Thanks for posting your "Christmas list"--it's great now that both my sons
are in Scouting--we can actually ask grandparents for USEFUL things. A few
1. This can be a SCOUTER's Xmas list as well. That 30 yr. old sleeping bag
I had as a Scout in Texas doesn't work too well to keep me warm in Missouri!
2. If your son is the "Scout who has everything" (my oldest is getting
there), consider asking grandpa, grandma (or whomever) to give a week of
camp as a Xmas present (or birthday present). #1 son wants to go to 2 wks.
of summer camp plus a high adventure trip, and he knows Mom and Dad won't
pay for the whole thing!!!
3. Are you serious about backpack/camping stoves for Webs/new Scouts?
Sounds a bit dangerous to me. In our council, Scouts can only use these
under the CLOSE supervision of a TRAINED adult. In our troop, only the
adults may bring stoves along.
