Prepping for Camping merit Badge

This week I am helping Sean get prepared for completing a couple requirements on his camping merit badge.

Step 1 – collect needed back packing equipment

Step 2 – see what you actually don’t need from the pack list. Determine what items can be multipurpose to eliminate more weight.

Step 3 – Test and use light weight stove before you need to demonstrate to instructor

Step 4 – determine best way to put out fire.

Step 5 – finish freeze dried dessert cooking on stove.

Step 6 – return to Back Woods, for more instruction on light weight fuel canister connection

Step 7 – try again

Tip of the Day – ALWAYS home test your equipment before you head out on your trip. It is more fun to royally fail without a full audience.
