    Spent years in the scouts and enjoyed every minute of it, wished I would have gotten into it at an earlier age. I think I only earned 2 or 3 badges though...I got into it for the Camping, Canoing, Fishing, Hiking and all of the other out door activities and woods skills I was able to learn and practice more than the badge earning part of it. Thats pretty pathetic to say I know but Im just being honest about it.

    I learned a whole lot from it though. Its had a major impact on my life and I use a lot of the things I learned during those years. I think its an association that all young men could benefit from considerably these days.

    I was a cub scout for a while but those little bitches didn't like me whittling with my pocket knife during outtings and complained about the knife. This was in a suburban area though with a wide span of people who make up some of the fat of the spineless part of our population today. I didn't miss them leaving the scouts and concentrated my youth with friends of caliber learning the woods, pilfering dirty magazines and cigarettes from unaware parents and playing soldier, honing what are now fighting skills. It was lots of fun.

    I was a brownie, then girl scout, then a medical explorer scout. After marriage and 5 boys I was cub master for 6 years. Now grandmother and still teaching my grandchildren things we learned.

    14th Level Elf Paladin! (its a dungeons and dragons thing)

    So if the BSA goes ahead with allowing openly gay leaders/members into the organization, should the name be changed? What should it be called?

    "The Gay Scouts of America"? no....

    "Fudgepackers" nope! word pictures sorry...

    "The Rainbow Coalition" no sorry, already taken. Dang!

    I know..."N.A.M.B.L.A. Explorers" whew! Problem solved, disaster averted.


    punch, always glad to help out...

    Was in the Cub Scouts for a short while and then later in the Boy Scouts, but as crazy as it sounds, I was a big kid, and got pressed into going to work in the construction trade as a semi skilled laborer at age twelve by my father on all weekends, holidays and summers until I graduated from high school.

    Boy Scouts for just a couple of years. We moved a good bit (Air Force Brat) and I lost interest when our sponsor threatened to boot us over a couple of black kids we took into the troop (1972-ish).
