Have you been to any of the other high adventure bases. Philmont is great
but I think a lot of the people who go there do so because of tradition.
They don't try anywhere else so don't know what other wonderful places there
are. High Adventure outings and Jamborees are two different things. I would
have difficulty choosing one over the other. Fortunately, Jamborees don't
happen every year.
