February 2016 Backpacking

Our backpacking campout was on February 26-28, at Sam Houston National Forest. Our troop was

divided into 4 patrols, where our guys hiked with heavy backpacks for a combined 50+ miles! We had

also learned valuable skills along the way, such as eating and cooking on the go, finding a good camping

spot, preparing for Philmont Ranch, and crossing broken bridges. In the end, there were no serious

injuries or problems, making another great campout and achievement by our great Troop 570.
