SD Trip: Things to bring Friday and Saturday

Good Morning!

I'm getting really excited for our campout!
Here are the things you should bring Friday night for Trailer Load:
1) $75 check to the troop for the trip
2) FOOD MONEY: $20 for food money on the way home Tuesday. - Give to Mr. Bailey
3) A copy of your current health insurance card Front and Back to include in your health form
4) Any Medications and medication form
5) A Health Form if we don't have yours - see prior emails
6) Your Hiking bag, completely packed and ready for pack check. We WILL be unloading and checking everything
7) Your Small backpack containing the clothes you will change into to wear for hiking and anything extra you want to bring - We will inspect boots and hiking clothes Friday night
8) PLEASE ADD a stocking hat and light gloves to your packing list. We have awesome weather for hiking with 45 low at night and 65 high in the day but that can get chilly when sitting still after hiking.

On Saturday, you should:
Eat before you come (be there by 5:30 AM)
Wear your travel clothes, including your Class A (Brown) Uniform
Bring a bag lunch and neat/ clean snacks for the vehicle. We will NOT be stopping at a restaurant Saturday. Please be respectful of the vehicles you're riding it.
Bring Games or Electronics AND cords / battery AND headphones for use in the vehicles on the drive out and back ONLY. YOU are responsible for your device. We will NOT be taking them on the trail. We will NOT be going back to find devices if you lose them. Bring at your own risk.
Bring any spending you want for Wall Drug (separate from the $20 food money above)
