    hello, I am looking for a book and wondering if you may have heard of it. My father said that one of his favorite books when he was little was about some boyscouts and their adventures. He said that the boyscouts had a donkey that ate dynamite and the scouts were worried about the donkey blowing up. he thinks that the title has something to do with T bone patrol. Do you know this book, author and or title? I would like to find the book for him. Thanks, Laura
