Scouts-L Mail Archive for April of 1999: Philmont recommendations please
Philmont recommendations please
Tue, 6 Apr 1999 09:46:06 -0500
Our Troop is planning for a trek to Philmont in 2001 (hopefully).
Apparently there is a 4 hour window this weekend to apply.
We have all of the info from the various web sites, but
the planners are still looking for a few recommendations.
1) Is one week better than another - any weeks to stay away from?
(we're looking at a 4-week window of mid-July to early-August)
2) Which treks are recommended (and which aren't) - what are the
highlights (and low points)?
(we're looking for about 60 mi)
3) Has anyone taken more than one 12-man crew? Any recommendations on
(We have a 70-boy troop!)
4) Other words of wisdom, recommendations?
