The PDF document referenced in this article is named "Cub Scout Hiking.pdf", but the text of the document contains Flag Football worksheet. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Victorgress (talkcontribs) 17:21, March 16, 2010. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)

I have e-mailed the author of the worksheet(s) and asked him for an update, if possible. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 18:46, March 17, 2010 (EDT)

Yes, I agree; this should have been done by now. There is still no Cub Scout Hiking worksheet here. (USScouts.org doesn't have one, either.) Admittedly, this promptly fell off my radar once I contacted Milominderbinder2, who has been our worksheets "guru".

While I usually do not personally make worksheets, I did add this to my personal TO DO list a few days ago, when another user made note of another one still being a problem. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 11:08, February 25, 2011 (EST)

Hiking safety rules

What are the hiking safety rules that the Scout is supposed to explain to his den leader? -Howarthe 03:40, July 21, 2012 (EDT)

Howarthe, that's another good advancement-related question. And, I'm not trying to put you off... seriously; but, again (see: Talk:National Summertime Award#Which pin?) I ask you, please, register at MeritBadge.net (our forums) and ask your advancement-related questions there. I assure you... you will not be disappointed. Thanks, —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 10:42, July 21, 2012 (EDT)
P.S. I went ahead and added the hiking safety rules (from the Cub Scouts 'Academics & Sports Program Guide', Pub. No. 34299 (2010 Edition, 2nd Printing)).
Thanks, Smith. I really just don't want to be a member of ANOTHER forum, but thanks for adding the safety rules. -Howarthe 17:23, July 23, 2012 (EDT)
