Re Chuckwagons. My boyhood troop had one and it was wonderful. The
meeting before each campout we made sure our patrol's equipment was set.
If we didn't, we might end up short at the campout. Each patrol had a
designated space in the trailer and it worked well. The church provided
garage storage and several of the leaders could tow it.
The down side was that we tended to "car camp" rather doing such things
as backpacking. We finally decided that at least one fall and one spring
trip would be "carry it in" campouts. Before long, we were using the
trailer for less than half of the campouts each year. That's the up side!
