“The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything,” according to the Hitchhicker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Also, the number of days until course. Are you signed up? Did you know Douglas Adam’s Birthday was Monday? Don’t forget your towel.

50 Days

I have an app on my phone that shows me the number of days until course. Today it said 50. and I being growing up in the 70s and 80s, I of course thought of the Paul Simon’s 1975 song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”

“The problem is all inside your head”, she said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I’d like to help you in your struggle to be free
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover.

And although there maybe 50 ways to leave your lover, there are only 50 days until course, so you’ll want to signup long before that and take advantage of the $150 tuition celebrating 100 years of Wood Badge.

I know its tenuous, but it is how my mind works.  I still like to tie things together.

I look forward to seeing each and every one of you in 50 days.

Ninety Nine Years and One to Go

Ninety nine years ago, this coming July, Lord Baden Powell held the first Wood Badge course.  In just one year, I’ll have the honor of overseeing the current Wood Badge course here in the Anthony Wayne Area Council.  This website will be used to share information on the upcoming course, as well as provide a location to host several tools we’ll use leading up to, during and after the course.  Both participant and staff registration forms will be up soon.  Check back often.  I’ll try to share some of the plans as we get closer as well as interesting tidbits I learn as study this course closer than I have done in my previous experiences in Wood Badge.

Yours in Scouting,
