Scout parents:

In talking to a number of parents, it seems that a number of you are looking for some gear for yourselves and your scouts, specifically the basics like hiking boots, sleeping mats, sleeping bags, headlamps, water container. etc. Other than the headlamp, the 4 items mentioned are the very basic you and your son need at camping.  My opinion is that the headlamp is a lot better than a flashlight as it frees your hands for doing things.

There are a number of sales going on that I have seen and have purchased, and are still going on. If you are interested, email me or respond back and I will send you the information. I am not a rep for them and just want to pass on the info so you don't go overboard on gear and get the most useful items.

Will be happy to sit down with all interested to go over our collective experiences with the personal equipment choices.
