   Every January, about a dozen mountain men and around four thousand......four thousand!.....Boy Scouts meet at Harvey County Park West near Benton, Kansas where they have their Annual Trappers Rendezvous.  We put on a black powder shoot and a tomahawk throwing event for them, and set up primitive camps for them to observe.  Some of us are "Mystery Mountain Men" and are given tokens and a famous trapper of the past to portray, and the Scouts try to find all the Mystery Mountain Men and collect the complete set of tokens. I like to also carry a beaver pelt, trap and beaver hat with me and give impromptu presentations about the fur trappers.  Someone pointed a video camera at me and posted it on YouTube.
