The Moss Boss, that's the best. I'm jealous, I never had any cool nicknames. What is Philmont? Funny how we get along, we're so different. Guess that's the fun in life, right? Who'd want to hang out with a bunch of me's anyways?

Philmont is the high adventure Boy Scout camp in New Mexico. They have a training center that adults attend and bring their families along. I worked at that training center in the program office. It was a great summer.
