    Just a quick question. I work with Scouts and we are teaching the 10 essentials to them. I have hang tags for LNT that we will be hanging on their packs, is there a hang tag with the 10 essentials listed on it? I have been trying to find one so we could place both on a clip(with @ 25ft of rope) that the boys can hang on their pack as a reminder. If you know of such a hang tag, please let me know.
    The videos I have seen are great, thank you for all the great work your doing.

    I haven’t seen any, but that doesn’t mean there not out there. Thanks for the nice words about the site. We are going all social in the next few weeks. Good luck with the Scouts, have fun.
