Sorry--I should have said that it's easier to get 1 parent to fill in than
two, neither of whom will have been involved in planning the outing. We
once almost had to cancel a high adventure because my leave from work was
canceled just before we left due to a co-worker's emergency surgery.
This is why I try for at least *3* leaders for an outing.
