The Boy Scouts sucked. My son did that for several years...cub scouts. His dad usually took him but on the occasions I went it was painful. The den mom who ran the meetings really had no control over these boys and it was absolute chaos. All appeared to have ADHD or something except my son who also hated the chaos. He did win first in his pinewood derby race for a few years, went camping, and participated in various get togethers but when it came to finally being a Boy Scout he said nope and I said thank god. It was one less thing to worry about during the week. Didn’t like the overt religious stuff and attitude either. Okeefe take your son and teach him about camping yourself or I’m sure Duff could help out.

Man, that sucks. I was hoping to get my boy into scouting because around here there is all kinds of shit to do in the mountains. It ain't like Durty Dodge where the trips were "Hey, kids we're gonna separate you from your parents and send you to Dolliver Park with Chester the Molester."
As the article noted, LDS split off its group and down here there are a bunch of staunch Christian conservative groups doing their own thing. The Scouts have allegedly turned liberal, but I'm not sure what that would mean in this context. I don't want to send my son on a trip with a bunch of candyass liberals or a bunch of Christian conservatives, I just want him to go out and learn to light fires and hike trails and shit without someone forcing him into songs about Jesus or to sit through some bullshit 2 hour class on diversity or whatever. Maybe I should start my own apolitical scouting organization where kiddy diddlers are banned.
Mostly camped at the BSA camp on the west side of Lake Okoboji, not far from the little marina and down the road from a place run by Jess and Connie, who had a dirty spoon joint on 12th in teh Dodge. Never overnight camped at Dolliver but did camp multiple times in the valley they later flooded to create Brushy Creek. Good times. You mentioned learning shit. We learned how to create a latrine. Never used leaves for TP tho.
Rip Marshall Yanda's NFL career. I'm sure there is an insurance agency or car dealer in Iowa City looking to hook you up with your retirement job.
He made 70 million over 13 years. He's prolly not looking for work.
"Rick, this is Marshal Yanda from the Troika insurance agency in Coralville. I got your name out of a raffle sign up box we put up at Coral Ridge Mall. Is there any chance I could talk to you face to face sometime about a variable annuity or whole life policy from Northwestern Mutual?"
