    • That makes good sense! Thanks Barry! My state, well usually, confusion and denial but I'm located in Mass
    • The 35# limit would stop me. Of course the goal is to stay below that weight, but that would be an easy weight to bust. There are all kinds of situations that could force sharing the load of a crew member. Spend some time on Craigslist. What state are you located? Barry
    • Like a lot of things in scouting, it's often a matter of opportunity. When I was a scout, my troop was chartered by a school PTA. The CO didn't care about religious emblems and nobody in the troop really talked them up. Some scouts kind of sort of knew they were out there, but I don't recall a single one of my friends earning one. My son's troop is chartered by a catholic church. The COR cares a lot about religion and duty to God. The CC and SM (and about 50% of the adult leadership corps) are members of the chartering parish. As a result, not a year goes by that an adult doesn't step forward and offer to lead a religious emblems class. My son earned his religious emblem in the troop. So did a lot of his friends.  The difference is simply opportunity.  If the religious emblems are important to the scouts in a troop and to the adult leadership, they will happen.
    • Yeah, when I was a young strapping lad, I could diamond hitch just about anything to a WWII (maybe Korean War) pack frame our Troop had and carry way too much But those days are gone and I'm expecting Vitamin I (despite conditioning before going) will be my best friend on this trek
    • And I'm fretting over the Alps seams once again letting loose
