August 10 & 17, 2014
The Venture Crew has kicked off a series of conditioning hikes in preparation for attending Philmont in 2015. All those registered for Philmont 2015 are strongly encouraged to participate in these hikes. Weighted backpacks to simulate those carried at Philmont should be used on these conditioning hikes. Conditioning hikes are tentatively planned to begin Sunday mornings at 7:00am at the Grant's Trail parking lot at Norrenburns Lumber on Tesshire Rd, unless superseded by another Venture outing. The August 10th hike was 4 miles with a duration of about 2 hours. The August 17th hike was 5 1/2 miles with a duration of about 2 1/2 hours.
