#30(OooooNooo!) - Bear in mind that he earned his Eagle, he didn't win. But I totally understand and agree w/ your sentiment. Lemonade - Just because a kid can survive for 5 days in the woods doesn't mean that's the only thing he learned in Scouting. As a Scout I learned much more than survival skills. Now I am a leader of Cub Scouts, and I teach them to be honest, one of the 12 points of the Scout Law. So now I will be honest with both you and BubblestheChimp - I think that you are both douches. Way to go Chris!! You have blazed the Trail to Eagle and met with success!
