Oh quit feel so old with all these memories! They STILL use the plastic
wastebasket backpack's at NCAC's Goshen Scout Camps - Camp Bowman (some
other camps at Goshen have converted to dining hall over the years). The
thing that blew me away upon my return after 20 years was seeing the
issuance of stoves & propane for use in cooking those meals -- so much for
the patrol fireman and assistant on the old duty charts...
