Over the years I have found several books very useful in my scouting endeavors. Possibly you have a book or a web site that would help keep the Outing in Scouting.

Mountaineering Freedom of The Hills
BSA Fieldbook

I have the BSA Fieldbook, it's great!

my old teacher/Eagle Scout/retired sergeant has that army survival guide and used it on a class backpacking trip(this was before I was a scout), and it was really useful. the only thing I remember from it is how to get water in the desert, but he highly recommended it.

RW dont you just hate them little smart kids :lol: :lol:

Diamond you have the makings of a good adult leader when you get old enough. with comments like that and one of the resourses that most people forget about that was a good comeback.

now dont forget to add to the list of books

the BSA handbook

camping& wilderness survival
(the ultimate outdoors book) by Paul Tawrell


we have used both of these above mentioned books with great results.

just remember that these kids are the leaders of tommorow and we need to pat them little puppies on the back every now and then.

so here it goes.

PAT PAT PAT SNAP quit biting you little snotty nosed kids :D :lol: :D :lol: :shock:

seriously I would like to thank the kids of today for the good things they will do tommorrow.

THANK YOU

hey, thanks.

just to clear up something, I don't usually have a snotty nose(I have allergies right now, what are the odds of that!), and I don't bite(usually, unless I meet a really bad adult leader :twisted: )

Great Interaction, I enjoy hearing a scouts perspective. I only hope it helps me to be a better leader.
