Rob Greenfield, an Eagle Scout from Ashland, Wisc., recently biked 5,000 miles across the country by himself to inspire people to live an Earth-friendly lifestyle. Rob was nice enough to contribute a post about his experience to our sister blog over at Scouting magazine.
Among other things, Rob writes about what it takes to become an Eagle Scout:
To all you Scouts out there, I say keep your eye on the prize and achieve the prestigious ranking of Eagle Scout. Use negativity and put-downs as fuel for your fire and when you are feeling like giving up, just man up and do what needs to be done. You are going to achieve greatness in life, and becoming an Eagle Scout is going to put you leaps and bounds ahead of the rest of the pack.
Good stuff, right?
