Specially, Mark, the Pinewood Pack Frame was one pages 192-93, the Trail
Pack on pp. 194-95, the Hike Sack on pp 196-99 and the shelter half tent is
found on pp. 200-205 of the 1968 printing of the Patrol Leaders' Handbook.
It's good stuff, especially when you have some Scouts that say "I can't
afford Scouting...it costs too much!"
