Just stumbled on this forum while doing some google searching. Looked like a neat information filled site and decided to sign up and join these fine looking forums today. A little bout myself I am a Scout Master for Troop 187 I pretty much grew up in the Scouting program my two older brothers are both Eagle Scouts. I earned my Eagle Scout in 04, a few years down the road we needed a Scout Master so I decided to jump in and go for it its fun and hectic at times, but I wouldn't change anything. I enjoy cooking outdoors I think more then I do inside, you don't have to worry too much about messes and the food almost always tastes better. I prefer cast iron cooking and charcoal grilling to gas I will use it when I have to but in my little world gas is dirty word LOL. I work in retail for one of the big box giants, been doing bout 10 yrs its a paycheck and that's bout all. I tend to day dream off bout a cabin in the woods where I don't have to answer to a boss or work in a structured 9-5 world cause at this point its getting old. As far as overall experience I been learing how to cook since i was 13-14ish now at 28 I wouldn't say I'm an expert but always open to learning new things. I could probably go on and write a book if I kept going. But thats enough of an intro i think . Have a good day all thank you for stopping in and reading Mike.
