Reminder: Scaling Mt. Washington (Dec 16-18)

Greetings Scouts and Parents;

The boys have picked out a nice challenge for next week’s trip.  They will be doing a fun winter hiking in the White Mountains and tackling Mt. Washington.   The Troop will head up on Friday and stay at Camp Leonard, to get a early start on Saturday.  After hiking, a return to the comfy and warm cabin for dinner, a casual bacony breakfast on Sunday before a return home.

While this is not the first cold weather hike, a reminder that gear is important for this adventure.  Several layers, especially wind protection, heavy gloves and hats to protect you skin.  Scouts will also needed micro spikes and maybe hiking poles as there will probably be need for traction.    We will do a gear review at  the meeting on Wednesday.

  • Meet up: Friday – time to be determined
  • Cost $20
  • Return: Sunday about noon.

Please bring your permission slips and checks to the meeting on Wednesday.

Thanks;

Mr. Valante
