    • I don’t live in Seattle, but have driven the 405 many times during rush hour and traffic can downright suck. There are probably some REI employees doing the happy dance not having to drive in. 
    • I don't think it says anything negative if you wear the NESA knot.  You still earned your Eagle - so you still has to earn the award.  All the NESA knot really says is that you are an Eagle who has decided to become a lifetime member of the NESA.  There is no harm in that at all. 
    • The same thing is with the James West Fellowship knot. It is up to you if you wear the lifetime NESA version of the knot or not. My family only got me the 5 year membership (?) when I earned my eagle. When I just recently got back into scouts after almost 25 years I had to buy the knots. I said, well, I only want to sew on one eagle knot. What if I become a lifetime member later? So, I paid the $250 and got the NESA version. I wasn't going to take one off and put another on later. I wear it.  To me it shows either your own, or whom ever paid for your lifetime membership, monetary commitment to Scouting. The same as the James West knot.  
    • I'm putting my uniform together as I return to Scouting.  I'm a lifetime member of NESA.  The guy at the Scout shop mentioned there is a NESA knot, which seems odd to me.  What's the thoughts on it?  To me, the Eagle knot was earned, while the NESA knot was paid for.  
    • Fair enough.  I guess I have seen too many bench projects.   I don't believe I ever criticized the scouts.  When a project is too light or easy, the advisors should be advising and not signing off for a scout.  Many advisors sign off too easy for projects, rank, and merit badge requirements. If it came across a criticism of the scout, I apologize.  I as well am reaching my lifetime limit as well. Peace to you my scouting brother, happy to have ginger ale with ya at the scouting bar any time.
