Our next monthly campout will be the weekend of November 2-4, a backpacking weekend in the Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area of the Wayne National Forest (near Ironton, Ohio). This trip is open to all Scouts and adults with all levels of backpacking experience. We’ll have a challenging route for experienced backpackers and an easier route for novice backpackers. This will be a great opportunity to see what backpacking is all about if you’ve never done it before. For those lacking equipment, don’t let that stop you! The Troop has a collection of loaner equipment, and we know where else to borrow things if need be.
Permission slips are due October 30. Chas Hertlein can answer any questions, and we’ll be covering backpacking at the next couple of meetings.
