You know you've been to Philmont when:

Good Scouting Days All

 

I Scoutmaster friend of mine sent me this. Enjoy!

 

This is the work of a 2003 Philmont crew.

 

1. Squeeze cheese is a delicacy, especially Jalapeo!

 

2. You're leaving to run errands with your kids and one of them pipes up

"Is anyone not ready?"

 

3. You make sure your kids are wearing closed toe shoes before going out to

play.

 

4. You stock up on water whenever it's available.

 

5. You automatically look for floaters.

 

6. You think water without Polar Pure is bland.

 

7. A two hour hike is 'nothing.'

 

8. You keep a spider stick in the bathroom.

 

9. 2 showers is 10 days is "good enough".

 

10. "Swap" automatically means better food.

 

11. You're getting dressed in the morning and "This was clean yesterday" is

OK.

 

12. Teenage boys look forward to going to bed early and taking hot showers.

 

13. You get excited about Chips Ahoy for dinner.

 

14. You scope your back yard for the dandy bear bag tree.

 

15. "Get piece of the rock" takes on a new meaning.

 

16. You go to a friend's house for a sleepover and you automatically look

for the sump.

 

17. You pack for a two week vacation with three sets of clothes.

 

18. Chuckwagon seems like fine dining.

 

19. Hiking for 6 hours 'isn't so bad'.

 

20. Getting up early is worth it.

 

21. A 500 foot climb is worth it for the view.

 

22. You can eat an entire meal of finger foods and not touch any of it with

your fingers.

Hi All

 

>>What do the following ones refer to?

Floaters are those little things that end up floating in your drink or meal. Floaters are usually safe because they are sterilized before consuming, but can be an unusual addition to the texture.

Just a little more info:

Pilot-to-CoPilot: side by side seating

Pilot-to-Bombardier: back to back seating

Both involve no screening - takes a little getting used to for most city scouts. Some used to be within clear view of trail - nothing to do but grin and wave as the cute coed crew hikes by...

 

Recommendation is to urinate on a rock instead of classical tree. Varmints will chew the bark off tree to get the salt. No harm in using soft ground instead of rock.

You and your family have spent a great week at the Conference Center and you wonder "Why can't more of our Scout camps offer programs for the entire family?"

Fuzzy Bear,

 

Yes you can elect to throw your boots over a sign at basecamp. It is my understanding that they take them down on a yearly basis. But hey, if you get them branded... then they become immortal. Unuseable, but immortal all the same :p
