To those Scouts and Leaders going on the Maine/Appalachian Trial High Adventure in the next few weeks, we will be having a shakedown this Thursday, July 12th, 2012 at the Church. Please bring your packs with everything you need for the 40 miles trek and hike up Katahdin. Mr. Houge will be driving the packs up this week so we don’t have to worry about Baggage fees on the airline.
Follow this link that has suggestions for backpacking at Philmont. While we won’t be doing something as physically challenging as Philmont, still a good page to look at in deciding what to/what not to bring on the hike.
