. . . discussing packing and hiking at our Scout Troop meeting. Our Troop Guide, a 13-year-old Star Scout, had given a presentation on packing a backpack for camp.

Well, he didn't know what that was for. Neither did the Scout nor the Assistant Scoutmaster standing nearby. So I told them.
Then I wandered off to find Mitch, who went backpacking with us at Cumberland Gap last year, and I said these important words:
I'm a hoopy frood who knows where his trowel's at.
