"These properties are donated and dedicated to the Boy Scouts of America for the purpose of perpetuating faith—self reliance—integrity—freedom. Principles used to build this great country by the American pioneer so that these future citizens may, through thoughtful adult guidance, and by the inspiration of nature visualize and form a code of living to diligently maintain these high ideals and our proper destiny."
~Waite Phillips at the dedication of Philmont

I hate to write this.

I am no longer in a position where I can run the Philmont Forum.  Life has pointed me in a different path and I must take the path I'm given.  It has been a great 10 or so years getting to be a part of such a great community.  Philmont is a life changing experience.  If it werent, you wouldn't be reading this and I wouldn't be writing this.

The site will go down sometime in early January when my hosting account runs out.  I will have good backups of the databases used for this website.  If someone in the future wants to resurrect the site, I'll happily share the data.

Wish you all life, opportunity, friendship, and fellowship.  See you on the trail.

New Crew Picture

E-mail Print PDF
I went to Philmont last year, and I remember that I got a crew picture, but I don't remember framing it. I'm starting to think that I misplaced it. Is there any way I can get a new Crew Pic.
BTW I am talking about the manditory picture where you all sit down with the big board that says philmont and your trek number.

Site Downtime

E-mail Print PDF
Sorry about the intermittant site issues.  The site has been hacked a couple of times even though all software (at least as far as I can tell) is up to date.  I'm going to work on migrating the site to a new platform.  This may take some time.  In the mean time, I will do my best to keep this version up and active.
