I would have never guessed that it would be so hard to find a group to go with for Jamboree.
I have now checked with the 5 councils nearest me.
My council had the least helpful answer, "We don't do it that way, If you don't like our way then don't go."
Grand Teton and Nevada Area Councils both said, "We have always done it this way and don't expect to change, but if you call back in 2009, the decision will have been made for sure."
Utah National Parks council said, "We have never had anyone ask to do it without the tour, but we are considering offering that to see if anyone wants to do it. Call back in January, and we might know more."
The guy at Trapper Trails council who can answer my questions is out of the office until 8/5. Still don't know what their response may be.
I'm not sure if my next step should be joining a troop from Virginia, or complaining to someone at national that my local council won't let me join them.
