BSA Fieldbook, 1976 The following is extracted from the 1976 Boy Scout Fieldbook: When you must hold two pieces of wood together, and you don’t have rope for lashing and there are no nails or wire, you can do it with a dovetail notch. Celebrity club fightwatermelon gaming. The dovetail joint, as you know, is a familiar cabinet makers trick. Recently unearthed a wooden crate with couple of late 40's BSA tent in bought used in the 50's, my green BSA sleeping bag, Cub Scout folder, Boy Scout folder, Plumb BSA hatchet, red cover oblong canteen, cook kit, folding Trioxane stove and various other boyhood treasures. And do course my field guide. The 1967 FB is EXACTLY what a Boy Scout FieldBook should be. The newer one was written by over-educated politically correct academics. The older book conveys the fun and excitement of the wilderness without preaching today's environmentalism and diversity. Boy Scout 'Fieldbooks' FIRST EDITION – 1944-1967 – “Scout Field Book” Retired Chief Scout Executive Dr. West and William Hillcourt were the authors of this edition. The cover artwork was done by Don Ross, artist for the Scout Handbook. The book has more than one thousand photographs and drawings.

The fifth-edition of the revered Fieldbook: Scouting’s Manual of Basic and Advanced Skills for Outdoor Adventure is published by the Boy Scouts of America. It covers hiking, camping, canoeing, mountain travel, ultralight backpacking, wilderness navigation, whitewater kayaking and much more. While Scouts and Scouters will find it indispensable before and during every outing, it’s a great tool for non-Scouts as well.

The Diamond Hitch was many times more prevalent a couple of decades past, and was featured throughout a range of Scout publications. It’s not actually associated with Scout Pioneering, but it’s still an example of nifty rope work. Though there’s not nearly as many packboards in use today, the Diamond Hitch still can serve as the most practical approach to securing a bundle to an object, even in today’s modern world of bungee cords and the like. The following diagram and description was scanned from the ’76 printing of the 1967 Fieldbook.
