I'm glad to hear this, I have just started trading patches with people I
have talked to from scouts-l for close to a year. These are valuable to
me, but I know I am no match for some of the traders on this list. Did
not know if a GS patch would interest the next in line. Since GSUSA council
patches are very plain and uninteresting I usually send past event patches.

This is the way it should be. The memories are worth so much more.

I value anything I would get from a friend, whether it be a patch, or
ashes from his fire. If someone took the time to do something for me,
that is special. If I win a patch, I'll think of it as I got it from a
new friend, not as I won a challenge, but I'll show it off just the same!

Thanks again for helping to bridge the gap. I hate it when I can't play. :-)
I'm leaving in a few minutes for camp, I'll think of you all sitting
'round the campfire, as I freeze my buns off. We're going close to 40
degees F tonight. Hand me another log guys!
