All I can say is WOW! What a bunch of enthusiastic young hikers we have this year! It was an absolutely beautiful day today at Douglas State Park and we had perfect weather for hiking on a long weekend, but still, I’m amazed at the turn-out: we had 36 kids (scouts and siblings) and 73 people in total. Terrific! We’ve had well-attended hikes before, but I think this is a record. It was also pretty cool to be starting our hike around 10:10am on 10/10/10!
As a reminder, parents should be keeping track of their own boy’s hiking logs. Each boy who hiked today should be credited 3 miles.
