There are some great merit badges ending at auction on eBay this weekend. I've got a pretty good collection but I need all these hard ones. This weekend I'll see some of the biggest merit badge collectors in the country in Norfolk. One of the benefits of buying collections is the small stuff you get to keep. Wednesday I got...Read More

Tomorrow I am driving to Columbia to attend a camping committee meeting. Of course I've lined up two different people to meet with on the way down to do some patch deals.

I think he said there were over 200 pre 1962 Order of the Arrow patches including the grandaddy of them all for my home state. He landed an Atta Kulla Kulla X1 which at one time was a...Read More

I got another table renter reservation this week from someone that did not come last year. That brings the total to 11 new table renters for the Charlotte TOR. Last year I had two different dealers stake out 20 tables. This time I've got a lot more collectors coming and getting 1-2 tables which I think will make for a...Read More

  As I've been to recent TORs I've been keeping an eye out for ideas that I can bring back for the Charlotte TOR. The Indy TOR is really impressive and the funds generated go towards camperships. The live auction had some nice pieces that brought in some good bids. The people were also very helpful and friendly. I'll definitely...Read More
