Happy Kwanzaa



Some of you may have noticed a new addition to the sidebar recently (over that way —>). Seems that someone (or someones?) felt that my little blog was worth nominating for the 2013 Canadian Weblog Awards – Sports, Fitness & Recreation category. This tops off several interesting months since I first clicked the publish button back in July.

Since then I have been blessed with support that I never imagined. The 1228 views from multiple countries around the world still amazes me. Writing about Scouting, I had assumed that there would be a very small niche interested in what I might have to say. Boy was I wrong! So thanks to my readers as well as the person that submitted Leader Daze for consideration.

Just being considered is reward enough for me! I have no idea where this trail I’m following will lead, but it is nice to have some company along the way.

Until next time…

Be safe, be prepared, and Thank You!

Thought for the Week – August 11th (Early Edition)

I’m Going Off the Grid!

It’s just one more sleep until I head off to Scout Camp! Thanks for ignoring all the “I’m not a camp yet” comments and tweets. 7:30 am tomorrow I’ll be loaded down and north bound! For a fun-filled week at the Haliburton Scout Reserve. I may manage to catch the occasional cell signal but for the most part I’ll be off grid.

Now I really clever eScouter would have written several posts and used the scheduled posting feature and none would be the wiser. Sorry folks you’re stuck with me! Anyway I’m going to skip over the “Tweet of the Week” (last weeks was so incredibly awesome it can cover this week too!) and actually post the Thought of the Week a bit early.

Thanks again for reading this little blog and have an awesome week too!

Until then…

Be Safe, be prepared, and keep Scouting!
