  DIRECTIONS:  From Oil City, Pa., go to Tionetsa, then take Rt. 666 to Minister Creek trailhead.

RETURN THIS FORM, DEPOSIT, & BRING REQUIRED EQUIPMENT, BELOW: Monday, June 13th 2005.  Deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE.  Trip will be postponed to August in the event of rain.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS:  This is a High Adventure Activity, a wilderness trip in the PA National Forest in an environment that includes rattlesnakes and bears.  A Scout must be able to carry 1/3 of his body weight on his back for a distance of three miles, and own or be able to borrow REQUIRED EQUIPMENT # 1-6, below.  Space is very limited due to transportation, so to be considered, bring the following equipment to the June 13th meeting.

1.) Hiking Boots (leather sneakers are not boots).  Good boots are available for about $5 at thrift stores.

2.) Two (2) pairs Heavy Duty non-cotton Hiking Socks, and two (2) pairs of non-cotton Hiking Sock Liners.  These help prevent blisters.  Boots should be about ˝ size larger than your normal size to fit these socks comfortably.

4.) Rain Gear: A rain suit to keep you dry, a 5'X7’ plastic tarp to keep your sleeping bag dry at night, and 12 clear lawn bags to keep your extra clothing dry.

5.) Non-Cotton Clothing: Such as your olive-drab nylon Activity Pants.  Polar Fleece sweatshirts and nylon pants are available for about $4 at thrift stores. Check the tags, look for silk, wool, or any synthetic such as polar fleece, polyester, nylon, rayon, etc.  Blue jeans & cotton socks are forbidden.

6.) Backpack.  A real camping backpack with a waist strap, not a school book-bag.  Ranger Rick has a couple of extra packs that he can loan to Scouts who bring the above equipment to the June 13th meeting. 

7.) 100% Polypropylene Long Underwear: If you own it, you must bring it.  Space is limited, so preference will be given to Scouts who own poly-pro long underwear and bring it June 13th.  You should always pack it to keep you warm when everything you own gets wet.  Buy poly-pro a couple of sizes LARGER than your normal size.

8.) See also the attached “Summer Backpacking Equipment List” for additional recommended equipment.
