There is continued discussion on the liquid fuel issue. I have been in the
process of typing and drawing in our troops solid and liquid fuels policies,
rules, training-program, and "chit" for general use as a training tool
for anyone who cares to use it (non-commercialy). BSA's chemical fuel
policies are not hard to understand and DO permit and infact seem to be
moving toward encouraging (Read the Boy Scout Handbook) the use of low
impact chemical stove cooking. As for local council prohibitions, If
your concil prohibits the use of liquid fuels, it is time for YOU to get
them to change it. Properly used chemical fuel stoves are less dangerous
to ones health than the best maintained wood fire not built in a stove and
are orders of magnitude less damaging and hazardous to the camp environment.
I am now about 75% of the way through typing in our program and will post
it to the archives and to anyone who desires it as soon as I am finished.
It is taking longer to complete it than I thought it would. But then
you have to work for a living and be with your family and too.
Any way, It's comming soon.
Yours in Scouting. Yours in Service. Westmoreland Fayette Council
