Touch a Truck – April 30, 2017 

Touch a truck

Serving North Carolina Children's Hospital and Troop 39 since 2008.



Nov 10

Back in 2013, Nate FitzSimons went to the BSA National Jamboree.  He came back with a camp bucket!  I liked the idea and bought two – one for me and one for TomTom.  I take mine on nearly every camping trip I go on (unless I am backpacking).

The bucket is a regular 5 gallon bucket and a Gamma Seal lid.  These are great simple ways to store your gear at camp:

  • portable
  • lightweight
  • water and air tight
  • doubles as a camp seat
  • colourful combinations

What you need:

  • 5 gallon bucket (about $3 from Lowes or Home Depot)
  • Gamma seal lid (about $7-10 available from Lowes, online or HomeDepot)

You can also make a padded seat cushion that you can keep in the bucket when not using the bucket as a seat!  Also, its great for your sticker collection and you can look back at all teh great outings you have been on!
