Maybe I just being a fuddy duddy, but I think that we should be *setting the
example*. If the boys are encouraged to use a backpack then so should we.
If a 5-gallon pail is exceptable for one the it should be exceplable for all.
In an ideal situation the Scouts should emulate there leaders. Do as you
would like for them to do.
