Speaking of videos Brad England and I have plans to catch up later this week and film a World Scout Jamboree round up episode of Thread Heads. Brad and his daughter traded at the WSJ at the beginning of the visitor period and I went up at the tail end. I can't wait to debate the rule on no trading...Read More

When I picked up Sophia later Friday afternoon she was full of stories. We sat for over an hour listening to her tales of meeting Scouts from Japan and Portugal.  We also heard about the usual troop drama but mostly it was all good.  I asked her last night at dinner if she thought she would be a different person...Read More

I don't know if August is really when the action on eBay heats up but I'm going for it anyways.  Yesterday I got over 100 World Jamboree items listed that I was able to bring home after 3 days of visiting.  I have not really been watching closely to see which of the WSJ items are doing the best.  I traded for...Read More

Before trading a few patches I took a quick tour with my daughter seeing the sites near the Summit Center. The highlight of which was visiting the museum staffed by Bob Hanna, Dave Miura, Doug Schwab and Sam Fairchild to name a few.  I had a nice long talk with Bob and he told me Russell Smart had a lot...Read More

If you go over on my Facebook profile I filmed an unboxing video for a collection that came in last week.  This one is from the west coast.  I've been working on it for about 6 months and it is almost completely OA which is my favorite collecting area to resale. It's about 3.5 hours from Charlotte to the Visitors...Read More

I am at the High Country Bus Festival.  No not school buses but rather vintage VW camper bus folks.  If not for the rain I would be tubing in the river right now but the forecast for tomorrow looks sunny so that will have to wait a day.

Yesterday we closed down Camp Barstow for the season after a very successful summer.  We rolled the dice with a completely different programming model and it was a huge hit with the Scoutmasters and Scouts.  Overall we had a 30%+ increase in attendance.  The plans for 2020 area already underway and we will get the leaders guide polished up in...Read More

My other motivation is I landed my second large collection in the last three months that has 1000+ OA flaps so I have a lot of work to do scanning listing and selling these items to recoup money. My daughter is going to the WSJ and this will be her Scouting memory. CLICK HERE TO OPEN THE JULY 21, 2019...Read More

I was told by somebody this week that World Jamboree has the no adult/youth trading deal.  I guess I thought that was urban legend buy maybe not?  If you know for sure ping me back since I have not purchased my day tickets yet.

One of my camp staff members has floated the idea of doing some patch work for me since he doesn't live too far from Charlotte.  I can always use some help on small projects organizing and scanning so after the dust settles from camp and WSJ we will see.

Wednesday I head home for the first extended time in 3 weeks.  I should be able to get to the warehouse and get some work done but it won't be long.  After that it will be another 2 weeks solid at camp.  But all together the news is great from camp.  We have happy Scouts and Scoutmasters and are attracting...Read More

My son Patrick is also in camp with us this week.  Yesterday he carved a fox totem with his pocket knife, went swimming with his sister during free swim and out on a paddle board with dad after supper.  I'd say that's a good day in camp!

Today I am going to try my hand at making a Low Country boil for the Scoutmasters.  This is a classic that features corn, potatoes, onions, and shrimp. It's all cooked together and poured out on a table for a finger looking good feast. I hope your summer is going great too. CLICK HERE TO OPEN THE JUNE 18, 2019...Read More
