Scouts like new tarps for heavy weather and light packs


Dave,

Thanks for getting the tarps out so fast. I really appreciate it.

We put them to good use on our troop’s trek this week. We faced some of the rowdiest storms I’ve ever seen in the mountains. The boys LOVED the tarps and have total confidence in them. I don’t think they’ll ever carry a tent again.

Here’s a pic:
