Anyone every notice how much driving is involved in Scouting? I keep an old 15 passenger van simply because it is the easiest way to move a lot of Scouts and their stuff.
And it is paid for. But "The Beast" is getting old, and that will present a new slate of problems in the future.
How many miles do you drive for Scouting? Enough to keep track of for your taxes?

Hit the three-quarters mark today!
That means that many of you have been reading along for over 2 months now---and I appreciate it. Scouting takes a lot of effort, and reading other people's ideas feeds the fire
From field trips to thinking, Scouting takes a lot of effort. Stick with it! The results are worth it.

I really like the Centennial rank badges. Whether for Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts, having that "2010" on it signifies something special.
This whole season of Scouting is something special. The Scouts we have in our pack, troops and crews now will be in their 50s and late 60s when the sesquicentennial rolls around--older than many of us are now.
The rest of us? Waiving from the floats in the parades! I plan on sticking around to see it!
Young or old, each day we spend on Scouting creates another brick in the foundation for the future. Doing your best?

More Scouters keep commenting on 100 Days, and some are even joining in.
It is great to be a part of something that is helping to keep Scouting a part of daily life. Kind of like going to church on Sunday versus living like every day was a church day!
Do you treat Scouting like something special? Do you try to be a good Scout yourself...no matter how old you are?

100 Days is well past the halfway mark now.
This is a busy time of the year. Webelos Scouts moving to the troop. Summer camp questions almost every day. And pack meetings...never forget the energy and stress that go into making a good pack meeting.
What keeps you motivated for each day of Scouting?

Despite the picture, Scouting isn't all fun and games.
But it is a lot of fun. The 100 Days of Scouting is humming right along, cruising into the last few weeks. We have so much planned that is going to make it into the list!
Spring is in full swing--how are you taking advantage of it to help build Scouting? Tell us about it in the comments!
