If you have a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in your local area that
carries Fido-Net echo mail, you are set. There is an "International Scout"
echo that has existed for several years. Likewise, there is an
"International Scouting" echo that has existed for over five years.
The Scout echo is primarily for Scouts, but adult Scouters may post messages
to it. The Scouting echo is primarily for adult Scouters, but Scouts are
allowed and encouraged to post to it.
