Idaho Dad: The Forgetful Eagle Scout

Sometimes I forget that, because not long after earning that rank I had some serious issues with the Boy Scouts organization. So, I stepped away from Scouting, boxed up my uniform and awards, and moved on with my life. Last year, when my son heard about a homeschool Boy Scout troop in the area, we joined up. He had a good time with the boys. They met in a wooded park during the day, where the emphasis was on outdoor fun. A few months later, that troop disbanded when the leadership moved away. Not giving up, we looked for another one to join, paying visits to three other troops/Idaho Dad, A Family Runs Through It. More here.

HBO numbers (for Monday, May 2): 8644/5416

Question: Were you ever a Boy Scout or a Girl Scout? Was it a good experience?
