Chinski is on a distinguished road

Life was highest rank for me. I was inducted into OA but decided not to join. In my troop, there was me, another guy my age and about 5 guys a year older. Then the rest of the scouts were at least 2 years younger. They decided we (the older scouts) should form a Venture Crew and just be like a side group of the main troop (had our own number and ect). They said it was because we were hogging all the leadership positions and making it hard for the younger scouts to advance...I think there was something about "bad example" in there too It was fun though, we focused more on longer camping/backpacking events instead of the day/weekend things, and since all the others had Eagle there was little focus on badges so I never bothered to get Eagle. I regretted it a little bit while I was still active but not afterward.

I got to two ranks below my Eagle Scout rank. Time and interest were the issues on why I didn't complete mine :(

I always wanted to join scouting but my mother couldn't afford it. Now I'm a pure city boy and would probably starve to death on a farm if a grocery store weren't in driving distance.
