Just watched the morning news here in Houston and the local anchor woman did
a story on some scouts who got lost overnight in the woods somewhere in
Montana or Nevada (my wife had the hair dryer on so I didn't hear...) and
guess what? They only had matches and they survived the night!
She then laughed and said "maybe they should get the survival award or the
Eagle Merit Badge, isn't that the elite Scout award?" Well, they all had a
good laugh and went on to the weather and traffic.
