Doing some real camping this weekend

My Scout troop is doing a backpack overnight on the Appalachian Trail from Tuxedo, NY to Greenwood Lake, NY (about 13 miles).

The first hill we go up is called 'Agony Grind' which is pretty much a cliff face. The rest of the first days' 9.9 miles is up and down, up and down.

Will spend Saturday night in my trusty tent thinking about the Sleepnumber bed I have in my Winnebago!

We are going to Philmont, NM in 2011 and this is our first training hike.

RVThere, Congratulations! We need more folks like you to carry Scouting forward. I'm sure that you and the Scouts will have a good time on the hike. One of our Admins here Hitchhiker was a Scoutmaster for quite a few years.

Hey RVThere,

Best of luck to you and the Scouts! 2 years ago my son did they NJ part by himself friends chickened out,LOL! He went from NY to Pa! I was away or I would have went with him! He talks about wanting to be a through hiker, I hope he gets the chance one day! If you have not already done it you should watch the movies Trek & Southbounders they are about hiking the AT!

Make sure you have strong legs My son has done it but that was in the early 90's. I took a group to sea base.

I was a Scout as a kid, and a Scoutmaster of a "Special Needs" troop at one point (talk about some hard working kids!!). In recent years we have done one "campout" a year with our grandson's Cub Pack (in our MH). This year he is a Boy Scout and his dad is the Scoutmaster ...they invited us along but there isn't an RV hookup within 20-30 miles of their location so we decide to pass ...RHIP, and age too . Enjoy the "Agony" ...lots of great memories to be made there...
