I just got a chance to tryout my new ULTIMATE PACK SHOVEL! I am
completely unassociated with Venturing Crew 22, but I found their
fundraiser offer looking for Philmont information. I bought one for
$21.24. It arrived a couple of weeks ago. It looked OK, but I needed
time to test it. I took my boys out camping twice and it survived both
trips. My boys say that this aircraft aluminum shovel fails the hammer
test, big rock pound stakes better, but they liked it in every other
way. They split
kindling, swatted flies and made it ping like any good tuning fork. I,
on the other hand, dug with it, or at least shoveled my cobbler coals
and did other chores I use a small light shovel for.
The shovel is light, one piece, fits very nicely in my hand and works.
It is very well constructed. I would rather have a handful of these in
my Troop than old E-Tools.
Consider it, and help this crew to Philmont or what ever they are doing
