Shakedown Guide

This guide is intended to be an all-encompassing tool for crews to utilize in order to prepare for an upcoming Philmont trek. It is highly recommended that crews participate in at least two shakedown hikes prior to their trek. To help facilitate this, we have split this guide into two separate PDF documents to allow the crew to focus on different topics on each hike.
