The Philmont phone reservation system will be active for only four hours (10 a.m.
- 2 p.m. Central Daylight Time). Typically, Philmont fills up in less than an
hour and then you are offered a place on the waiting list.
The last time I attempted to book a Sea Base adventure, I spent four
hours on the phone and never got through. I'll never do that again as there are
excellent council run programs similar to the Sea Base that don't require spending
an extensive time trying to get through by phone.
