Really enjoyed a look around your blog. I have wanted to create a game box/backpack for sometime. You’ve inspired me that it can be simple.

Jeff, thanks for setting up this blog! I’m bookmarking it as a great resource. I’m our Pack’s training coordinator (not really a Pack Trainer yet, just keeping tabs on everyone’s training and trying to gently encourage same). Best wishes,

I’ve run across your blog before, but just followed it from the Cub Scout yahoo group. Good stuff here. It’s always good to see that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Jeff–I just found your site— I am not sure how I have missed it for so long! I have just poked around a bit– I am headed to work. But I will be checking out more of your info this afternoon. Thanks for what you do to make Scouting so great!

Hi Jeff,
Just listened to you 1st podcast and I think it was a good show.
One comment, you mentioned the you put your flip flops in a zip lock bag…I put mine in a dunk sack so they can dry out as it reduces the chance of bacterria from growing.
Especially if sprayed with a sanitizing solution similar to what the bowling alleys use in the rental shoes.
Give it a try.

Wow! You got a sneak preview, because it hasn’t been officially published yet πŸ™‚

Thank you for the reminder – I usually dry them out at the campsite, and I forgot to mention that. That is an important piece of information, so thank you for catching that!

11. madboom - August 24, 2009

I Just wanted to congratulate you on an excellent blog and podcast. The podcast is so good, in fact, that it is now on the Kids and Family “New and Notable” section in iTunes! Keep the great content coming!
