    I remember when I was in scouts things where actually more challenging. I was sitting in on a meeting with one of my younger cousins and they were talking about camping. They were bringing things like camps stoves, a fold up toilet, and a big Tupperware bin loaded with food. I don't know about the rest of yall but when I went camping in scouts you cooked food over a fire, took a dump in a hole you had to dig, and you wanted it you had to bring it with you on your back. Kids have it way to easy now a days, we did wilderness survival for a week with nothing but a knife and a small emergency ration. If you where lucky you got a lighter or a small thing of matches. What ever happened to challenging kids, now it's pretty much living at home with dirt floors.

    Here in AZ were not allowed to use a fire during the summer, you must use some kind of stove. If they catch you with a fire (or even smoking outside your car) when your camping, be prepared to pay some BIG fines.... Seems a few idots a year set the desert on fire......
