I got a letter from Australia today. It was from the South Pacific Division Honours Committee. I’m pretty sure I wrote about my contact with them last summer. They have been going through the process of reviewing every Pathfinder honor and re-doing the documentation on them. During that process, they came across the Wikibook project I’ve been working on for the past three years. They basically adopted my answers to their Wattles honor, and in the letter, they included the patch and declared that I had earned the honor! How cool is that? Here’s the letter:

Wow. This is something that I find very exciting. I was not expecting to get the Wattles honor for quite some time, thinking that I would have to take a trip to Australia to meet the last requirement. The “Law of Equivalency” means that if a Pathfinder cannot meet a given requirement, something requiring equivalent effort can be substituted. I will admit that coming up with the answers to this honor DID require a lot of effort, more than most of the others in fact. So it’s fair that they’ve awarded me the patch. Also, they certainly have the authority to do that!

I will sew this patch to the front of my sash, near the top.
