My wife has frequenly camped with the troop, but has worked out better since
the kids have grown up and left. (Except now most of are camping is at
district events. She was a MOM.)
This line reminds of a story from about 15 years ago when I was a unit
commissioner. One of my units had a childless ASM and he had recently
married and was taking the wife along on the camping trips. The mothers
were quick to start complaining about this (remember the time frame, we have
come a long way since then).
At one of the committee meetings the Scoutmaster addressed this issue. He
told all the parents that they are welcome to come along on the campouts,
but there is one very importantant rule they hvae to abide by when out
there. HE IS MOM, and will not tolerate any mothering comeing from anywhere
else. None of the mothers ever bothered him after that.
