I was visiting with one of my fellow Scouters and was reminded that the applications for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree in the new High Adventure Base in West Virginia are out.
There are new fitness requirements... She said if one had no problems walking up 10 flights of stairs... that was "in shape". WOW
Philmont Scout Ranch in NM has certain height to weight ratios and each arriving scout and scouter is given a physical to make sure they are able to do the 50+ mile hike. Looks like this physical fitness requirement will be in force for the next Jamboree.
There won't be the busses, private cars, barracks and dining halls like at Fort A. P. Hill. It's going to be the old "Shoe Leather Express" in the mountains of WV. We're talking camping here.
Well, got to run... I'm off the the gym... I only have one year to get ready for all that fun and adventure.
