Anonymous asked: so you do all like that knot stuff and camping in the forest telling ghost stories?
No, most people’s idea of Scouting is wrong, very wrong at least it is for Australian ones and a little bit of British anyway
We can do that stuff (if we want to) but we do much more than that
It’s more of a social thing than anything
I mean like through out my 11 years of scouting, I’ve flown planes, sailed when I was like 8, performed at the Adelaide entertainment center, rock climbed, been to beautiful beaches and hiked through glorious forests, I met the only person I can say I’ve ever actually loved and gained more friends then I ever had through school. And those are just the things that come to mind first and that I can remember seen as though I joined when I was 5.
So yes, we go camping, we can tie knots. But I actually loathe the way the media portrays us
urgh scouting rant over
Thank you for putting into words rather well what so many of us think and feel so often.
