Spring is upon us. It is time to get out of the Lodge and onto the trail. March’s event is going to be a five mile hike at Tunk Mountain. This should be the most challenging hike we have taken so far. Tunk Mountain, located outside of Cherryfield, is further afield than the Troop has been before. The hike contains a steeper section of trail than we have encountered before. A stream crossing is included. The weather also looks questionable but we still plan on giving it a try!
Meeting Place: Dysart Travel Stop on Rt. 1A in Holden
Meeting Time: 9 am
Finish Time: 5 pm
Here are the things that your son will need:
- a BAG LUNCH
- some trail snacks
- weather appropriate clothing including a hat, gloves and a jacket
- rain gear
- a small bag / backpack to carry their supplies in
We would suggest that the boys put a plastic bag inside their bag to keep their stuff dry. A dry pair of shoes, socks and a SMALL towel would be nice for the ride home.
We would also suggest that you send your son with a small amount of money for a snack/hot cocoa on the ride home.
FINALLY, we need to know who is coming so that we can figure out how many vehicles we will need. If I have not hear from you by Thursday, I am going to assume that you are not coming and make the plans accordingly. Dads, if you are willing to drive, please let me know.

Here is a link with information about where we are going.
