Anyway, he called me back this evening and we chatted about whom you have to talk to to make the connections for a first-ever United Methodist Trek at Philmont. We're hoping for 2010, but who knows? We also chatted about how the St. George Trek is structured, and it sounds really groovy. If we can make the reservation, I know we can do some awesome stuff.
Greg G., a UM Elder from West Virginia, has done several Philmont treks as well as Jamboree chaplaincy. He was sniffing around the same idea at the time I was elected President of NAUMS and began sniffing around the idea from the other end. We may wind up leading different crews for the same experience. That would be groovy, too.
