Just wondering. Count me in.

Are you kidding? I was a shitty excuse of a cub scout. I must confess i don't know what it entails to be an Eagle Scout. Maybe you could fill us in?

I was something like three merit badges and a service project short.

That is (honestly) one of my major life regrets.

Almost, but I had to worry about not failing to many classes in high school so I stopped at Life.

But I worked at Camp Wilderness in MN and the scouts taught me plenty of things and helped get me where I am today.

I don't remember ever hearing of Firecrafter? I made OA, but I wasn't active in it.

Yep. Old school. Where Rifle and Shotgun was REAL 3 position shooting. Wilderness survival required dressling game animals.

I'm not, but my son is. I'm an honorary OA, at least that what I think they call leaders who weren't tapped out until they were adults.

I was never in scouts. My son will get life the next court of honor. He is the SPL this term. We are both in the Order of the Arrow. Went through it together. A very good memory.

Eagle Scout with 2 palms. Did a 110 mile trek at Philmont. One of the best experiences of my life. I am now a Scoutmaster trying to give some of that back. We just got back from a 58 mile, five day backpacking trip with the older Scouts.

Eagle, Bronze palm.

OA Vigil, though I don't really count it because I didn't enjoy OA and never went more than once or twice.

(BTW.....It's amazing how an offhand mention of the fact that you made Eagle Scout can help your career at times.......)

Throw me on to the list as well.

Just pinned on on the first of this month.

OA too, but I haven't had the time to go Brotherhood. Sucks when your lodge covers the entire state.

I am, no OA though - I never saw the point. I did do Philmont and it was amazing.
