I had a small but good troop. Met some weird troops that were all “yay war alt-rights-of-the-future-check-out-my-dads-guncollection” types but my troop was all Boy Scout manual, nothing much about merit badges, more about “how to be a good person, know first aid, enjoy the outdoors and learn some self-reliance skills”.
I was the final member of the troop too. They kept it running for a whole extra year just for me which I thought was awesome.
But one day, Troop 52 was no more. The bigger troop in our 1 sq mile town ate up the others the year before but I was the holdout. Didn’t like the other troop. Too aggressive.
