The hiking stick has a proud history with the scouts, and it all began with Lord Robert Baden-Powell. Click on the pic to see a close-up.

Do Your Best
The Cub Scout motto. That's what I tried to do for six years as a scout leader, four of them as cubmaster. Last night was the kick-off pack meeting for the new year, and the cubmaster who succeeded me asked if I would come by so that we could let the boys see that a transition had taken place. That was only part of it though. The pack leaders also wanted to say thanks, and presented me with a beautiful walking stick that has the Boy Scout emblem on it, and they also burned my name, cubmaster and the years 2001-2007 into it. I love it. I'm going to miss the Cub Scouts; but I am planning to continue on with the Boy Scouts in some type of capacity. I will keep you posted on that.
