The MTB campout is here! We have five Scouts and three adults headed up to Farish Rec Area for the MTB campout. Conner is purchasing the food for the Scouts, and adults will be responsible for their grub.
We plan to ride four routes on Saturday (2 x 2 miles; 2 x 5miles) and on Sunday we plan to ride from Farish all the way back to the Church for a total ride of 25.1 miles (on Rampart Range Road). Anyone who wants to join us, is more than welcome. Our start time on Sunday, in order to get back by 12noon, will be 9am Boy Scout time-which means very “ish”.
Safety gar required is helmet. Recommended are gloves, eye pro, and any other gear you may want to add (shin/knee/elbow guards, etc.).
The weather this weekend is supposed to rain, so ensure the appropriate gear is packed. Layers! Pack as if we were hiking, just to keep used to that sort of camping. No Patrol boxes, since there are only five scouts, we can cook on mess kits or in the fire.
