You bring up an interesting area worthy of additional discussion. I've seen
some units on the trail keep all their scouts together while others allow
the boys string out with some racing ahead and others lagging behind. I've
also seen others allow the boys break into sub groups, i.e. the treks
become a group of sub treks.
So, to the members of the group I ask the question, how does
your unit proceed down the trail; together, strung out, broken up, or?
