Rosehip hunting in Alderfer
Eagle Scout Centennial patchSeveral years ago, saved searches on eBay helped me acquire patches from the years my dad attended summer camp as a youth for his patch blanket. I thought that was quite lucky.

This morning, I saw a request on my district's commissioner mailing list for a pre-Centennial uniform shirt and a few discontinued patches for a young man that had lost his uniform to wildfire after Spanish Peaks Scout Ranch was evacuated. Within an hour we had a shirt pending finding out the Scout's size and one of the discontinued patches. A few hours later, the patch I expected to be hard to find because it was only available in 2012 came up from another commissioner.

...I'm not crying, it's just dusty in here.

That dust can be murder on your sinuses. *hands hanky*

It can be - and thank you.

I buy tissues in bulk most of the year. (:

I was so excited someone had an Eagle Scout Centennial patch they were willing to share. Patch collectors can get pretty cut-throat - there's an older style of an award my dad earned as a youth and every time it shows up on eBay it goes for over $40.
