I’m a first year Scout and this summer my troop went to Camp La-No-Che in Paisley, Fla. I took the Climbing merit badge and soon realized my tennis shoes were not suitable to scale the climbing wall. I left La-No-Che with a partial completion for that badge. I’d like to buy some climbing shoes before I attempt the climb again. Can you recommend good ones?
How can I make my first-aid kit small enough to fit inside a fanny pack but still have all the stuff I need?
I'm going on a camping trip with my troop, but my hunting knife broke. I see a lot of different hunting knives advertised. How do I know which one to buy?
Our family takes a vacation to the beach every summer. I've been boogie-boarding for the past several years, but now I want to try surfing. I know you can rent surfboards, but I want one of my own. Any advice?
My mountain bike is totally off gear. I put it on gear number 4 and it is on number 6. What do I do?
Where is the best place to get a bike?'
I want to get a Olympus SP-500 Ultra Zoom but whatever website that I look at they are always to expensive or I can’t find them.
Ever tried to write in the rain with a wet ballpoint pen? It's nearly impossible -- and that's exactly why there's Inka.
My tent leaks! Water runs through the rainfly! What should I do?
I need a hoodie for our next camp-out, and I was wondering what would be the best options?
This tiny, wrist-mounted 3-megapixel camera is one of the coolest things we've seen.
I have been saving up for a digital camera that I can bring on camp-outs. I have been looking for a while but am not sure what to buy and what I will really need. If I were to buy a camera it would need to be capable of going underwater and capable of falling and taking a beating. I am looking forward to doing more advanced things in Scouts but want to be able to show my family and friends. I have been struggling with this for a while and came to you since I know you will point me in the right direction.
How should I purify my drinking water when I’m on a backpacking trip? What’s the easiest and cheapest way?
This has to be one of the easiest and coolest ways to purify water we’ve seen. The SteriPEN is a high-tech gizmo that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to kill bacteria, viruses, protozoa and other things we can’t pronounce that hide in dirty water and make you sick.
