My emails over the next two weeks will probably be a bit short.
This hike at the Philmont Boy Scout Ranchi s is going to be something else. And between the long, grueling days of hiking and the near-complete lack of internet, it’s going to be a little bit hard to get these out.
In fact, I got up this morning before everyone else to gain a little elevation so I could get enough bars on my phone to send this message.
You’re probably wondering how I’m going to keep my phone charged during this epic trek. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I have a solar charger for my phone. I’m trying to disconnect as much as possible during this time with Ernie Jr., but I’ve gotta stay a little connected to the real world lol.
I found a spot this morning with good enough reception to send you a couple of pics I took at the trailhead of this adventure.
Here’s a pic of my son, Ernie Jr. (he’s the one on the right)
And here’s a selfie of me with the mountains in the background
No lesson in this email. Just wanted to share this amazing trip with you.
I’m sure I’ll have an epiphany or two along the way that I’m going to want to pass along to you. In the meantime, please keep me, Ernie Jr., and the rest of our troop in your prays!
Committed to your success,
Ernie “Just Getting Started” Vargas | The Probate Fox
Off We Go!
