DAILY UPDATE: Backpacking Camp Out

Troop 531,
Today’s update for those going backpacking this weekend:
I hope you are looking forward to our trip as much as the leaders are. Only 1 more day to prepare. 
Remember 4:45 tomorrow for shakedown if you can make it. It may be tough to get there at the start, especially for middle school Scouts. So don’t be afraid to show up a little later than 4:45. A couple of us will stay until 6 PM. 
Here are a couple links to the place we are going:
http://www.ouachitamaps.com/McGee%20Creek.html – This gives lots of great info on McGee Creek NSRA. It also provides the ability to print off a trail map so your Scout can bring his own and work on his map reading skills. Very handy.
http://www.travelok.com/listings/view.profile/id.18039 - Contains general information about McGee Creek NSRA. 
http://www.exploretheozarksonline.com/activities/parksnature/stateparks/oklahoma/mcgeecreek/index.html - Contains general information on the McGee Creek State Park area. 
If anyone needs to borrow gear, please let us know quickly. Andy Hudson (andy.hudson@bankofamerica.com, 214-454-3780).
