Philmont Crew 709R (1990)

My crew on my first trek at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico

My first (of 5) Philmont trek began 20 years ago today.

Wow. Twenty years. I had no idea how much that journey would change my life!

Grandmama was scared I was going to get eaten by a bear. I didn’t even see one that Trek. I did eventually see two bears during my time at Philmont. None of them ate me though. I’m glad Grandmama was wrong.

I’m glad God gave us the wisdom to let you go on those trips. You and your brother have so many great memories. It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed. I’m glad Grandmama was wrong too!!
