Tucker Leaves for Philmont

Tucker Leaves for Philmont Scout Ranch

Today my oldest son Tucker headed out with a crew of scouts from our troop to travel to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico.  For decades, Philmont has been the crown jewel of many young men’s scouting experience.  At a size of 137,500 acres, Philmont is the largest youth camp in the world.

Tucker has dreamed of going there for years, having been filled with the stories of his grandfather’s adventures there as a scout in 1954.  In fact, Tucker even wrote one of the stories out as a one act play a few years back for a class project.  I’m looking forward to the stories he’ll bring back.  Stories that he’ll someday tell his grandsons and inspire in them a love of adventure.
