We hiked at CHESLAN preserve in Embreeville, PA. The spring weather cooperated and this is truly a beautiful place to go 365 days a year.
Our group of 5 + dog, walked 5.02 mi on moderate terrain through open rolling fields and woods. All the Philmont participants came with their loaded backpacks.
Great practice for the real thing! Those boots don’t look new anymore.
Next week is the Caledonia State park trip. See you all there. Mrs K.

Mr. Ryder will be offering the Personal Management merit badge starting in December. The work and meetings around this merit badge will be done outside of the regular Troop meetings. The first session will be on in TPH. Please complete requirement #1 prior to 12/14 and bring the attached worksheet to the meeting.
FYI – several scouts started but have not completed this merit badge (Sean B, Will D, Patrick F, Joseph G, Will H, Marek , Shane, and John T) – now would be an excellent time to finish as it is an Eagle Required merit badge.
