Rosehip hunting in Alderfer

I could not be any prouder of my fellow commissioners right now.

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.
