Just a Quick Intro

My name is Marcia. I am an Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 132, Harlingen,
TX. I have been in the Scouting program for eight years...Webelo Leader,
Asst. Cubmaster, Advancement Chairman, and now Asst. Scoutmaster. I am
currently starting up a Venture Patrol within the Troop to get the older boys
involved in more advance scouting skills. It should be a great program. So
far this Scouts-L has helped tremendously. Right now I am trying to get
climatized to the Rio Grande Valley. It is a little bit hotter here than
Kansas City...and I'm learning to camp with the alligators, trantulas and
rattlesnakes. (Leaders should earn an award for such a feat!)
I do have a couple of questions that someone might be able to help me with. I
am used to cold weather camping. Now its time for hot weather camping. In
looking at the tents (Eureka), they outline their use for 3 season, etc.
What do they consider the three season or two season?? Is the 4th
season...snow on roof?? These should be 3-man tents for the Scouts (2 man
tents are a tight squeeze sometimes).
How about a great sleeping bag that can handle warm to about 35 degree
weather? Washable also...
