10 Mile Hike, Friday 7 Aug

BSA Troop 287 —  August 6, 2015 — Leave a comment


This Friday (7 Aug) Troop 287 will embark on a 10 mile hike on the Santa Fe Trail.  This is a hike suitable for all scouts!  We’ll meet at WUMC at 8 am and return about 1 to 2 pm.  Wear sturdy shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen, water, and a lunch in a day pack.  During the hike we will learn how to treat water, use trail stoves, build a fire using alternate methods (no matches), and practice signalling techniques.  For those scouts working on the cooking merit badge, you need to put together your own trail lunch and be prepared to discuss the foods you selected and how you prepared it.  For scouts working on the wilderness survival merit badge, please bring your personal survival kit and be prepared to discuss the contents and how to use the items in a survival situation (use the internet as a resource to find items to include).  I’m also looking for another adult driver/hiker to go on this trip.  Please e-mail me at jonu_1999@yahoo.com, if you (scout or adult) are going on this adventure so I can plan accordingly.  See you Friday!
