Mark- I don't see your EMail address-so I'm sending this to the list. If it
were I, I wouldn't use the 'for Dummies(tm)' title. I don't think you want
to imply that your audience are dummies :-)
Personally, I'm turned off by all the 'for Dummies(tm)' books you see in
Waldenbooks or Barnes & Noble's. Camping 101 would imply a course, of
sorts, at an entry level. I think it's a good idea to have some
introduction to such an important part of Scouting- that you want them to
enjoy it as much as we do(did). Don't you envy these young men and women
who are about to experience the joys(and downside- mud,rain,cold,etc :-) )
of camping? Who doesn't still have fond memories.....?
Best of luck to you.
