Patrol G Rattlesnake Point Trip
This weekend, Patrol G is going to be climbing and hiking in Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area, Milton, Ontario, Canada. Yes, that's right, we're going to Canada, the land of bagged milk, maple syrup, Tim Horton's, and those Canadians. We will be going through Canada for nearly 200 miles or (if you want to use that weird metric system) 300-ish kilometers. Sadly, this place doesn't have many cool stories that I can tell you about (unlike many American places such as Red River Gorge, Ohiopyle, the Alleghenies, and Manistee), but one special story about your wonderful patrol leaders and what they did last time they came here. Anyways, Rattlesnake Point is an awesome place even if it's located in Canada.
Since we are going to Canada, you will need some identification to get you past the border. This could include a passport or a copy of your birth certificate. Also, to convince the border patrol that we are a Boy Scout troop, you will need to bring your uniform shirts and have them on across the border. Other than that, you should also bring some clothes that will keep you warm. It will most likely be somewhat cold (it is in Canada after all), and we don't want to have any hypothermic scouts on this trip.
There aren't any requirements for this trip but one. You must be in Patrol G, or else you can't come on this trip (what's the point of a patrol trip if people from more than one patrol come, right?).
