    15 Essentials for a Forest Hike

    Understood. But you just never know what's going to happen, You also don't know if someone might run out (or spill theirs).

    The Lost Art of the Tarp....

    LOL that I do not sir, but at this cost I am ok with ditching to buy another if need be. So far these poles have lasted 4 campouts and in two of those campouts there were some pretty good winds.

    The Lost Art of the Tarp....

    I got frustrated with popups, one because of their price and two because of their life. So I started thinking about "back in the day" lol you can still see the small popup but the huge tarp was a life saver this particular weekend because it rained all weekend. NOW I have tested other alternatives which are much lighter than the (pioneering pole) you see in this pic. Basspro has two type of telescoping poles and actually the cheaper one is better. These SUCK https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/texsport-adjustable-tent-pole-model-14092 These are GREAT https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/cabelas-adjustable-height-tent-poles

    15 Essentials for a Forest Hike

    My opinion only. 3 liters minimum (I have an Osprey Bladder in my pack, and I always have an extra nalgene bottle full as well. My headlamp always stays in my pack.....just in case

    Does your pack WELCOME newcomers?

    I always do my welcoming at Parent Orientations. If a parent is serious and they sign their child up most of the time I can sniff them out, this past year i had 3 come up to me before I even ask and said they wanted to help. I have been very fortunate the past 2 years in the pack.

    possible fee increase coming

    We (Council Exec) sent out our email Last Week. I was glad to see that it wasn't 100 and that the volunteers (Scouters) fee's didn't raise.
