Hi John and fellow scouters -
Our troop uses the BSA Cookkits. We usually buy them from the Council after
each Jambo. The measuring cups are often "lost" by the boys, but otherwise
they are generally pretty sturdy. Because we just had a Jambo, we bought a
few .... mostly because we needed more! The only set we "retired" was the
one which was *not* like the others (cook set #1, yes they are all
We camp year round, and have tents as well as cook sets from the 1983(?)
Jambo still serviceable and in use .... and yes, that does make them older
than the younger scouts who are using them/sleeping in them!

criticize him and he gets mad at you, you're a mile away and he doesn't
have his shoes.
