As soon as they published a handbook for the Navigators and Adventurers, back in the earliest days of Trail Life USA, our Troop purchased a bunch of them!
It wasn’t uncommon to see someone sitting around reading it anytime we were together.
Many of the leaders, myself included, bought handbooks for ourselves, so that we could get to know this wonderful new program.
The only problem was how easy it was to mix your book up with someone else’s! Sure, most of us wrote our names in the front to help, but you still had to pick the book up and look inside to see if it was yours. I know, I know, first world problems, right?
It didn’t take long before I wanted to make this process easier for myself, so I asked my wife to make me a custom book cover so it would be easy to spot mine anywhere.
She delivered big time! She hand embroidered the TLUSA Logo on the front, then added camo, orange, and a “last name badge” for me! What more could a guy ask for?!
