Sedalia Dave


Recommended Posts

I want to send a BIG ol' Thankee out to Sedalia Dave...!

 

About two weeks ago I received a package from Dave ~ a "contribution for a deserving Boy Scout."  Inside the parcel was a really cool mess kit, almost seventy years old and brand-spanking new!   :lol:

 

Stamped on the lid (which doubles as a skillet):

 

GI Mountain Cookset

U.S.

F.E.S.C.O.

1952

Well, I am plumb tickled to report that this kit is now a most prized possession of a proud young Tenderfoot named Zhe (middle and last names I cannot pronounce - "You can just call me 'Z,' Mr C!")

 

It seems that this youngster's ambition is a career as a chef, and he's presently working on his Cooking Merit Badge.*  The lad was absolutely delighted!

     *(The Cooking Merit Badge is a requirement for Eagle Scout candidates.  And it is tough - a few years ago I asked our staff nutritionist at work to review the requirements; she was astonished.  Click on the link above and check it out!)

 

Dave, you gave this guy a real boost... and his troop leaders were downright impressed, too!  The gentleman on the far right exclaimed "Hey!  I've had the same kit since I was a kid!"  [Retired California Department of Forestry firefighter Tim Escobedo, Troop 117.  Troop 117 will be 100 years old in 2025]

 

Thank you again!  ^_^

Hardpan, the link you embedded just brings you back to your post.

Pretty darned impressive list of requirements.

 

Wow, Joe... that's really odd!

 

On my computer it takes me to the merit badge worksheet (all 33 pages of it!).  But on my tablet, it did just what you described.

 

Let's try this:  http://usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/cooking.pdf

 

Edit:  Nope.  Still does it.  Mebbe copy URL into a new tab...?  :huh:

Maybe because it opens a PDF.  The copy and paste works.

Quite a list of requirements. Surprised to see elements for researching careers in cooking, especially in this age of fast food.

 

BTW, the link in the quote works for me (I did not try the earlier link). Safari on MacBook Pro.

Elderly gentleman down the street used to stop with his dog Annie and we would chat. Had me follow him home one day and he fixed me a drink while we talked. After a bit he came out with his dad's Ithica double, his Remington model 12 and his Scout mess kit. Wanted me to have them. Miss ya, Jack.
