- Apr 22, 2008Hey, Ralph-
Rosaleen here, again.
Just take a look at the Guide to Safe Scouting as you make plans for you
Troop. Then weigh that info against what you choose to do. If you stay
within the guidelnes, file the trip paperwork, and then have an accident,
you can use the BSA's insurance. No paperwork, insurance can be denied.
Same for not following the Guide. After the movie, Rambo, came out, my son
wanted one of the big knives with the saw, etc., inside. He was a pretty
responsible kid, so we got him one. The we found out they weren't allowed
for Scout outings. Now I wouldn't carry it because it is too heavy.

For scouts to earn their Totin' Chip they have to be able to feed and
care for axes, hatchets, saws, and, folding knives. The only thing I
know that the scouts seriously frown on are fixed blade knives. The
reason being is that they are harder to secure. Not knowing what type
of trail improvement we will have to do we will most likely carry all
3 items. Be Prepared right?? I was just tbrainstorming on a way to
cut down weight. One of those kukri style machetes wood be nice. I
have tried the woodsman pal and it is sweet!!
