I've heard this from a lot of girls who had brothers/parents involved in Boy Scouts. Did you ever try joining a Venture Crew?

I went from Cub Scouts to being a Boy Scout until middle school and then got interested in girls.Even thoughmy parents would have no part of it other than drop me off and pick me up I still went. Same with hunting.As I was growing up, guns were not allowed in the house and hunting was out of the question. Going outdoors meant going golfing not fishing or hunting. In 1998, I got hurt in the woods and I was all alone. Without mytraining from Boys Scouts, I may not be here today.Although my oldest son quit before becoming an eagle, he went though it and is now in the Air Force. It is a great organization. My youngest will have nothing to do with it....he doesn't think it cool, even though he loves to go fishing, camping and hunting with me. Our church and the company I work for are very active with the organization.

I remember the survival course I took while I was still a youth member in B.S. The person who ran the course was an ex-Navy Seal. Looking back at it, he deffinitely had some PTSD going on! But I learned a ton and still remember how to do most everything he taught us.

I was coming down from a tree, setting up my tree stand. My wedding ring got caught on one of the screw in steps as I was hopping off the last step.It ripped my finger off. Talk about pain,panic and lots of blood. Luckily I got out of the woods and found a house with somebody home that coulddrive me to E/R. Lesson learned...I no longer go into the woods alone.
