Can't watch the vid at work!

I and my two brothers all made Eagle. I also got the bronze palm (extra badges). My older brother and I were both senior members of Order of the Arrow.

After my younger brother got his award, my mom got a small package in the mail. It was a Presidential Citation, signed by Jimmy Carter. It had a letter attached, which in so many words said, "you must be doing something right to have 3 Eagles". It's stuffed in a closet somewhere.

I did my Scout Master Conference 3 hours before I turned 18 to make Eagle. It is the one thing that you will do as a teen that will be on your resume for the rest of your life and actually mean something.

I was in the BS but never made eagle. I wished there was more survivorman type **** and less help old people cross the road type ****. I always loved the camp outs in the woods and going to the jamboree at AP Hill, etc..

neo, you joined the wrong troop. we did backpacking **** all the time.

I dropped it at life also because i saw no benefit from eagle.

I did enjoy the frequent pyrotechnics testing we did on trips though....

did you know:

putting a disposable lighter in a camp fire will make a nice little explosion?

putting a binaca (1990 vintage aerosol breath spray in thumb-sized container) in a camp fire will blow out the fire?

real boy scouts dont rub two sticks together to start fires, they use white gas in a paper cup.

a hot enough fire will burn away all traces of beer cans.

We did plenty of that **** too y8s. I'm just saying that the merit badges were lame. And having to do lame **** to get them was lame. I wish I was in a troop with MacGuyver as the leader.

I made Eagle, so did a bunch of my friends. It got more fun as I got older, the last couple years were awesome. There were a half dozen or so of us that would sort of do our own thing at that point, and we went camping, rappelling, caving, skiing, backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, white water rafting, climbing, shooting, hiking, fishing, etc. all the time. It was awesome. Wish I could do that stuff again, but I don't really have the time and the group of us, while we still chat and get together sometimes, have largely gone our different directions in life.

As an amusing factoid, one of my real good friends, who I hang out with all the time now, partied with (and, for two years, lived with) in college, we've actually known each other since CUB SCOUTS together. I mean, we were in the same high school and whatnot, but yeah, we go back all the way to first grade or whatever.

We did, too. The rule was, one "major activity" each month, whish usually meant an overnight camping/canoeing/hiking trip. I still use some of the skills I learned way back then; all my friends know if you want something tied down, I am the one to do the knots.

I was hired for one job back when I was contracting, simply because I had listed Eagle scout on my resume, and the boss was a scoutmaster. It also kept my *** out of jail once, because the judge thought my parents (having kept me in scouts) were a worse punishment. He was right.

my troop was great, we did unbelievable things but towards the end, it seemed there were many younger kids that were "problems." forced to join to get out of their parents hair. they brought too many problems and drugs and i left.

Much as it might surprise some I made it to Eagle. My parents used to be pretty heavily involved in scouting but now its mostly my mother. She is getting pretty close to retirement and I'm hoping will take on scouting full time, currently working as a district trainer.

Having that on your resume isn't going to guarantee anything, but I've received a lot of positive comments and results with it there.

My most memorable experience was going to summer camp at Ben Delatour outside Fort Collins, Colorado. Despite the fact it rained almost every day I still had an absolute blast. Really miss scouts, but it wouldn't be the same as an adult. Our troop became the masters of full contact capture the flag and completely dominated any other troop we ever played. Was good stuff.

Quoted for massive amounts of truth.



Thats one hell of an eagle project, though.

I made Eagle. Did the conference the day before I turned 18 and glad I did. We usually went camping once a month and always did different stuff. In the summer we'd usually go twice a month. Every 2 years we took an out of state trip. 1st year was to Colorado and then the next was to Philmont.
Our Scoutmaster was also the local game Warden so he had access to a lot of places to camp and what not.
