  • Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac Information Center
    Poison ivy is a harmful vine or shrub in the cashew family. It grows plentifully in parts of the United States and southern Canada. Poison ivy usually grows as a vine twining on tree trunks or straggling over the ground. But the plant often forms upright bushes if it has no support to climb upon. Species related to poison ivy include poison oak, which grows in the Pacific Northwest and nearby regions of Canada, and poison sumac, which grows in the Eastern United States. Poison oak and poison sumac both are shrubs. The tissues of all these plants contain a poisonous oil somewhat like carbolic acid. This oil is extremely irritating to the skin. It may be brushed onto the clothing or skin of people coming in contact with the plants.

  • Camping Equipment - Campmor
    Here are a few more deals you may want to checkout at CAMPMOR.

    Kelty Coyote Backpack 4750, No 88035. My son, Tom and Daniel Lysy both have this pack and like it. The shoulder straps adjusts from 13" - 20" which will fit most boys as they grow. DO NOT BUY ANY BACKPACK SITE UNSEEN. It is costly to have to return this item. Checkout the pack at Dick's Sporting Good or my favorite REI to make sure it will fit. I paid $125 plus tax for Tom's. It is on sale at Campmor for $90 plus $8 shipping/ no tax.

    For older scouts the catalog also lists another Kelty pack on sale, Red Cloud 5600, No 88032-P. Be sure to try this pack locally before ordering.

    Kelty makes good to better grade products that carry a lifetime warranty. I have returned a 20-year old tent to them for repairs without any problems.

    Princeton Tec Blast Flashlight, No 55843-P Color Neon Green - I have this flashlight (color Granite), it is light weight and durable. For $5 it is a good buy. Due to shipping costs, consider adding this if you are placing a larger order.

    Do not wait too long. Both items are listed in catalog "While Supplies Last".
