A Twofer here...
In the October Backpacker magazine there's a short article (& cartoon) about
a Troop who packed lots of trash out of a wilderness area. No
identification of the Troop, just the SMs name which I forgot to write down.
In the other night's Fraiser TV show it was mentioned that Fraiser & his
brother had been in Cubs for a while. They mentioned going on a hike
carrying train cases instead of packs. Personal note here: the first year
or two I went to Camp I used a suitcase, then for a year or two a pack
borrowed from my sister (bright green with a big, gold "G. S." on the flap).
Boy was I happy when I got my own pack (Christmas 1970--Kelty external
frame--and I'm still using it).
Stopped by at the local Hallmark store the other day to check out the Scout
Christmas ornament. Couldn't find it. Have they discontinued the line or
did I miss it?
