Going solo it is. I've downloaded the first four section but I may not have a chance to listen for a few days.

Chapter 1 intro isn't exactly as written but it has all of the main elements so PL OK. Nice start!

Thanks.
I also uploaded Ch 5, but I should mention something I did.
You know how he includes situations where the boys show their skills, and they can become teaching aids to show how to do things.
In one of the scenes in Ch5, Hal gets frostbite and Pat treats it by rubbing snow on the skin.
I added a "Reader's note" to say that this is no longer the approved method. The Boy Scouts strongly warn against it in their training these days. I didn't want this thought to stick in one of the listener's memories and have them causing damage.

I hope that's not too out-of-bounds. It was hard enough when they put ointment on a burn in one of the earlier books, but I figured if the kits don't contain ointment these days, they won't try to use it.

Keith,
2, 3, and 4 are all PL OK. Oh, that snowball fight sounds as if it would have been grand fun!

5 - no issue with the readers note however there is a repeat at 8:25

6 and 7 are both PL OK.
