Boy Scouts - Nantucket or Bust

Boy Scouts Rowing to Nantucket

One of my favorite memories as a child was winning a Swiss army knife for selling the most popcorn in my den as a Cub Scout. I still remember the Cub Scout promise as if it was a security blanket from my toddler days. I can't wait to introduce Alex to the world of Scouting and hopefully I'll be a den leader in his pack.  I think my parents still have some pictures of me in my uniform and I will gladly upload them whenever I dig them out from their basement.

If I knew that the Boy Scouts were doing stuff like this, I would have stayed with it.


  1. we did some pretty cool stuff, but this tops all of it!

  2. @Brandon Sargent
    I know. They probably wouldn't even let you do this nowadays.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I made it through Cub Scouts to, and I agree if anyone had given me any inclination that the Boy Scouts would have been like that I might have stuck it out. All I remeber though is camping durring the frezzing cold at Camp Rodney.

  4. That is such a great picture, I love it. All 3 brothers were Scouts; your darling Alex will be a great Scout.

    May you have a great week!

  5. My son just won some sort of pocket knife from popcorn sales. So nice to know he'll cherish the memories. xoxo
