Backpacking trip to Lower Boulder Lake in the Eagle Nest wilderness area by Silverthorne on Aug 25 and 26th.

This hike is for both the beginner backpacker and for any scout that wants to go. Families are welcome. The 2.7 mile hike is rated easy to moderate. We will leave the Park and Ride by McDonald’s off of Lincoln and Jordon at 8:00, so be there by 7:45. If any parents can drive, please indicate it the email. If you can take a boy or two, let me know that as well.

To prepare the scouts new to backpacking for this trip, There will be a Backpacking 101 class on Tue, August 14th at 6:30. We’ll cover how to pack, the use of a light weight stove, cooking, purifying water, safety and other “101″ items. Bring your stove and water purifier if you have one.

The next troop meeting after that, Aug 21, we will have a breakout for all scouts going. At this meeting, we will collect BSA Medical forms and Activity forms. Tent buddies will also be determined. For the new scouts and those new to backpacking, please bring your packed backpack as if you were leaving that night. We will use this time for review.

Camping:

We will be camping 2 nights (location still being determined) so please bring your normal overnight gear which includes but is not limited to: tent, sleeping bag, toiletry items and bug spray, etc. If you do not wish to camp both nights you are still welcome to come hike with us on Saturday, however, you will need to make your own ride arrangements. The last mile or so up to the trail head requires a higher clearance SUV, but not 4wheel drive.

How to Prepare:

-Get in shape! I know the hike is just around the corner but the better shape you are in the higher your chances are of making the summit. Any activity is good, biking, hiking, running, playing sports.
-1-2 day before the hike start drinking lots of fluids, the more the better!! (not soda).
-Eat a high carb meal such as pasta the night before and bananas the morning of the hike.
-Drink frequently during the hike and before you feel thirsty
-It might very well turn out that one or more of the boys decides to turn around and that’s ok, climbing 14ers is hard!

Boys Life?!
There is a rumor that Boys Life Magazine might send a photographer along to document our hike for a possible future story in the magazine!! I will keep everyone posted on if this rumor is true or not.
