I need confirmation TONIGHT that you are still planning on going.

Note that this is not the best trip to do as your first backpacking trip. Snowshoeing is strenuous work, and cold weather presents additional challenges.

Since we are over subscribed, we may be able to have a few youth and adults do a 1/2 way hike and return to Joe Dodge lodge.

Yours in Scouting,
