Day 57: Not a good day for crews preparing for Philmont treks this summer.
We have two crews excited to cover miles in New Mexico and they were supposed to put in for their trek choices on the Philmont Scout Ranch
site today. Unfortunately, something went wrong and the site greets hopeful trek leaders with:
|We are experiencing network problems, please be patient with us as we work to resolve this issue. No crews have been able to enter their selections and confirm an itinerary. In order to be fair to all crews we are shutting the system down for today.|
A new date will be determined once the problem has been resolved. An email will be sent to all crews alerting them of the new itinerary selection date. This new date will also be posted on this webpage.
Philmont apologizes for this inconvenience. We know how important this is to you and your crew. We thank you for your patience.
Well, here's hoping the bit jockeys get things straightened out and tested
soon so crews can continue their planning.
I got the monthly Boy Scout Trail contest prizes sent out.
I had a chat with my mom about barometers which led me to learn more online about how air pressure changes with elevation. There's about 21% oxygen in air no matter the elevation, but the density of the air diminishes due to less air above it resulting in less oxygen entering the lungs with each breath.
