Nostaglia: Guiding Gear

A rare non-programming post. :)

At my parents' house this weekend, I found my Guiding gear from the early 80s.  I'm surprised to see the number of badges that haven't changed in 30 years!

Beside my Brownie enrollment pin is a pin that has a trefoil with a trillium flower that says GGC Ontario. I think I got it when we did an exchange trip with a group of Pathfinders in Ottawa. They came to see us one summer and we went up there the next one. My billet's name was Virginia. :)

I also found a tin full of my swimming badges and Canada Fitness test badges. So I have a lot of work to do on my camp blanket now!

I also found my camp hat. The best one (most representative of PEI) was this bag of potatoes:
