Ok this is it now, I just returned home after a few months in the USA. i happen to meet up with quite a few scout troops there in eight (8) diferent states. it was really interesting as i got a taste of the different cultures and traditions. i also expeirience scouting in different environments, etc; desert, mountains, swamps and bayou, and also the national forest. i also got to say, it did help me alot in understanding the youngsters and also with my ability as a leader.
