A Scout is Friendly…

Before I get started, I wanted to apologies for such a long break from my last posting. Its been quite the busy time. We’ve moved from Minnesota to Colorado. We’re looking forward to the adventures of scouting in our new region.

On one of the trips we drove through South Dakota. Pierre was one of the communities we drove through. This brings me to my topic. Just about everyone driving towards me had some type of wave as I drove by on the highway. My wife insisted I get with the swing of things and wave back to these friendly folks. As I exchanged waves, I started to think about this situation. Most of these people live in South Dakota and that is the way life is … friendly and happy. I still think they all thought I was the Governor. If you think about it a little, I was driving a white American made SUV and I was coming out of Pierre. I do not know what the Governor of South Dakota drives, but I am sure everyone near Pierre knows the Governor. My wife didn’t think so either.

This long time in the car had me thinking about all of the friendly people we have met in the past couple of years. Many of them are from the Fargo-Moorhead community and especially in the scout troop we are a part of. Being part of Scouts in general will help a young boy with being a friendly character. All you have to do is say ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’ and then smile.

My challenge to you is to say ‘Hello’ to 10 random strangers…

Lead by example,

Scouter Steve
