    • Our patrols have found that the food prices and selection is better at Market Basket, a New England supermarket chain. I think the only product cheaper at WalMart was Clif bars.  A good lesson about saving time (convenience) and money. Pick one. My $0.02
    • Just wanted to share that I'm using WalMart online grocery shopping for our Pack camping trip this weekend.  Placed the whole order online and I will pick up the whole thing after lunch on Friday.  Many grocery stores have online ordering and it saves a lot of time.  It's also convenient to plan and order from home and calculate things like serving sizes and cost comparisons on the computer.   If I ever am in charge of grocery shopping for the troop, I will teach the Scouts how to use this method. 
    • The answer varies across the scale.  You have some units where the CO's word is law, and you have others where the CO is either virtually non-existent or gives SM complete reign in delivering program as he/she sees fit. Our case is the latter.  Our CO is a CO in paperwork only.
    • I agree. This is kind of a catch-all list because we’d be dealing with a potential wide range of experience levels. A troop of mostly younger Scouts can’t be expected to go backpacking or have lightweight gear on the first trek. A cooler, for example, may be a necessary transition item to get them through a year of “lightweight car camping” before they’re ready to hike everything in on their backs.  Lashing staves are more for practice during meetings; a CO might not like it if we dragged in a bunch of downed saplings and left bark all over the place.
    • Some is not even necessary for the first year. A few perhaps not at all. For example, some of the camping items are often used for car camping and might be "nice to have", but are not necessary.  Lashing staves? I would suggest gathering some from the woods. In my experience they work better than the purchased ones anyway.
