What sets Troop 147 apart? Actually, we believe it is our devotion to Bible-infused outdoor adventure; however, one may argue that a close second is our exclusive High Adventure Base trip to Taos, New Mexico (early-Summer).
8-DAY ITINERARY (June 2018):
- DAY 1 (Saturday): Depart from Dallas, TX to Taos, NM
- DAY 2-7: Various overnight camping spots and day-hikes throughout the mountains.
- DAY 8 (Saturday): Return home, back to Dallas, TX.
On nights 1 and 7, the troop and their families will sleep in a fully furnished home (electricity, running water, showers, etc.) located in the historic district in Taos, NM. This house has been provided for our use solely at the discretion of one of the families in Troop 147. While the trip is book-ended with a nice place for the Trailmen and their families; the Trailmen (boys and their fathers) will spend the majority of the adventure (6 days) properly ‘roughing it’ in the Carson National Forest. This is a time for the troop to get away from the usual distractions of the city through primitive camping, hiking, fishing, etc; while also providing time for the rest of the Trailmen’s families to fellowship from the comfort of civilization in the suburb of the city.
As with all Troop 147 trips, electronics stay home, so we can truly connect with God’s wonderful creations, nature and each other (with the exception of emergency phone calls and radios kept by adult leaders).
