During a recent hiking/camping weekend I was sharing some memories
with friends about my Philmont trek in 1978. Of course hiking and
backpacking equipment has changed somewhat over the years, and the
questions were raised. . . What are the more common types of packs,
hiking shoes/boots, tents, and sleeping bags used by Philmont contin-
gencies in the '90's. Are the Philmont campers "trending" toward the
high-tech, internal frame packs, lightweight hiking boots, etc.
Sorry to break the monotony of the usual controversial topics on the
list. I just had to throw in something to get the OUTING back in our
SCOUTING list. later . . .
