Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 22, 2019

One of my shticks was doing an unboxing video live from the podium. I was trying to give the crowd a sense of what I do. The collection was from a Scout who attended Philmont in the 1960s. Turns out a pair of Eagle Scout brothers had spoken just prior to me and remarked how hiking at Philmont was the highlight of their Scouting careers. I was able to instantly recycle some of the items from the box like two Philmont buckles and an old arrowhead to those Scouts. That got a big applause and helped make my point about how Scouting really hasn’t changed that much. Fifty years ago this guy had done the same trail and that Philmont bull meant just as much to these teenagers.

I have been auctioning off a run of camp neckerchiefs on my $5 Dollar Patch Store. This is part of a sorting effort that gathered 1,000 neckerchiefs I had in boxes and now is putting them up for sale.

Meanwhile, on my Patchsniper account I have OA neckerchiefs running at auction. Some of these are conclave issues and others are lodge or national issues.

On Santeeswapper I am starting fresh with 25 auctions just launched. I will continue to launch another batch every night as I get a new consignment listed and continue with the Georgia OA collection I’m selling.

I know some friends are going to the St. Louis TOR this weekend. I’ve been in the past and enjoyed it. My Scouting calendar is too full to add on long drive trips. However, I did put down money for tables at the Winston Salem TOR just up the road from me in December!
