A hiking we will go

In preparation of the troop's upcoming backpacking trip on November 23-24, the troop is focusing its next few meeting programs on backpacking tips.

Philmont veterans (left to right) Will, Davis (back) and Andrew
discuss the various gear Scouts should consider for the
troop's upcoming backpacking trip.

This past meeting, Assistant Scoutmaster Davis Baird, Senior Patrol Leader Andrew, and troop Quartermaster William shared tips they acquired during their summer Philmont expedition. The trio offered suggestions regarding footwear, clothing, sleeping bags, and gear -- and the best methods for packing your gear. Other Scouts in attendance offered their own suggestions based on their camping experience as well.
