Crews should attach identification tags we provide for their backpacks. On the tag, carefully print:
Complete Expedition (Crew) Number (for example, 630D4)
Philmont Scout Ranch
47 Caballo Road
Cimarron, NM 87714
This is so that should the backpack become lost, the airline will deliver the pack to Philmont. We also strongly recommend attaching an identification tag of your making directly to the frame of the backpack, inside the bag.
For the return home, use your home address and home phone number on the identification tags. Plan ahead to have extra nametags, magic markers, and duct tape available for the return trip. Participants with duffel bags are welcome to use their own instead of the nylon bags but should use the recommended identification process.
COMPLETE EXPEDITION (CREW) NUMBER (for example, 711F2)
Philmont Scout Ranch (Phone: 575-376-2281)
47 Caballo Road
Cimarron, NM 87714.
Ship no later than two weeks before the crew’s scheduled arrival. The shipping method should include the service to track progress and assure the package has arrived at Philmont. The sides of box should be color-coded with tape or magic marker for easy identification in the Philmont Post Office. Extra packing tape, duct tape, nametags, and postal labels should be put in the box for use to ship the stoves home. While on the trek, the shipping box is stored in the locker provided by Philmont, and after return to Base Camp at the end of the trek the box is re-addressed for shipping the stoves home. This very important process will be covered in detail at the June Advisor Briefing.
