In January 2012 I joined the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), a "boy led" organization that promotes respect, honor, life skills, and personal development.
In reality? My troop is a one-hundred-ish group of 5th to 12th graders that are just figuring the world out together. This is why Boy Scouts was always such an amazing experience to me. Throughout it I have made some of the strongest friends I have ever had and we have shared experiences that we will look back on for decades to come, even after our paths of divided. Though we often fall short of the high ideals of the organization, together we have begun to "bushwhack our way through the jungle of life" as I like to put it. Together we have discovered things about ourselves, learned useful and entertaining skills, and most importantly picked up some entertaining stories along the way.
Now in late-2016, as I have accomplished Eagle Scout and am preparing to depart from my beloved troop, I am writing down the numerous stories both for you, who have generously taken the time to read this, and for me. Hopefully these stories are even half as entertaining for you to read about as they were for me and my friends to create. Happy reading. :D
