Backpacking Shakedown

posted Jul 20, 2014, 9:42 AM by Scout Masters
Half the boys going to Philmont this summer had a "Shakedown" backpacking trip in June.  The boys backpacked a total of 13 miles, 3 on Friday night and 10 on Saturday.  The trek was from Palmyra to Whitewater.  The purpose of the hike was to test the equipment being used at Philmont, and to get the boys in shape.  2 shorter hikes were done in March and April.  Click here to see more photos.
