My son just showed me an article in the April 2011 Boy's life magazine on ultralight backpacking. Good job to all involved! Looks like it had some Backpacking light influence (page 41).

Ken, my son and I were part of that trip. Yes, it was a Montana BSA adventure sponsored by BackpackingLight. The trek was fantastic. We hiked for a week in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Montana BSA has partnered with Boone and Crockett to operate MOHAB. You can work with the great folks at MOHAB to build an adventure just like we did for your own Scout troop.

And I have to plug Backpacking Light's upcoming training for BSA leaders. This course will help you develop the plan, the skills, and the confidence to help your boys take a trip like that featured in Boys Life.

Updated on 12/10/2011 -- Backpacking Light will deliver Scout leader training again in 2012. The course will be offered twice in 2012. Don't miss it!
