Which High Adventure Base is more Wild

Recommended Posts

Personally, I've never been to Philmont, other "high adventure" bases, Nationaql Jamborees and such. Too costly and the Boy Scout Equivalent of Disneyland is my impression/supposition.


I have no objection at all for people using those facilities. But I can find plenty of high adventure and wilderness in the mountains of Washington State, British Columbia or Oregon by walking up almost any valley that doesn't have a road or trail.


My bias is to keep Scouting costs low. That can be a REAL adventure these days!

Philmont, unexplored and untouched, you have never been. Even 30 years ago we walked a lot of jeep trails, cough cough, gravel roads around.


You pick up your food every couple of days, hmmmmm,


I understand it is one of the holy grails of scouting and every boy should go, but it honestly isn't high adventure.


Brentallens, description and photos ARE OUTSTANDING, I would love to take a group of boys or at least send my son.
