Outdoor Activity Tracking Workbook

For Scouts and Scouters wishing to track advancements for various activities related to camping, hiking, and backpacking, I have a created a tracking workbook in Excel that cross-references the advancements.

Backpacking Gear List Planner & Weight Calculator

For Scouts and Scouters planning their gear loads for the next backpacking trip, 99boulders.com has created this great gear list planning and weight calculator. I have added caveats for Scouts BSA weights based on Philmont guidelines. I do not have an offline version at this time so if you download the spreadsheet you will receive calculation errors. This is planned for a future version.

Note that you must have a Google account to input values as this is a Google Sheets-integrated worksheet. If you do not have a Google account, you can create one for free or contact a Troop leader who can work with you to input the values.
