Fall Backpacking Trip

Hello Troop 93 Scouts and Parents,


We are pleased to announce plans for our Fall backpacking trip the weekend of October 7 & 8 at the Stone Door Trail, South Cumberland Recreation Area, near Altamont, TN.  Jeff Lang has already met with the ranger and checked out the trail and campgrounds.  You can sleep in for this trip because we are not planning to leave from the church until 8:00 a.m. Saturday, October 7.  Please eat breakfast before you arrive at the church.  Stone Door Trail is about 25 miles off the Interstate 24 Altamont exit #127.  We should be on the trail shortly after 10:00 a.m. with no plans to stop along the way.  You will have maps and more details as the day draws near.  Plan on bringing swimwear and a good towel for a break at the Blue Hole near the end of our first day on the trail.


We need to get a head count to the ranger early next week.  Please respond with a quick e-mail back to me or Jeff Lang by Tuesday if you plan to go.  The permission slip for the trip is attached.  Please complete the slip and bring it to Fun Night this Tuesday or no later than the troop meeting Tuesday, October 3. 


Hope to see you all on the trail!!
