I hope you are all doing some hiking these days. We’ll be in New Mexico in less than 5 months.
Our next steps are very important. First, we need to divide ourselves into to two treks. Second, we need to select our hiking itineraries.
I want to meet at 8pm on Monday March 21st at the scout house to make those decisions.
Attached please find one of two important documents that will help us select our itineraries.
The second document you will need can be found on line at http://scouting.org/filestore/philmont/camping/2011itinerary/2011ItineraryGuide.pdf
There are several factors to consider including, activities at the various campsites, length of the hike, difficulty of the hike.
Traditionally troop 355 has selected hikes that include the Tooth of Time, Philmont’s signature peak.
Therefore I recommend that we choose from on of the following treks; #4, #5, #8, #10, #11, #14, #15, #16, #17, #18, #19, #21, but be can consider any of the other itineraries as well.
Please review these documents and come prepared to express you opinion and vote.
If you can not attend and want you vote counted please send me an email with your top five choices in order of preference.
Philmont will begin accepting requests for itineraries at 8am on Monday April 5th. I intend to be making our request at that time to maximize the changes that we will hike where we want.
