John Miles said the main goal for his troop of Boy Scouts is to have as many new experiences as possible.
He said the group focuses on exploring new places more than trying to advance in rank.
Miles, 54, joined the Boy Scouts of America when he was 8. Miles worked his way up to Eagle Scout by the time he was 18. To earn his Eagle Scout rank, Miles helped start the Glenn Hilton Trail at Glenn C. Hilton Jr. Memorial Park in 1986, he said.
After becoming an Eagle Scout, Miles was a Boy Scout summer camp counselor for 10 years. He was a scoutmaster for two years when he was around 24 years old, he said.
In 2014, Miles’ oldest son, Davis, now 23, joined the Boy Scouts. Miles started helping with the Cub Scout pack that Davis was in. When Miles’ youngest son, Jackson, 17, joined the Boy Scouts, Miles became a den leader for Jackson’s Cub Scout pack, he said.
