I was a scout all through my teens. I got my Eagle and loved all the activities we did.

I've wanted to get my hands on the new manual, all the knots and useful things would be nice to go over again.

Made it to Life Scout before the smell of gas and girls got my attention.

Currently Webelos Leader for my oldest son's den. Have a new Tiger starting this year.

Made it about halfway to eagle with the merit badges and then for some reason there was some bickering and some in house spats so just about everyone left. Still had a lot of fun while it lasted.

I was a Girl Scout for a couple years. I didn't like it. We never did the fun things the guys got to do, like archery, camping, fishing, etc. We did 'girl' things like crafts, cooking, sewing, etc. I don't know if it's different now-a-days. I'm talking 47 years ago or so.

I was in Cub Scouts for a year or two. It didn't hold my interest very well; i'm not much for discipline & group dynamics, less so at that age. I got more interested in paper routes & cash flow about the time i lost interest.
