Do not bring your own PFDs (personal flotation devices) for the HA trip. They will be provided.

Urgent: Greg LeBlanc sent an email on 7/3/2012 with all Scouts and Adults who are missing forms. Please refer to the email for which forms you are missing. Forms are also available here: High Adventure - July 7th

Hopefully, this will answer any remaining questions prior to our Saturday departure.  Also, click on the image at the bottom for a summary of our itinerary for reference.


  1. We have had one change in our adult attendance.  Thom Sumner will not be in attendance.  Patrol assignments remain as they were.
  2. Friday Check-in…be at the hut at 6:30pm with your duffle bags and dry bags ready to load on the bus and van.  We will also load the food, gear, etc.  Plan on staying until completion.
  3. Forms…bring any outstanding forms to Friday’s check-in and give to Greg.  Greg sent a list of missing forms.
  4. Payments…bring any final payments and give to Joel.
  5. Passports…bring your passport to the Friday check-in and give to Greg.  We will collect them so none get lost during the trip.  Make a copy to keep at home.
  6. Saturday Departure…be at the hut at 6am for a 6:30am departure.  Our itinerary for the day includes a stop at the New River Gorge Bridge and we need to arrive in Dayton before 7pm.  Bring your day packs with whatever travel stuff you need.  We will not have access to the duffle bags or dry bags while traveling.
  7. Travel attire…wear HA 2012 t-shirt, cargo type shorts (no gym shorts, jeans or cut offs), tennis shoes or docksiders (no flip flops).  NOTE:  Be sure your son packs his Class B uniform (scout shirt, red troop t-shirt, scout shorts, scout socks, shoes), when possible we will wear this when eating out.
  8. HA T-shirts…if you did not receive 3 HA shirts, the balance of shirts are in and will be handed out at Friday’s check-in.
  9. Travel Snacks…the Troop is providing travel snacks, etc.  Please minimize the amount of extra candy, gum, etc you send with your son.  We will be on the bus over 40 hours combined for this trip and keeping our wonderful asset (the bus) in good condition ensures long term use by not only us but future T33 scouts.  We will take required bio breaks and snack breaks while traveling thus NO EATING on the bus.
  10. Spending Money…the Troop pays for all meals during the trip.  However, if your son wants to buy souvenirs, ice cream, etc at some of our stops then he’ll need some spending money.  Recommend you minimize this as keeping up with their money (& any electronics they bring) is their responsibility.
  11. Medications…if your son requires daily medications please let Greg know.  He will get with one of the adults in your son’s crew to insure they take their medications as required.


Looking forward to a wonderful trip!
