I’ve learnt a huge amount in the past month  or so when I first started down this road. Now it gets hard and I need to be better organised. I won't be able to do PEP1, but I would like to get a whole bunch of badges so I can learn more and help out with approvals. I  really need to reread the requirements at least three times - my rejected level is too high and down to my own stupidity and forgetting to take photos at critical stages, like in the carpark of Lowes with a ten foot plank lashed to my bike.

The more I work on these, the more I’m amazed at the amount of work that has gone into creating the tasks. Awesome job. Thank you.

I’d like to level up to BB60 and here are my sixty submissions:

I'm almost at 60 BBs. It's hard to find which ones I can still do (possible and useful here for me). So I'm 'lurking' this thread to see which BBs others did.

Hi Inge, looking through your completed BBs, it seems like there may be some opportunities in roundwood woodworking (mallets), foraging (seedballs), natural medicine, animal care, nest and food prep.  Good luck!

If BB60 was your only goal, you could do the whole thing in the Textiles aspect.

You can also look at straw BBs as they count towards BB60.
I completed quite a few straw BBs even before I completed the corresponding sand badge.
When my goal was an air badge in every aspect, I completed a straw BB as my first in Natural Building.

Thank you all! I could do everything in Textiles, I'm well into the Straw BBs there now. But then I won't learn much new skills (I'm -partly- educated to become a teacher in textile crafts). If getting the BBs is more like a challenge I feel more 'sense of accomplishment'. So I think of wood working, community building, and the others Mike mentions

Inge, I just looked at your public profile and your merit badge info and it looks like you have earned over 60 BBs.

All levels of BB count toward the BB## badges and every oddball point counts as one BB.

Thank you Opalyn. I never knew about the Oddball points counting each for one BB. I counted each Oddball thing I did as one BB. But I know I had more points there. So then you're right and I have earned over 60 BBs!

Hey all you BB60 folks!  If you would like, feel free to post a little resume (or CV) in the following thread so that as Otises are looking for PEPpers, they can see you.  If you're into that sort of thing...

The BB10/20/40/60 & PEP badges have to be manually granted by moderators at this point. So, if you notice that you got one certified, but the badge isn't showing up, just push the "report" button on the post and ask a moderator to manually grant you the badge!
