Introduction and Short Bio

I'm David Terrell. I'm from Keller, Texas. Keller is a small town on the
Northeast edge of the Fort Worth "metro" area. I'm a design engineer at
Bell Helicopter (so if anyone has Webelos working on "Scientist" or Scouts
on "Aviation" and needs diagrams, pictures or .... get in touch).
I've been registered one way or another since a kid (1966).
- Cubs (Pack 143, Conroe, Texas) I remember when the 'Lion' badge
went away and Webelos activity badges first showed up.
- Scouts (Troop 143) I was one of the 21 charter 'tenderfeet' of
the troop. Eighteen of us, myself included, made Eagle thanks to
my dad, who was Committee Chairman for 20 years (long after
I was gone) and the late Don W. Burns, SM. At his death,
some 95 Eagles from T-143 remained as a testimony to his efforts.
I still miss him. Philmont. OA. Staff at Camp Strake. The WoFat
Brigade (you had to be there). Ten consecutive years of Camp
El Rancho Cima without ever seeing it all or getting tired of it.
It's been a good life so far!
- Sea Explorers (Ship 313) Charter Bo'sun. Recipient of the first
'Dinghy' Award for climbing a 40-foot mast in heavy swell and
freezing rain, barefooted, during a regatta. But, we didn't finish
- ASM, Texas A&M, Navy OCS, SES Skipper, SM, Cub Committee Chair,
marriage, kid 1, 2, 3 & 4, KB5LAM, Cubmaster, Naval Reserves .....
(I guess those that can .... DO)
I'm backing off for a time and letting someone else take the helm
while I serve on a troop and pack committee. It lets me watch
my boys have the time of their life. My daughter is in first
grade now and I'm starting to learn about GS. Just finished Tim Jeal's
bio of B-P "The Boy-Man" and thought it was a human look at a great
I will read, ponder and occasionally comment.

PS: saw the request for "stories" and found a good collection in
"Sign's Up: A collection of scouting parables" by Vick Vickery
available from GOOD SIGN PUBLISHING, 4195 April Road, Pensacola,
PPS: I'll miss beekeeping ... but my oldest son won't ... my dad got
him started in time and I'll pass my patch on to him.
