The next is in 2010. You can serve on staff as a youth until your 21st birthday. A 18 year old can serve as an asst. sm with the contingent so there are opportunities in the future.

The car is juiced and packed. My son and I leave at 5 AM tomorrow morning (7/20) and arrive at the Hill Thursday AM. We are both pretty excited. Stopping at Whgright Patterson Air Base abd Museum on the way, Kings island on the way home.

Wagionvigil, thanks for the great packing list it has been invaluable.

Looking forward to meeting some posters there. Eamonn especially. My son is a drummer in the BSA band, I will be at the Daily Stage introducing the acts.

See ya at the Hill!

Well finishing packing today. Just finished speaking with the Executive Producer for my News outlet to finalize the plans for Hometown News. Have to run around a few places to get last minute things.
Will be waking up at 4:00am tomorrow to leave at 5:00am to be at the troop meeting spot by 5:30am to leave with the troop and council contingent promptly at 6:00am.(I am already dreading getting up)
I will be in D.C. until Monday morning when we leave for "the hill" Going to be an amazing experience. Look forward to sharing stories and pictures.

All of you that will be there "I will meet you at the hill"

My stuff is packed in the car. My son will be here in aboiut 1/2 hour with his footlocker, and then we're off.

Stop by the Traffic Safety Merit Badge booth on the midway, and say hello (and try the "Fatal Vision Goggles and see our other exhibits while you're there.)

In about and hour, we'll be headin' for the Hill--a one-day trip to visit the son. I hate forcing my teenagers (all four of them) to do family things; so, I was quite pleased when all three of my girls decided they'd like to go. And, as an added bonus, we'll be picking up my dad along the way, who went to the 1950 NSJ. (I went in '77.) The boy's a third generation Jammer. I'm proud of the fact that I didn't have to "push" him. [And knowing me, I would've pushed.] His SM for the NSJ contingent is also his regular Troop's CC. Bill's a great man; and, as we all know, they are few and far between.

I think (hope) that by 2010, National will catch up with the times and let girls start attending NSJs as participants. I've got one for sure, possibly two, that would like the opportunity to follow in Papa's and Grandpappy's footsteps. Oh well, Philmont's next year.
