This was taken last night as he was getting ready, this morning, he was in his scout uniform. The 12 boys and 3 adults will take public transportation downtown in order to catch the Amtrak train to Philmont. They will backpack for over a week and then take Amtrak home. His pack was weighing in at ~18 pounds with all his stuff so he will have plenty of room to help carry troop supplies. (I think the boys will be carrying between 25 to 30 pounds each.) I think he's going to have a great time. I can't wait until he is home and can tell me all about it.
I'll continue with our camping trip pictures on Monday... I was just getting to the really exciting part!
