No advancement, no MB's. No Nuthin???
Let me tell you a story about a scout who spent one whole week at BSA camp
doing nothing but spending every waking hour he was allowed sailing. That
summer he learned both a love for and the skills required for sailing. That
was four decades ago. That boy now grown still sails to this day and his
love for it has not diminished.
Was that week at summer camp wasted?? No merit badges, no advancement. You
May fair skies and gentle winds be always with you.
