Reminder: Lincoln Woods Backpacking (Nov 19/20)

Greetings Scouters and Parents;

This weekend trip will be a nice hike along the Pemigewasset River.   The boys will be doing long hike out to the AT trail and looping back on the other side of the river.   In all, the loop trail will be about 20 miles.  Off trail, low impact camping is the goal for this adventure.   Right now, the weather looks like a mix of Warm, Cold, Freezing and Rain – a typical scout camping weekend.

Scouts should remember pack essentials for this long hike and plan for the weather.  Consider the necessary layers(wicking, warmth, weather), hats, gloves, your 10 and sturdy boots.  

Logistics:

  • Meet at the Church Saturday Morning @ 7:00 sharp.   We would like to be on the trail by 10 as it will be a long day and it gets dark early.
  • The troop should return late day on Sunday
  • The cost of trip:  $25
  • Chef Sam will be grub master and cook for the troop – only compliments.

Please bring Permission Slips and checks to the Meeting on Wednesday.

Thanks;

Mr. Valante
