scout ranch

Cool, informed update from one of my readers on the Boy Scouts jacket I posted about last week.

Hey, saw your post as a result of a google alert I have setup and wanted to clarify.

That jacket is a leaders coat, and people usually fill them up with patches and the like from trips and outings.

The bull is one of the older logos of Philmont Scout Ranch, a huge high adventure base in New Mexico. The other patch likely means the person whose coat that was hiked some (unlikely all) of the Appalachian trail.

Thanks, Lou!
