Slide of the month Extra: Philmont Crew 7-11C


July 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design: Bill Macfarlane

By this point on our trek, day 12, we will be watching the sun rise on the Tooth of Time and will be hiking into base camp for the last time on trail in our Philmont 2022 experience.  The slide not only represents this early morning but the coming out of darkness for the Western Mass Crew. This is why we have chosen it for our logo. The 2018 crew could not attend because of the Ute Park Fire and in 2020 Covid canceled our trek. Our crew in 2022 has will finish what these crew could not but so desperately wanted to. I know Philmont will forever have a spot in our heart and maybe just maybe the crew will have made an impression on Philmont. 

Carved from maple similar to the one I did for the 2020 crew and just as difficult to create. Painted with hobby paints, lettered with waterslide paints, and sealed with a couple coats of poly.
