Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter July 15, 2016


Ok don’t tell my wife but I bought a new tent for camping. I think I can slip it past her except that I’m about to go on a quick weekend trip with the kids and I am a little worried that it will be delivered while I’m gone. Kinda hard to miss a big box showing up on the porch and the inevitable question – “what have you bought this time?” Me and the kids are about to going camping for a week in the NC mountains and my old tent was a 20 year old dry rotted mess.

This week I’ve been working on the “patch cave” and got several more sets of shelves built. I posted a picture in the SPC Facebook group and got some others to contribute pictures of their Boy Scout man caves. Bob Sherman and Larry Faulkner were two of the collectors that shared. I don’t know if this link will work but you can try and take a look here.

Mike Gosling has updated his book on world Boy Scout Insignia and I have a link in case you want to check it out. I’ve been following him on Facebook and he made an announcement earlier in the week. I own a copy of the older version that was in black and white but came with a CD in color. Looks like the book is in full color now. It’s amazing how far the technology has come to print books like this in the hobby.

Just this week as I was unpacking boxes I was posting things up to Facebook to move them to new homes. I placed a couple of small Boy Scout plaques, a tervis tumbler and have a coupe of royal ranger patches on their way to Belgium! All my Facebook items for sale can be found at
