Review of training weekend by Steve Y.

Pat, Chuck, Barry, and myself have returned from our weekend at Baxter.  We saw no rescue action, so we had plenty of time to relax.  We were stationed at the northern end of the park (quiet side) at Trout Brook Farm.   We did several hikes, Barry and Pat did some fishing, and we explored the adjacent campgrounds.  We did some on mountain compass training review and had plenty of time to do some planning for the future of FSAR.  If you have not participated in a Baxter trek I hope you can find time to do so in the future.  The next trip is scheduled for August 27&28.  Talk to me or Pat for details....Steve Yates
