Who Are You?We're former Scout leaders for both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
Our Scouting Credentials are listed here.
We had a lot of fun as scout leaders, and now we do "Scouting for Grownups" - the same activities, without the hassles of dealing with endless paperwork, paid staff, risk management, and annoying parents.
What Do You Do?Adventure Travel - check out the sidebars to the left for trip reports.
We keep an email list for our friends and family to get invitations to adventures and trip reports about our adventures.
Whitewater Rafting in the Spring and Fall - we own a professional grade 11' Achilles whitewater raft and take friends rafting down the multitude of rivers in Western Washington.

Why Evil?In Spring of 2001, we were trying to find a domain name for our Scouting website. We wanted to put all our event registration forms on line and we needed a URL that would be easy for Scouts and parents to remember. We spent weeks trying to find a domain name that wasn't already taken.
During the process of creating web site names (and discovering that they were already taken) I was running a Rifle Shooting Merit Badge Weekend.
I asked one of the Scout to recite the 3 rules of firearms safety. He said, "I already got that signed off!"
The discovery that he must adhere to the all the requirements in order to obtain the merit badge came as quite a shock.
Outraged and indignant, he retorted, "You're Evil!"
Hence the name of the website.
