I know lots of people involved in this org in SoCal. However, it is a totally different flavor than scouting. One huge difference is the allowance of alcohol on camping trips. BSA has a very strict rule against any alcohol.

I recall you also posted a photo of at least you and your older boy (maybe your younger one, too, I don't recall him though) at a "Guides" event: In the photo, you were wearing bib overalls as I remember it.

There's a very strict rule against alcohol in Y-Guides, at least here. I better not tell anyone here about them allowing alcohol in SoCal ... they got enough prejudices against Californicators as it is!

I can tell you for a fact there are no such rules here. I have been on campouts with Scouts and we were kept up pretty late by the guides and indian princess parents cavorting to the wee hours of the night.

Our sons played since kids. I am a poster and was banned on the last board for no reason. I exist and I post here a great deal. I am real. I crap just like everyone else and the dweebs that say I dont exist can come and clean my rear after a big one. I am a fan of the tars big and work independently with max on many garage type projects in sports. my favorite thing to do is football, trading cards, and doing everything with my grown kids.
Jeez, Rick, someone put a burr under your saddle?

Racing around the community telling everyone you really are? WHO CARES if people don't think you exist? Lighten up ... put your feet up ... toss back a cool one ... watch a game.

Life's too short to bother with the unimportant stuff.

Perfect. You beat the clock and I got 20.
No you didn't, Holmes. Max is way too proud (and probably smart) to take a sucker's bet like that from you. If anything, it probably worked the reverse of what you're claiming.

Actually, in this one event, you should probably stop giving yourself a visual colonoscopy and actually read what I wrote: What I told you was FAR from criticizing you as you seem to think I did. You've been racing around the community yelling at Hurl and anyone else about people saying you don't exist. YOU KNOW you exist ... so what does it matter what anyone else thinks.

Use that $20 to buy a pizza, put your feet up and enjoy the good life. If Max is silly enough to take a bet like that with you, this won't be the last time. :-s

Sorry! Don't think Sasha's made it over yet, though. :-$
