    I used to say, I was an Eagle Scout. A few years ago I said to myself, "Hey, once an Eagle, always an Eagle." So yes, I am an Eagle Scout. Since September 30, 1970. It's been a good flight--and I am a diving bird as well ;-)

    My buddy is an Eagle Scout, but does not post on any forum, anywhere, for any reason. :blinking: He always makes me do it if he needs to know something.

    Father of 1 Eagle(20), other son working on last badges and project (15). I will be the scoutmaster as of next summer, have held every other position in pack and troop either officially or un-officially. As for pushing your own son..........DON"T. There are others that he will listen to more, I had to sit by while my son slowly finished his project and paperwork, less than a month before his 18th bday. I had other parents/scouts intervening on my behalf. My other son is more motivated, and wants to get his at age 16 to show his brother up, he already hiked Philmont.

    I was on the Food Group that did all the food distribution. We distributed food for about 35,000 to 40,000 campers. The facilities/logistics of the whole thing is actually pretty ineresting. We also managed the cafeterias that fed the staff. (Food prep/cooking was actually contracted out to Marriott Food Services). can't remember how many staffers we fed, but it was in the thousands each day, scattered in about 5 or 8 cafeterias around the base.

    Haven't been to a Jamboree since 1989.... (wow... that was 20 years ago next summer)


    I'd gladly do Jambo again, but it's just a LONG event to schedule for vacation from work. especially considering we had to be there a week beforehand and the even is two weeks long. I think I was gone for almost a month on that trip.

    NOAC is a little better for scheduling as it's only a few days long and working staff on them is I'd guess a week or so total time? (can't remember as I haven't been to a NOAC in a while either).

    I really want to hit Philmont again. I wished I'd put in to work there as a youth.
