Roan Mountain Backpacking trip (10/18-20/13)
See maps (attached at bottom of web page)
Start planning now for cold weather. Check if your personal gear still fits, etc.
Patrols should plan to have at least 2 patrol meetings to work on Personal Gear (including a shakedown where everyone brings their gear for inspection), Patrol Gear (think about checking it out early to make sure it works) – you will need a QM list, meals (need to be hot, cooked meals for the colder weather)
Patrol Leaders need to provide initial attendance list next Mon (10/7)
Fri night will be a 1 mile hike from the bus stop to the Over Mountain shelter. Don’t know if we will be able to stay in the shelter or not. Be prepared for using your tent.
Sat will be a 6.5 mile hike, but we will climb 2,000 feet in elevation from the Over Mountain shelter (4,500 ft) to Roan High knob (6,200 ft)
