      Wouldn't have made a difference. Scoutmaster *specific* training is
      leadership training, not how to navigate using a map and compass. Intro to
      Outdoor Leadership Skills (OLS) has roughly 80 minutes allotted to "Finding
      Your Way - Map and Compass Reading". While not all-encompassing (pardon the
      pun) by any means, even that minimal training should provide the know-how to
      at least locate defining geography and march in a particular general
      direction.



      Another question about this news story: Where was the 2-deep leadership?



      Lots of unanswered questions about this story (e.g. had the SM actually
      attended training, was he a brand new SM, is the news story reporting this
      correctly or was the adult in question actually one of a myriad number of
      ASM's in that Troop, where was the 2-deep leadership, etc.).



      Not sure a single example is indicative of the whole. If my son were hiking
      I'd still rather he was with BSA trained adults as opposed to not.
