Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont IWGBTP

July 2022

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

When this slide goes live I'll be on a plane heading home. I can't believe the little things that have tried to stand in the way of me going to Philmont but all I can think now is 

On a redeye unable to sleep
full of jet lag
Tired, dirty and un-showered
after driving 5 hours straight
to the airport
full of gas station food
having to go to work tomorrow
and I can think 

OK, poor excuse for a ranger chant but click the link above or search Philmont Ranger chant on Youtube to see it done right.

Carved from southern (pallet) pine and not being very good at letters, I wanted to give it a go. Not bad if I do say so myself after giving it a couple of coats of amber shellac. Now you know if you have seen these letters on a backpack or even on bumper sticker on the car ahead of you, the owner went to Philmont. They want the world to know "I Wanna Go Back To Philmont"
