On December 7th the boys and Gary and Jeff tackled the the Greenbelt Trail. The weather was great and the temperature too.

Some of the boys wanted to complete the 20 mile hiking requirement for the Hiking Merit Badge.  So this was requested and our Troop made the arrangements and we were able to complete the hike.  One other Scout from Troop 170 who also wanted to complete the requirement for Hiking MB joined us.  He hiked with Gary at Philmont this summer and also requested the hike.

Bully.

On Nov. 15, 2015 12 Scouts and 7 leaders decided to bring the Scouts for a tour of New York City. The hike we did is the NYC Historical Trail which is made available by the NYC Boy Scout Council’s Order of the Arrow Lodge.  We went to famous landmarks such as Saint Mark’s Church, the NYC Police headquarters (old and new), and the new World Trade Center site. We also walked through Chinatown and little Italy and went into some history of these cultures. And finally, we had a bite at the Hard Rock Cafe.  After we ate we were brought by the manager to the top of the marquee which has a great view of Times Square and the New Year’s Eve ball.  The Scouts had a great day.

On September 26, 2015 our troop backpacked 5 miles in and out at Harriman State Park. The weather was in our favor and the hike took LESS time than the hike last year. Once we arrived at the camp site, we set up our tents and taught the new Scouts about cooking, knots, bearbags, and using portable stoves.  After a good night’s rest we awoke in the morning and had a quick breakfast and packed up our gear for the hike back to the cars.
