Meet the Boy Scout with all 134 merit badges

WINNSBORO, SC (WIS) -

Logan Robinson is going to need a bigger sash. He's come a long way in 10 years. Back then he was just a 7-year-old Cub Scout who enjoyed carving polar bears out of bars of soap.

"For a 7-year old to have a knife and be carving something, it was awesome," said Robinson. "I was hooked right away."

Robinson achieved his Eagle Scout rank by the age of 13. Most scouts quit when they hit Eagle. Robinson was just getting started.

"If I didn't have something to focus on, I was just going to fizzle out," said Robinson.

So Troop 49 scoutmaster Jimmie Joyner gave Robinson a challenge: earn every single badge available -- all 134.

"I've heard there have only been about 180-200 boys who've earned every badge out of the millions of scouts," said Joyner.

Robinson had many weekends spent at scouting camps earning a few badges at a time, but he got there. Everything from dentistry to tracking and bugling, which was a pain.

"You have to learn I believe it's 13 different bugle calls, and I had absolutely no musical experience," said Robinson.

Those experiences that made the 2 1/2-year journey worth it.

"I mean I've gotten to see F-35's being built in person," said Robinson, "who gets to do that?"

He hopes many more will. Part of the fun is showing off the sash to younger scouts and hopefully inspire them.

Just don't ask for too much detail about the nuclear science patch.

"I remember doing it," said Robinson. "Every little aspect of it? Ehh."
