Its that time of yearWith the 2019 season over, Fall is the season when PS gets updated, overhauled and primed for the coming season. 2020 promises to stress me a little more than normal in that the addition of 9 day treks introduce a wrinkle. While the model invented for 7 day treks will work, the implementation did not anticipate yet another option, so, some cleanup and generalization is in order to make things work as expected. Be patient with me, you will see the odd error now and then when Im likely working on it … Ill try to be done before the Holidays. YiS Jim
New in 2020: 9-Day TreksPhilmont Scout Ranch is excited to announce 9-day treks as an additional program option available to those who want to participate in a Philmont trek. 9-day treks are an excellent option for those who want to spend more than a week in Philmont’s backcountry, but may not be able to make it out for a full 12-day trek due to travel or other factors.
