I only made it to Star Scout before I quit. I just became entirely disinterested in it. And this was before I did drugs.

I made it up to first-class, and then quit. I noticed that bad weather seemed to follow me on every camping trip I went on.

Me too!

After a while it just got really annoying because even if the weatherman predicted a sunny day and cloudless night, without fail it would be cloudy, chilly, and rainy during the campout.

Rain just makes a campout more fun.  Any Eagle Scout can tell you that! :smirk:

I actually once got a merit badge for bad-weather camping, due to one particular snow camping trip in which we snowshoed in for a few miles. Upon getting there, the temperature was just high enough to rain, rather than snowing. Getting hypothermia on the way back sure was fun.

:lol: I also got hypothermia on a Scout outing.  It was a cross-country skiing trip.

I don't recall there being a "Bad Weather Camping" merit badge.  I did however get seperate merit badges for the following:

Camping
Wilderness Survival
Weather

Combine those and I guess it would qualify as "Bad Weather Camping".  :grin:

Wilderness Survival was a fun merit badge to get, probably my favorite.  We sat around a fire that I had to keep going all night in the middle of no where, with no flashlights or sleeping bags or anything, just some matches.  That was cool.  And yeah, I don't remember a Bad Weather Camping badge either :lol:

I'm an Eagle Scout. I credit all all of my love of camping, hiking, and getting away from it all to my time in scouts. We had a very active troop. I got to do Philmont, Boundary Waters, cave camping, and winter camping too.
