Ok, I know I just requested my charter for a Scout group herein Spokane only 5 days ago but I feel like a kid at Christmas. It seems it will never get here! I have set up a meeting with some interested families already and have been getting the info I need to pass on to them the awesomeness of the BPSA and Scouting in general. The thing I am most excited about though is being a Scout myself! I was never allowed to be a Scout because of some of the exclusiveness of the BSA that my dad and older brothers experienced so I was never allowed to join. I have been a BSA Scout leader. It is not the same thing as being a Scout. One of the reasons I joined the Marine Corps was because they got to play the game of Scouting. The Air Force did not do it so much. I would say that that is the one thing I miss most about the Corps is the getting outside and Scouting. I am not sure how long this will take to get the charter and other paperwork done but I think we are just going to jump in and start working on our adventures. To start, I have 2 Rovers, 2 Pathfinders an a Timberwolf. This is going to be a grand adventure!
