This summer I'm training for a four-day backpacking trek with my son's Boy Scout Troop. We will be covering a portion of Wisconsin's Ice Age Trail, and will be 'packing-in', meaning we will carry all of the supplies we will need on our backs. This trip is considered a High Adventure in the Scouting world, and I'm really looking forward to the trip.
