Those of us who have experience providing a program of Scout Pioneering, and who are familiar with the edition of the Pioneering Merit Badge Pamphlet written by the legendary Adolph Peschke, will have no difficulty relating to why there are repeated references and allusions to the 1993, 1998 edition in this website, with its attention to detail, and when it comes to providing explanations that are helpful and comprehensive.
In the interest of accuracy, the recent 2006 edition has undergone many necessary revisions. There’s a website corresponding to the newest edition, and the post: What Pioneering Merit Badge SHOULD Be! is written from the author’s personal perspective.
In the interest of providing more and more Scouts with worthwhile pioneering experiences, and as an aid to those Scouters who are serious in making these experiences available to our youth, this website features specific text and drawings from Adolph Peschke’s edition.
What follows are links to posts containing the text and many of the drawings from the 1993, 1998 pamphlet:
ROPE FOR PIONEERING AND CAMP USE
ROUNDTURN WITH TWO HALF HITCHES
JAPANESE MARK II SQUARE LASHING
14′ DOUBLE LADDER SIGNAL TOWER
Note: This website’s purpose is to share the joys and benefits of Pioneering and is not intended to serve as a direct aid in earning the Pioneering Merit Badge. But, for those interested, here is a link to the current requirements for the badge.
