I wish I had had the opportunity to have all 34 boys, but half ended up getting their AOL from their pack and traditionally went with their feeder troop, the other half kinda split and some decided to go with the second troop. Of the 9 of 15 remaining boys who started with me all but one should be finishing up their AOL. If this batch of boys want to do the 50-miler this summer, I'm all for it. I will be doing it a couple of times with or without the scouts.
The Mrs. and I are also on the docket for doing 100 miles of the North Country Trail in honor of the NPS Centennial this year. Of course any boys are welcomed to come along on that too.
I make opportunities, it's up to them whether or not they take advantage of them. No skin off my nose, they're the ones running the show.
