Scoutaholic
 

You might be a Scoutaholic if:

Your home decor includes what some would consider a "shrine" with neckercheifs and patrol photos.

Your special occasion table cloth is made of the Maclaren tartan.

Your Christmas card photo was a family picture of the entire family in their scouting uniforms.

You make a concerted effort to stop by the local Council office in every city you visit, or drive through, or get close to when you travel.

There are ten or more merit badges that you have instructed so many times that you have all your supplies and materials ready to teach them at a moments notice, and you have the requirements memorized for all of them.

Your son hides his copy of Boys Life from you so that he can get a chance to read it.

Your Christmas gifts include a dutch oven, dutch oven cookbooks, a dutch oven lid-lifter, a charcoal chimney, and various other camping gadgets - and you have not been the Scoutmaster for over 5 years.

Your first thought about a Major holiday dinner is, "How can I do it all in Dutch Ovens?".

Your family vacations are like a Scout outing. You create an itinerary, assign grubmasters, post a duty roster, cook in dutch ovens or prepare backpacking meals, and set up your kitchen like a patrol kitchen (complete with the 3 tub wash method).

You're taking an EMT course, and you've taught most of the first aid skills longer than the instructor and many of your fellow students have been alive.
