  Scott Wheeler sent me a message asking for the details of how I got my kid selling on eBay to pay her bills.  I told him that sounded like a good blog post topic and so this morning I typed up the story and shared our recipe in My Kid Pays Her Cell Phone Bill Selling On eBay. It has...Read More

  Friday I listed over 600 items from a collection of mostly SAPs that I've been sitting on for about a year.  Right now these are only on my Scoutpatchhq store where I can avoid eBay fees.  Probably before Thanksgiving I'll cross list them to eBay as well.   Last week I did get in a huge box but I did not...Read More

  I want to thank Jason Shull who shard with me scans of the earliest Camp Barstow patches.  The design in 1930 was a little rough but then in 1931 it was a little more professional and added the yellow background that we've incorporated.  I don't have a collection of Camp Barstow patches but I'd love to see someone do...Read More

  I am sure many collectors have had moments when they put something up for sale because of a bill coming due.  I've got a pair of super tough Philmont Ranger jacket patches(1971, 1972) up for bids for a simple goal.  Sophia's fees for the 2019 WSJ are about $2500.  Even selling these two won't pay for 1/2 of the trip...Read More

  This was a cool trip partially because it was a place that I had camped at with my troop as a Boy Scout back in the day.  Now living in Charlotte this park is only an hour away.  Today the girls hiked the battlefield trail and earned the patch.  My contribution to the trip included breakfast this morning in...Read More

  This year at camp we are rolling out a completely new program model.  We have been promoting it heavily in the council and now that the website is live we can spread the word to the masses.  It's interesting how today any troop in the southeast is really our target market.  As you know troops today think nothing of...Read More

  I know some of you think my Scouting adventures are crazy so listen to this week.  Tonight I have a Girl Scout meeting (I registered Friday as an official co-leader) in preparation for next weekend's camping trip.  After a Pack meeting Monday the next big event is the informational meeting for our church's new Scouts BSA Girl Troop Thursday...Read More
