Keep BBQ clean at all times. Food scraps easily attract bears.
  • Bears love birdseed – Use a birdbath to attract birds rather than feeding them. When you hang a bird feeder, make sure it is beyond a black bear’s reach.
  • Hummingbird feeders. Consider planting red or pink flowers known to appeal to hummingbirds.

• What makes the hum sound?  Bird’s rapid wings beat, average of 53 beats per second – can reach 200 wing beats per second
• Average weight?  Weighs about 3- 4grams (in comparison to a nickel which weighs 4.5 grams).  Interestingly, they may double mass prior to migration!
• Maximum flight speed?  About 30 miles per hour, though can reach up to 60 miles per hour in a dive
• Amount of nectar consumed daily?  About its weight each day (some sources say more that their weight in food each day); the average hummingbird feeds 5-8 times per hour
• Average heart rate?  More than 1,200 beats per minute. At rest, average 250 breaths per minute
• Average lifespan in the wild?  5-9 years
• How many feathers do they have?  Typical RTHU has 940 feathers, all of which are replaced each year; least number of feathers of any bird

• How can loons dive so deep?  Loons have solid bones (most birds are hollow & light).
• How deep can they dive?  The extra weight helps them dive as deep as 250 feet to search for food
• How long can they stay under?  Up to 5 minutes
• How fast can they fly?  More than 75 miles per hour

• When & where was the first recipe published?  Girl Scouts handbook Tramping and Trailing With the Girl Scouts in 1927

• What fish is also known as a snot rocket?  A northern pike (slimy and snake like)
• Why do night crawlers come to the surface when there are heavy rains?  Earthworms breathe through their skin, so when heavy rains flood their burrows they must come to the surface to avoid drowning.
