      Reply to Eagle Scout Mother. I have used “Where Eagles Fly” by Sammy Hagar. In a couple slide shows. One slideshow in particular was a Court of Honor which was done as Philomont High Adventure in New Mexico at base camp with the “Tooth of Time” in the background. Truly a memorible site to have been at and then re-visited via slide show pictures. “Where Eagles Fly” Starts out nice and slow and builds. It is perfect for Eagle Scouts slide shows. Best of Luck.

    3. I love your blog. I am trying to earn every merit badge. I have created a blog to keep track of my journey to do so. One of the merit badges I am currently working on is the Business Merit Badge. As part of the requirements, I need to run a business for three months, so I have decided to monetize my blog to fulfill this requirement. I was wondering if you would add my blog as a link on your page to help increase my traffic. I think you will find it entertaining and inspiring for other Boy Scouts. Thank you for your consideration.

      Hello

      I am a Young Assistant Scoutmaster from Troop 17 East Jordan, Michigan and I just happened across this site while doing a Google search about scouting uniforms just now.

      I liked the video you guys had about tucking in the uniform a lot. I think every youth attempts to wear the uniform unbuttoned with there hat backwoods at some point in there scouting career. Even I did this as a youth but don’t tell my boys that. LOL! I will bookmark this site as I may want to show your video to the boys in my troop someday. =D
