Trek basics — the info you need to know

January is the perfect time to start planning your 2010 PSA Trek. This e-mail contains the Trek basics – the information you need to get started on your journey home to Philmont. Put the date on the calendar, start recruiting your Phriends and Trek-eligible family members and sing “I wanna go back to Philmont…”.

When

The Trek will be July 24 – July 31. You will report to the Welcome Center the morning of Saturday, July 24, hit the trail on Sunday, return to base camp late Friday morning or early Friday afternoon, and leave Philmont after breakfast on Saturday, July 31. Because you will be reporting to the Welcome Center early on July 24, as a practical matter you will need to spend the night of Friday, July 23 in the Philmont area.
