Of our eight Philmont-bound Venturers, we have six going on this trip. One adult couldn't get any more days off, since he has so much time off for our Philmont trip, and one youth is on a church mission trip this week.
We'll be teaching basic backpacking techniques, hanging bear bags, etc. We'll be eating some great food (did you expect anything less?), and probably play some cards. Weather looks good (around 60 during the day, in the 30s at night but not freezing). No rain expected till Saturday, by which time I hope to be driving back to the Hither Shore of Lake Monroe.
