Hello, Pack 345
I’m excited about fishing next weekend! We have made a few changes to our plans. The biggest change – We are not planning to camp. This will be a one-day Pack event (We have great camping opportunities planned in September and November).
In lieu of camping, we have added a visit to a very cool museum along our route home.
We are going to visit the Museum of Aviation!
