Scout's Honor Bike Race
Last weekend I went out to Goochland to shoot video of Cycle Ed's Scouts Honor 18 Hour Race. I had a blast, and even dragged my BOB trailer around the course for a lap- used it as a camera sled. I've got to finish up my Bike Virginia videos first, but once I do, I'll get some video up from Scouts Honor.
Being an Eagle Scout, it only seemed appropriate to wear my scout shirt to a bike race at a Boy Scout camp. My mom dug my old shirt out of the cedar closet (thanks, Mom!), and sent it to
me, along with my Dad's shirt. While I could still fit into my old shirt, it was too tight across the shoulders to be comfortable on the bike, so I ended up wearing my Dad's shirt. Aside from the fact that I didn't attend the 1963 National Jamboree, nor serve as the Troop 216 Committee Chairman, it was all legit.
(Thanks, Dave, for the picture!)
