Outline and Slide Presentation
- Course Outline — The outline used to plan the course and the presentation slides.
- Slide Presentation — The slides shown in the course. Please see the enclosed readme.txt file for more information.
- Editable slides — The Works word processor file (*.wps) used to build the slide presentation. Please see the enclosed readme.txt file for more information.
These were for 2008 expeditions but should give you an idea of what you'll get for your expedition.
- Council and Unit Planning Guide — Electronic version of the printed guide sent to all contingent leaders.
- Advisor Reminder Checklist — sent May 2008 to remind advisors of what they needed to have available upon check-in/registration. Make it easy on yourself and have these items all in one manila envelope!
- Advisors' Health Form Reminders — Sent early June 2008 after crews had started arriving. They're serious as a heart attack (pun intended) about this subject. Be absolutely sure about these things before you leave home.
Documents we used within our crew.
- Philmont Scout Ranch — The "official" web site.
- Selden's Philmont Web Pages — a huge repository of information about Philmont from actual participants.
- Philmont topo maps — "Cut-ups" of the Philmont sectional maps. Useful for itinerary planning/selection.
- The Philmont Forum — Not an "official site". From their description: "Run by Scouters for Scouters." Get answers to your questions about all things Philmont on this forum. But search before you ask...
- Troop 53 2008 Philmont Expedition — Of course I like to think that this provides a lot of important information, but I'm biased. See especially my "Random Notes and Thoughts" and the "Wrapup" pages. Some of this was imparted upon U of S course participants but it's here in black and white.
