    Almost two years ago I created a Patreon community called the Scouting Hot Finds Insiders. During those 21 months I have published over 50 videos to the group with exclusive behind the scenes access to what I've got cooking in the patch warehouse. Some of these videos have included unboxings and some have been revealing projects that I've been...Read More

    This week I pulled off a trial by fire first episode of Scouting Hot Finds Live. Tico Perez was my guest and he talked about why Scouts and Scouters should make plans to attend the 2023 National Scout Jamboree. I learned several new things during the show including an incredible opportunity for younger adults to serve on staff at...Read More

Well I am at it again trying something new. Thanks to inspiration from my long time friend Paul Gowder (www.PowWows.com) I am going to try doing a weekly 30 minute live show. The idea is to take all of the varied content projects that I've started over the last few years and put them into one packed show. Things like...Read More

    Tonight I am making an almost 2.5 hour drive to southeastern North Carolina to donate some items to the Cape Fear Council Historical Association. I have been in touch with Bob Walton and Jonathan Widmark regarding Sea Scout memorabilia that I dug out of Lumberton when I lived there over 15 years ago. Previously I've donated some items...Read More

    Steven Spielberg might be a bit of a controversial figure in the minds of many long time Scouters. Those of us who were youth in the 1980s were awed by him at the 1989 National Scout Jamboree when he unveiled the Cinematography merit badge. The falling out happened in later years when he kinda renounced the organization during...Read More

  If I've learned one thing from hosting a TOR - you had better NOT make it a well kept secret. As the organizer the responsibility you have is to get people in the door. At my TOR we have free admission so it's not about the door draw. It's about the energy in the room Last night at 4 different Round...Read More

    This summer at Camp Barstow I had the opportunity to film one of the most unique unboxing videos from the 50+ that I've done. This one was live in front of a group of Scouts and leaders during our Pop Up Scout Museum activity on a Tuesday night of camp. The collection was out of Arkansas and belonged...Read More

  Friday I got a cool collection in and just had to unbox it with a quick video. This came from a guy in TX who was part of an Air Explorer squadron for a short time. Literally I think the guy only achieved the rank of 1st class as a Scout but he was proud of that uniform and...Read More

  I was literally so busy Tuesday that I forgot to put out a newsletter. That is despite the fact that I've been doing this religiously since 2009. Well that's what happens when you get buried trying to sort out a collection purchase. In fact for three days straight I've done little else but sort these collections I picked up....Read More

    I helped Russell Smart create a Shopify Store so that he could begin breaking up his vast collection. He started this project by parting with an OA odd shape collection. The next phase was adding in a large group of OA first flaps. Now that summer is over he is running a sale on everything in the store...Read More

    Today I am excited to announce that I will once again be hosting the Charlotte Trade-O-Ree at my church in less than two months. I have scanned lodge calendars and I can see no conflicts for this date among the Carolinas save a Vigil weekend on Saturday night at Camp Durant. I just got the word yesterday so...Read More

  This morning my main project is to take my unsold 2022 pieces and post them in my eBay store at BIN prices. I'll just take my minimum bid from the auction strategy and convert that to the fixed price. My nearly 4 week run of auctions paid off and I sold many of the better pieces. But even with all...Read More
