Throwback Thursday on the Trail

Explorer Post 697 at Philmont, June 21, 1997

First day of summer. We built a snowman in the shade below the meadow. Anna (with the long hair reminiscent of Cousin Itt) was our Crew Leader on this, our first high adventure trek.

Well, from Explorers to Venturers and everything in between, this summer will be my 17th high adventure trek or international Scouting trip. I'm going to Sea Base June 10-16, 2014 with our Happy Crew. Then in July, I'll be leading the Tenke Jamboree in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on behalf of the Indiana and North Katanga Annual Conferences of The United Methodist Church.

It's a long, long trail a-winding
