Our first troop meeting of the year will be Thursday September 12, 2013.
Then just two days later on Saturday September 14, 2013 (6:30 AM) we will meet at the church for a backpacking campout to Harriman State Park. We will drive up and park near Tiorati Circle, hike about a mile and a half to the Fingerboard shelter and establish a base camp. Then the troop will hike to the Lemon Squeezer rock formation. The troop has made this trip before and it was very well received by all.
For the campout, plan on eating breakfast before leaving home or bring something to eat in the car. Bring a bag lunch for Saturday as we will eat on the hike from Fingerboard to the Lemon Squeezer. Dinner Saturday needs to be a dehydrated meal or a zero KP one pot meal. In addition to your gear and food make sure to bring enough water for all day Saturday (including water needed for cooking) and the hike out Sunday morning.
Permission Slips are due at the first meeting!
