Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 8, 2015


I want to go ahead and share something with the readers that might not be such a secret anymore. After 18 years of living in Southeastern NC my family is preparing to move next summer to the Charlotte area. My wife took a job in the late summer with a magazine there and she has been living in an apartment in Charlotte since the end of August.

This school year I’ve been holding down the home front with the kids and teaching at the charter school they both attend. So this weekend we really started packing up things that we don’t need in anticipation of putting our house up for sale in 2016. It’s a little scary and exciting to be getting ready for a big move but there will be a lot more opportunities for the kids there. By some counts we live in the poorest county in North Carolina so to move to the big city will be a cultural change.

One bonus that comes with moving to Charlotte is that it will keep me in the Dixie Fellowship and I will live within 1.5 hours of probably a 1/2 dozen Boy Scout camps. Now I see why some guys like to spend their weekends visiting other lodges. My home camp will be just over 2 hours away so I’ll figure out the back roads to Society Hill as well.

As far as the patch business and this newsletter I don’t anticipate anything changing. My wife has actually said that I could go back to that as a full time job but I’m not sure that’s what I want to do. I’ll take it one step at a time and see what opportunities pop up.
