I’ve been an adult volunteer for Scouting BSA since my oldest son entered Tiger Cubs almost 20 years ago. So I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to accompany my youngest to Philmont Scout Reservation in northern New Mexico earlier this month, my third and likely final trek to scouting’s paradise.
Unlike the highways my oldest son and I took on our cross-country journey in early June, there’s not a lot of connectivity in the backcountry. And I’d never have been able to stay off the grid were it not for the support of Elliott Gue, my partner of more than 8 years at Capitalist Times.
Nonetheless, as with the June trip, I picked up several investment insights I’d like to share with you now.
