I just got back from a week at Philmont (Boy Scout Advancement Conference.)
Learned a little too much, had a little too much fun, gonna have to give
some back. Awww.
What a place! After being there only 4 hours, I found myself trying to
figure out how and when I could come back. I met incredible people (one
from our own Scouts-L, Hi Lucien!) from all over the country. The show in
the sky was better than all the tv shows and movies I've ever seen all put
together. The government would be proud of the food (that's not a good
thing) but the great company at mealtime made digestion happen anyway.
That contagious enthusiasm that keeps us all coming back for more and more
and more in Scouting...that is the heartbeat of Philmont. Pardon me while
I go warble another verse of the Philmont Hymn....
