Looking for a crew

E-mail Print PDF
This year's troop Philmont crew is on their way to camp via Amtrak. My son, Cody was supposed to have been crew leader, and I was to have been his lead advisor.We had to change our plans after Cody was hit by a car in May. He spent 17 days In a coma, then another seven weeks in hospitals. We brought him home yesterday, just in time to say goodbye to his crew. This is a little hard to take, but we're just glad he's alive, and we will try to get out to PSR next season. Toward that end, we Are looking for a crew, or will attempt to put one together on our own, that is interested in trek #30 or #32 in 2012. We are well equipped, capable and WFA trained. We are in the Chicago area, but would travel some to meet up for shakedowns as necessary.

{edit by Shane:  Paul is going to post this on the message board as well for replies.  Please reply to him there.  God speed to Cody.  Hope you guys get out to Philimont next year.}

    First of all, what a heartbreaking story and I am very glad that your son is going to be alright. I am from the Chicago area and have 1 crew heading out to Philmont in 2012. I would encourage you to check with Philmont or your affiliated Council office. You might be able to tag along with them if they have any openings. Good luck!

    I hope that Cody is doing well.

    For what it is worth our Troop has some slots open for a late-2012 trek. Let me know if you would like more details.

    Take care of your young man and all my best.
