The Boy Scouts. I have fond memories of being a scout when I was a kid. It taught me a lot about nature, the natural and human kind. I swear, some of the meanest folks I have ever known were in the scouts. It was my first lesson in how to deal with people. Overall, the experience was great. Good friends were made and camping trips were so much fun. I have a wealth of stories based just on the misadventures we had. Summer camps, canoe trips, storms, broken bones, snakes, scorpions, and nights fireside flood my childhood memories.
