Troop 40 Arizona 2014 Trip Packing List

We will be tent camping in the desert and mountains, sleeping on the ground.  A sleeping pad is required to stay warm.  A 20 degree sleeping bag is also required.  A backpack is needed to carry a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, clothes, and 2 qts water.  Please make sure the gear fits in your backpack before we leave.  There are some loaner packs available.

A synthetic fleece is preferred over a cotton sweatshirt for its wicking performance.  Fleece sleep pants are also prefered for cold nights.

All your personal gear must be packed in a single duffle bag.  A compression sack will squeeze down a sleeping bag in half or more (Mr Brounscheidel has 10 military surplus large sacks for $10) Full size pillows are too bulky, leave them home. This bag will be checked and must be <50lbs and smaller than 62 in. (LxWxH).  Your empty backpack will be packed in the trailer Monday night.  The trailer will leave the next day.     A day bag/book bag will be carried on the plane; see below for what to bring in this bag.

We will travel and tour in a full class a uniform.

We have laundry facilities at our disposal on post, and we will use them.  Please don’t bring extra clothes.   

Please mark all belongings (even the skivvies and socks)

A good deal of thought has gone into this list.  If you intend on not bringing something that is not flagged as optional, please consult with Mr. Brounscheidel
