Also, don’t underestimate the power of the fire. It doesn’t take much to take a 7 year old back to his caveman roots. For April … Continue reading »

Day 49-62: Gilwell

Thirteen days is a big spread to cover all at once, but the last two weeks has had one unifying theme: my Wood Badge course, W5-61-11-1. I have started, deleted, and re-started a blog post about my Wood Badge experience three times now. When asked about whether Wood Badge is worth the time and expense … Continue reading »

Today bright and early at 7 AM was the start to my Wood Badge course, W5-61-11-1. I am sure I am having lots of fun and learning a lot. I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. I think that qualifies as doing something scouting related today. Might be hard pressed to find … Continue reading »

Day 45: Wood Badge Expectations

I’ve been meaning to write about my expectations for Wood Badge before I have the experience. Since I leave bright and early tomorrow morning for day one, I guess that writing will have to be today. Through work I have had classes in situational leadership, project management, the seven habits class, and other related topics. … Continue reading »
