From Pathfinder Wiki

I am currently an Area Coordinator for Central Texas ([1]), and was previously director of the South Austin Inner Lights (SAIL) Pathfinder Club ([2]). I have been involved in Pathfinders on and off since I was 10 and could finally join. I enjoy teaching and leading youth to discovery - discovery in nature, in spirit and in their own capabilities. I have built out helps and study books for the Investiture Achievement ([3]) and for various Pathfinder honors ([4]) for the SAIL club and for Central Texas honor fairs. I am particularly fond of the nature honors, and enjoy working on them during my travels, and teaching them to hopefully instill a love of nature and a joy at finding God through his creation. I view this wiki less as the answer sheet than a starting point for exploration. The honors and the IA are not checklists of requirements to gain felt patches, but rather are the skeleton of more fully shaped study, learning, and experience. I would like to encourage the development and use of more visual materials from within our own Pathfinder clubs to make this honor helps manual truly a reflection of the Pathfinder learning and discovery experience.

Below are the honors I have accomplished, many I am in the process of re-learning to be better prepared to assist in teaching any of them. (The pictures change - on my sash, photography has an old bellows camera, and Native American Lore (Indian Lore when I took it) has a full color headdress.)
