Hero Packs

Monday, October 25th, 2010

We have been invited to assist in creating Hero Packs along with other Belton Youth organizations and Veterans groups.

We are requested to write letters to youth dependents of military personnel who are currently serving and/or deployed overseas.

We will discuss this at the meeting on 25-OCT-2010.


Leave No Trace (Human Waste)

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Over the next few meetings, we will have sessions on “Leave No Trace” principles.
One topic we will discuss at length in preparation to our high-adventure trip in 2011 is disposal of human waste.

The Leave No Trace Website has some good information on the subject.

There are a few YouTube videos discussing the subject — one of which has some slightly foul language, so please don’t be offended (the video has great information, otherwise):

[Hiking Trip Preparation : Bathroom Considerations While Hiking]

[Camping Gear : Digging Camp Cat Holes]

[Yao Demonstration - Leave No Trace Cat Hole]

[Low Impact Hiking Tips & Techniques : How to Dispose of Human Waste while Hiking]

[Low Impact and No Trace Camping : How to Dispose of Human Waste While Camping]

Bottom line: first adhere to the guidelines in the scout handbook and from Leave No Trace.
