One of my true regrets is not going back to Philmont as an Adult. I went right I after I earned Eagle Scout, at 14 or 15, I was youngest in my trek. It was an amazing experience, but I will admit now (a long time later), that I spent alot of time cold and afraid. I often wonder what it would be like to go back as an adult, with modern gear (down, nice tents, gore tex, etc).
I had daughters, so never got back into Scouting after the Navy, until a few years ago. I am active at the Council Board level, and it has been very rewarding, giving something back to the organization that, probably more than any other factor, helped me get into USNA. I was a kid that moved a few times in HS, and the one constant that I had, was Boy Scouts.
Yes, I am a big fan and supporter of Scouting and what it does, and am living an guiding my Council through some rough waters, including both the Bankruptcy and COVID. These are tough times, but its a great program and will come through stronger !
