Patrols and Meals
We will be having a break out session closer to the hike and divide into patrols to doing meal planning.
What to wear hiking:
- Hat with brim
- Broken in hiking boots with wicking socks
- Pants (removable leggings) or shorts and something windproof for legs.
- Daypack containing:
- 10 essentials
- 1-2 liters of water
- Polar fleece or light jacket
- Light waterproof rain parka
- Lightweight gloves for warmth
- Sunscreen, chapstick
- Medicine for headache and stomach ache
- Snacks – high protein (granola, trail mix, jerky, power bars, etc.)
- Camera (optional)
How to Prepare:
- Get in shape! The better shape you are in the higher your chances are of making the summit. Any activity is good, but especially biking, hiking and running.
- Start drinking lots of fluids 1 to 2 days before the hike; the more the better!! This does not mean soda!
- Eat a high carb meal such as pasta the night before and bananas the morning of the hike.
- Drink and snack frequently during the hike and before you feel hungry or thirsty
- One or more of the boys might decide to turn around and that’s ok. Climbing 14ers is hard!
SAVE THE DATE!!
- Did you have fun at the spring Merit Badge Academy?
- Did you learn some new things?
- Did you eat some good food?
- Are you ready for the next one?
Troop 88 is working on the Fall Academy and the date is currently 21 September 2013.

Mr. Buckingham will be putting together another awesome event for the Troop. Watch for more information to come!
Upper Platte River Camping and Fly fishing
The last weekend in August is a great opportunity to go camping, plant some trees to restore the forest and do some fly fishing!
The Coalition for the Upper Platte River is doing forest restoration to help restore what the fires burned. Troop 88 is going to be part of that effort.
More information will be coming on this trip but you can visit the Coalition’s website in the mean time.
One more thing – when we do go on campouts, you have to have your medical forms completed. Instead of me trying to explain what form is needed for which campouts, please use the link below to the Dever Area Council’s site that has a great explanation on what you need when.
