I love Scouting. Since I've become a Scoutmaster, I've used this site as a resource for planning, guiding scouts, and general reference. I'm now trying to make a contribution with what I know (or can research).

Scouting Background

Youth

I began my Scouting adventure when I turned 8, and became a wolf (we didn't have Tiger Cubs yet). Always eager to go further than anyone I knew, I made it my goal (and achieved it) to earn 10 arrow points for both Wolf and Bear and complete the Arrow of Light Award.

I then became a Boy Scout in Troop 93 where I spent much of my time earning merit badges, and rising to the Life Rank.

At age 14, I became a Varsity Scout and earned my Eagle Scout at age 14. It took me another three years to finish my goal of three palms, due to my activity in other programs.

I became an active arrowman, and sealed my bond of brotherhood, in Apatukwe Lodge #107. When my council merged, I became a charter member of Te'Kening Lodge #37. In that lodge, I served as both a chapter chief and lodge vice chief. I also served as Section NE-2A Training Chair for two years.

I joined Sea Scouts as soon as I turned 14, and stayed in Ship 3 the whole time. I attended SEAL Training (NE-1) my first summer in the program, where I truly had a life-changing experience. I earned the Quartermaster Award, and attended national events such as flying aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln and Top Gun (a tour of Washington DC and surrounding areas).

At 17, my scouting career as a youth effectively ended when I went to college 1900 miles away from home, but always felt a connection with the program.

Adult

My adult experience in scouting started shortly after I turned 21. I have been a Council International Representative, Scoutmaster, and am now serving on a troop committee, team committee, and crew committee. I recently participated in Wood Badge N5-334-11-1 in the Fox Patrol.
