Yes, I was one of those boys who loved everything about Boy Scouts from Cub Scouts to Explorer Scouts and Adult Scouting, plus working for a summer camp and carrying the love of the outdoors from Scouts into the rest of my life with hiking and camping forever a part of me.
Of course Scouting influenced my life! Probably more than I can explain, but I will try a little bit here on these pages. It was different than the church, my Christian faith, and the spiritual influences of my early life, even though there were threads of connection.
