If you enjoy backpacking - and you're not going to Philmont this summer - here's a trip you may enjoy!
I am organizing - if we have interest - a trip on a section of the Appalachian Trail in August for a few days likely starting Wednesday, August 2nd (exact timing TBD). We may have some flexibility on the dates depending on interest and availability.
As you probably know, the Appalachian Trail is a 2,160 mile long footpath that runs from Maine to Georgia - including sections close to us in Maryland and Pennsylvania. No age limits, but we'd have mandatory pre-hikes and prep sessions beforehand. We'd likely be able to make substantial progress towards the Hiking Merit Badge. This would also as I understand it qualify as a troop HIgh Adventure.
Still plenty of room for scouts and adults! Please let Mr. Barringer know! This is a fun and doable trip that's easier to fit in a schedule than many of the other summer activities. A great opportunity!
