On the Road, Again

Thursday evening, the troop's Philmont 612-N contingent arrived after dark at Wall Doxey State Park in Holly Springs, Mississippi, and settled into their tent camping area. It was a nice space, though the state of Mississippi has apparently not discovered the allure of mountain biking money to supplement the funding of their parks like the mainstay mountain-biking opportunities at Chewacla State Park.

After a pleasant night's sleep and hot pancakes straight off the griddle of the camp stove Friday morning, the crew loaded up in the van for a full day on the road en route to Foss State Park on Foss Lake in western Oklahoma. The crew's route includes crossing over the Mississippi River in Memphis into Arkansas (with the hopes of no razorback sightings).
