Philmont
« on: July 08, 2017, 06:51:55 PM »
Just finished 12 days on the trail at Philmont Scout Ranch. The boys had an awesome time and the dads survived ( ok, we had a great time too).  Covered 89 miles with packs and many more without. Started at 6000 ft of elevation and topped out at 12,441 with many ups and downs in between.



Now we can focus on our trailer camping vacation coming up in August.

Congrats Nathan.  I still have the boots I wore on our Philmont Trek.  Ours wasn't as long but the first 2-3 days were awful.  I think the trek was called "From Purgatory to Hell".  And it was.
