Troop, remember we do not have a meeting this week, Wednesday, 4/8.
We will be have a 20 mile hike this weekend. For many of the scouts this will complete the hiking requirements for the MB.
We will be hiking from Mount Vernon to Roosevelt Island.
We will gather at the Scout Shed at 7amand leave shortly after. We will drive to Mount Vernon and drop off the group. Some of the Adults will reposition the cars at Roosevelt Island and meet back up with the group.
All Philmont scouts should join us on the hike if they are in town.
All hikers will be carrying light day packs and plenty of water.
We will pick a restaurant along the way to stop for lunch, like we did on Zoo hike, suggestions are welcome. Scouts will need to bring $10 to cover their part of lunch.
If we assume 3 mile an hour, the hike will take 7 hours. Throw in lunch, transportation there and back, and extra hike time we are talking about 10 hours, that puts us back at 5pm.
The weather should be great for this hike and we will see a good part of the Washington water front.
