Last year our troop purchased enough 4-person Coleman tents to outfit the 25
active boys we had; we gained 28 new boys this year, so now we are looking
into additional tents. We would like to purchase backpacking tents for use
by the older boys, particularly since some are going to a high adventure
camp this summer. There's a lot of expertise on this list, so could I have
some recommendations about what has worked and has not worked for you?
Along those same lines, we are looking at backpacking stoves for the boys.
What are the recommendations on those, particularly with the liquid fuel
versus cartridge debate?
Thanks so much for your help.
