BB20 Certification: 20 PEP Badge Bits

To apply, please show you have earned 20 PEP Badge Bits.
:: At least 20 :: Any PEP Badge BB, Any Level :: Oddball, 1 Full Point Equivalent To 1 BB ::

Earners of BB20 Certification are currently entitled to a packet of Sepp Holzer grain to be mailed within the U.S.  If you wish for a packet of 42 grains to be mailed to you, please post saying so to this thread and a staff member will contact you to coordinate details. This is not a forever thing.

Sometimes, PEP events will only be open to people who have earned a minimum number of PEP BB's. One of the numbers I've seen thrown around is BB20.
Current BB20 Event at Wheaton Labs: https://wheaton-labs.com/bb20/

"The Double Trouble!"

For clarity, one need not pursue BB20 Certification on their way to PEP1 Certification.

I pursued these twenty bits for the purity of it all but now I see that I can now obtain Sepp Holzer grains without shady backroom deals and third party couriers in Ireland, which is quite a relief.  Yes please, I would like some.

So, I have earned ten bits. These went into the BB10:

1) Lash something 10' to a vehicle without dying
2) Sweep the Leg
3) Spring Cleaning
4) Make a firestarter from an oily dish
5)  Pee on a Plant
6) Make tea from plants you found laying around
7) First Aid for your First Aid Kit
8) Wash Dishes by hand, then wash your hand
9) Make an egg slide around in a cast iron skillet
10) Stir Fry!

These I submit for BB20:

11) Pollinator gatorade station

12) Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

13) Eat a bunch of plants, but not if you grew them

14) Zip it, pal!

15) Dry out your peppermint

16) Turn a branch into a smaller branch

17) Bake a loaf of bread, and also a backup loaf of bread

18) Make sand soup.  Oh, sorry, that's for a sand badge in soup.

19) Cook rice with fuzzy logic

20) Make a natural medicine journal to help you recover from all the BBs


Staff note (Ash Jackson) :

Congrats on BB20, Rob! Thanks for sharing a few laughs.
