road walk back to camp after pizza

Cimarron

Today was a pure travel day, just to get us to the doorstep of
Philmont Scout Ranch.
Our 6:25AM flight left Sacramento on time. After a brief stop in Las
Vegas, NV, we continued on to ABQ and baggage claim.
Our driver, Vince from Follow the Sun Tours, was waiting nearby
outside, and we were very quickly on the road Northbound.
Soon, we were all ready for lunch, so we stopped in Santa Fe, NM. The
boys voted for Sonic burgers, which is exactly where we stopped two
years prior.
By 1PM, we were on the road again for Cimarron. Most of us tried to
get caught up on sleep. Others we in a deep discusion about the
various levels and weapondry of the latest Star Wars video game.
We checked in at Ponil Campgrounds and quickly set up a Philmont Style
camp. First, identify the various features of the camp, agree on
locations for the major "rooms" (bedroom, kitchen, living, etc., set
up the rainfly, then personal shelters pretty much in that order. The
boys seemed naturally programmed from Philmont 2008, and camp set-up
was painless. Maybe this speed and efficiency was related to the
promise of pizza in town. Which was very good by the way.
