Remember an MRE will be provided for lunch. The Hike course itself is approximately 7 miles, and any explorer with enough energy afterwards has the option of going on an adventure hike up stream. For those who have not been on the adventure route, it is approximately 1 1/2 miles up stream, off trail, ending at a small waterfall. Lt. Col. Brown and Lt. Estey will be leading the off trail adventure hike.
NCO's and staff NCO's are advised to bring a small pocket notebook and pen to take notes and keep track of attendance. Gear accountability for all explorers is the responsibility of the NCO's attending the hike. Any explorers that do not attend the 1 1/2 mile adventure hike at the end will be involved in field instruction classes on camouflage, cover and concealment, and tactics given by the CO Col. Foster.
