Philmont Trekkers...for those that can attend we will be having our second training hike with our packs. We will be meeting at the main entrance at Farrel McWhirter park in the large grassy lawn adjacent to the parking lot on Saturday February 9th. Make sure to pack your packs with approximately 30#'s of gear. Have the ten essentials, plenty of water and snacks and the rest can be dead weight for now in the packs. Dress for the weather. We will be hiking 8 miles round trip and I expect that we'll return around 3:30. The length of the hike will be based on time, weather and how well the scouts are handling the loaded packs. See you then. Contact me if you have any questions.
