Bangor Forest Snow Hike! (2018-03-24)

Hey Trailmen-

After much deliberation, your fearless leaders have decided that our hike will be at the Bangor City Forest.   This will be our first hike of 2018. Currently, we are planning on doing the East and West trails which should total approximately 5 miles.  So, here are the details:

When:  Saturday, March 24

Where:  Bangor Forest, Tripp Drive Parking Lot.
Tripp Drive is a left turn off Stillwater Avenue, 1.6 miles north of the junction of Stillwater Avenue and Hogan Road (just before the kennel and concrete factory).

Start Time: 3:30 pm

Finish Time: 5:30 pm

Packing List:

  • Bible
  • water
  • some trail snacks
  • weather appropriate clothing, including a winter hat, gloves, and appropriate footwear
  • small bag / backpack to carry their supplies in
  • A dry pair of shoes, socks and a SMALL towel might be nice for the ride home.

PLEASE NOTE:  The trails are covered with snow and are one person wide in places.  It is likely to be windy and cold, and it may snow.

Adventures await. Plan on joining us.


Meeting cancelation – March 10, 2018

Dear Trailmen and families:

Unfortunately, we need to cancel the meeting today (Saturday, March 10, 2018).

Simon/Doug are on the road with other commitments, and Steve woke up sick this morning – he doesn’t want to share those germs with everyone.

We’ll plan on regrouping next Saturday.

Let’s Have a Party!

Trailmen – it’s time to bust out of hibernation and Hit the Trail!

This fresh snowfall and a forecast for sunny (forty degrees!) weather this weekend means it is our chance to get our boys out of the house, and back into the habit of attending Trail Life!

Whether its been a month, or a long time since you’ve been to a meeting, we’d like to invite you to join the crew for some good old-fashion winter fun.

The Noddin family is hosting an outdoor sledding party at their home in Dedham this Saturday, 1/20/2018 starting at 1:30pm.
(You can text Doug or Steve for directions to the house.)

Bring your favorite sled(s)!  Bring your warmest snow-gear!  Bring your pet elephant! (No, wait…elephants don’t like sledding.  Better leave them home.)

We’ll have a cooking-fire going, so parents are welcome to send/bring along some hot dogs or snacks for the boys.  We’ll have cocoa enough for everyone.

See you there!
