Autumn Adventure - Philmont re-supply questions on 04/26/2011 21:31:51 MDT Print View

I'm planning a all adult leader Autumn Adventure at Philmont. I have a couple of re-supply questions:

We plan on being out for all 6 days likely on a southern trek. Does anyone know if we have to carry all of our food for our 6 day trek, or are there re-supply points like the typical summer treks?

Also, can we get a re-supply of white gas or iso canisters on the trek? I would like to bring my iso stove, over my Brunton AF or Lander to save on weight. (BTW: No alchol stoves are allowed with BSA)

Alcohol Stoves on 05/29/2011 22:29:33 MDT Print View

Homemade stoves are prohibited, which includes homemade can stoves.

Alcohol is "not recommended" as a fuel, but it is not prohibited.

So, a commercial alcohol stove is allowed by the BSA.

I think that Philmont can get a resupply to you with out to much problem. Give them a call, they are very helpful. dave

Yes, I contacted the ranch, and they will be able to accommodate a resupply!

Thanks
