Wow! Two topics relevant to my day in one post.
Did a little scout shopping this morning and:
The New Scout Handbook
Got five copies for various people in our troop. Our council and the
next one over didn't have it, but one of the local commercial BSA
supplier outlets did. It looks great. Sturdy; filled with useful
illustrations: and, color coded so you can actually find things. Well
worth the money which BTW is $7.95. More expensive then the last book
but then again have you bought any pulp paper B&W paperbacks lately.
Book prices have soared recently.
And while I was out, I stopped at Campmor looking for a new messkit and
found, lo and behold, a camper's popcorn popper. It is a metal basket
with a fold-up long handle to hold it over the fire and shake it. It
wasn't Coleman, but was in a look-alike box.
