    Hammocks are great for staying out of the floods coming down mountains in the appalachians. The only scout troop problem is the lack of many trees at the camp sit. 18 scouts 4 trees

    Troop 25 up here in Buford GA has 3 leaders and 2 scouts hanging from the trees, with more in the future. Our next scout event will be a 'DIY Hammock' night where all the scouts will make hammocks for an upcoming camp.

    Troop 636 Elizabeth Co

    I am bringing hanging to troop 636 in Elizabeth Colorado. There was one Eagle Scout who is hanging as well. I went to ITOLS training this last weekend and I could see the envy on the rest of the Old Dogs.....

    Troop 75 Moore OK, I'm the only one that hangs full time. 4 others bring them on backpacking trips just to use as chairs, they carry there tents too. Some day they will learn to ditch the heavy stuff.

    TROOP 636 ELIZABETH COLORADO

    ASM

    I started hanging when I was in scouts over 30 years ago in Alexandria Va. My first hang was in a net style hammock and no tarp. I was not always the sharpest tool in the shed and one time I hung during our annual caving campout which took place in February. I ended up with about 2 inches of snow on my face in the morning.

    Now sleeping in a gathered end DIY hammock. Loving it and nice to wake up in the morning dry and warm without back pain or other pains from trying not to hit the hard ground.

    TriSec from Troop 250, Waltham MA.

    I have one scout in a Hennesey, and one leader in an unknown type. (He didn't make the last trip, but I heard about him.)

    And of course your Loyal TriSec soon to be in a WL Night Owl!
    I prefer to remain an enigma.

    Say guys, as the District Man here, (Training Chairman, SOL District, Boston Minuteman Council) regarding this whole alcohol stove issue?

    I say bah. I'd keep my nose clean if I was going to a Council event or a BSA camp, but with the troop out on their own - go for it.

    Of course, if your Council is a little more hardline than ours, if something goes wrong they could deny the insurance coverage (and that's what the new rules are all about), so take this under advisement.

    I'm the district camping chairman and I'm doing a lightweight/ultralight hammock backpacking presentation at our march roundtable and i have been going rounds about how i present the alky stove "agenda". I think i will inform them of the the BSA "standards" and wait for questions, but i will not debate/question the standards, only give my biased opinion.
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.
