".... If the 'end result' is empowered the journey there is empowered.... "

Grandfather - 1961

Scout

"To the scout, the wilderness had to be his home. He had to live in perfect balance and harmony with creation and follow its laws. His skill had to keep him safe and secure in all elements and landscapes, where he would need for nothing. His self-sufficiency would give him the utimate freedom to go as long and as far as he needed, without depending on anything but the earth. Until the scout attained and exceeded this level of skill and ease in living, he would stand out on the land and become a liability. Classic survival skills were not enough; they were just the beginning of that perfection and ultimate invisibility."

-- The Way of the Scout
