I’ve Never Seen a Dog So Happy.

I’ve Never Seen a Dog So Happy.

It’s not a secret that I am very involved with my scout Troop 0828. We have a lot of fun, and our adventures have even been featured blogs here on my site. However, every new hike or campout brings alive a new story that teaches me something I never expected.

Thoughts before a 20-mile hike.

Thoughts before a 20-mile hike.

As many of you may know, I have been involved with scouting since 2002. That's when my oldest Son, Alyn became a Tiger Cub in Cub Scouts. From there he worked his way to becoming an Eagle Scout. I am very proud of his achievements. My youngest son, Ken has followed in his footsteps and should complete his Eagle Scout this year. I am determined to help him anyway I can to meet his goals.

So, to spend time with my boys, in a productive manner that's challenging and fun, I have immersed myself into the scout lifestyle, becoming the Scout Master for Troop 828. It is a joy. Seriously, if you have boys, you should join scouting and stick with it! (That's a sermon for another day).

Reflections: Boy Scout Camp. 2015

Reflections: Boy Scout Camp. 2015

One of the greatest things I have ever been involved with is Scouting. Many years ago, when my boys were young, we were introduced to Cub Scouts. My oldest son, Alyn, joined the Tiger Cubs all the way back in the first grade and right before he turned 18, earned his Eagle Scout award. His younger brother, Ken, has followed in his footsteps and is working hard to also earn his Eagle.

I became ScoutMaster for Troop 828 here in the London area five years ago after leaving Cub Scouts with my boys as they grew older. Scouting is simply an awesome venue to teach boys how to be good men. I learned that lesson early with my own boys.
