So it took 30 years for that belt to start working right? I believe that!
Boy Scouts was a great experience for me - so many crazy stories. I didn't make Eagle because I was having too much fun. I did get Order of the Arrow and something beyond that called Brotherhood I think. I later went on to Explorer Scouts but I don't think they have that any more. We were a small rag-tag bunch out in the sticks but we had a good time. I learned to smoke and cuss in the Boy Scouts but they didn't have a merit badge for that!
Yeah, an airship would be so cool. Anybody have an extra million or so and want to sponsor the project? It would make a good retirement project for me! Please please!
