I hate to be a rumor monger, but here goes.
One of the adults in my troop has a father-in-law who is a close friend
to an EXTREMELY high ranking member of the Philmont staff.
The rumor is that Philmont may gain control of tens of thousands of
additional acreage to the north that is now presently private land.
I repeat this is something I've heard third hand through the grapevine.
My own knowledge of the area would suggest possibly that this might be
Chase Ranch. National is desparetly trying to increase the capacity of
Philmont due to the record numbers seeking reservations these past few years.
I repeat, this is only a rumor.
