I should go buy a lottery ticket today!

I was able to find the other Vido that has eluded me for years.

Any Boy Scout knows that dryer lint is great for starting campfires. By itself, but especially if you add some melted wax (old crayons) or petroleum jelly. Ya takes your empty cardboard egg carton and ya fills each egg depression with lint and then come by wid your pot of melted wax and pours it over the top. After the wax has cooled and hardened, youse can rip the carton into individual chunx of carton and lint and wax (Oh My!).
Problem is I flunked Boy Scouts. but that is a GREAT idea and I have to start working on it asap in case of power outage.

When you’re stuck starting a fire without matches nor modern tools, you quickly come up with odd materials to start that fire. That’s knot you say eye was good at starting fires without matches or lighters or cheat sticks (and/or lighter fluid), but eye still somehow turned into an eagle.

Bravo! You were always an Eagle, you just had to do a couple things so others would notice you were an Eagle.

I never made it past the first hike where some of us got so thirsty that we drank from a spring we found in Rouge Park. Who knows what was in that water.

yes, once an e-gull, all ways an e-gull. the scouts was like a second family to me (note my dad moved out and later moved south so some of the leaders were like father figures to me), so if you're going to spend several years in the scouts, you might as well try to become an e-gull. there are several scouts eye knew who either didn't bother trying to make e-gull or they didn't finish their e-gull projects. that bright red life badge did look good (life is the rank before e-gull for those knot inn the know). sum even stopped at star (the rank before life). stopping at a lower rank wouldn't be too wise though, for an older scout. eye actually earned e-gull right before my 18th birthday, so eye didn't get to wear the beautiful e-gull badge on my uniform - eye had to wear the little life knot, since at 18 you become a leader (typically an assistant scoutmaster) and can't wear badges like the scouts do.

well, your still alive, so... reminds me of a hike one of the leaders (one of the many assistant scoutmasters, but i think he was also the treasurer if memory serves me) took us on during a camping trip. this was one of those 4-7 mile hikes through woods where you have no idea where you are or where you're going, at least til you see a shopping mall down the hill at one point. eye wasn't much of a hiker on my own, but eye rode a mountain bike regularly on trails, so i had the leg and body strength to endure long hikes and keep up with the troops, despite being bigger than most of them and even some of the leaders at that point. like a lot of things in life, it pays to knot give up til you have to, and to give things a chance.
