Someone mentioned to me last night that the Auto Mechanics MB book still
talks about points and distributors and doesn't cover fuel injection and
the mysterious "Engine Control Module".

Also, for winter camping, you should be able to find the Okpik winter
camping book in your local scout store. This covers winter camping in
much more complete detail. There's one other book we use that is
probably not in the scout store, but surely can be ordered from Amazon
or someplace similar. The name and author escape me for the moment, but
if no-one else brings it up I'll try to get it by Friday.
Another thing to look through - we've got a section on our web site that
goes over some winter camping tips, geared more towards the practical
things that have worked for us over the years.
Have fun in the Great White North :>)
