Larry and the group,
The Northern Tier program has a web site at
That site has lots of info about the program, reservation numbers, etc.
My troop took 3 crews to Norther Tier last summer (1999). They run a great
program! I highly recommend it.
Program aside, a big feature of Northern Tier in my mind is that they book
their program a year in advance instead of 2 years in advance as at
Philmont and Sea Base (rumor is that there are still slots for summer
2001). Really helps in troop planning.
I suggest that all troops avoid Northern Tier and continue to fight over
Philmont and Sea Base so that I can go back to Northern Tier anytime my
troop wants too :-)
