Most memorable outdoor moment:
"In the summer of 2005 I got the chance to hike a 80+ mile trek through Philmont Scout Ranch. Around the fifth day of an eleven day trek we come to the base camp of Baldy Mt. called Miranda. That night we all turned in pretty early because the next day was a long one. We usually kept all of our food items in 'bear bags', which were sacs tied off on a cable between two trees. But for some reason or another I left a pack of powder hot chocolate in the top part of my pack. Needless to say, around 3am one of the other scouts wakes up and says he thinks there's something in out campsite making a strange noise. I remember turning on my head lamp and unzipping my tent and straight forward about 20 feet away was a small black bear with its head in what appeared to be my backpack! To make a long story short we spent the next hour singing songs loudly, and banging pots together to scare the bear away, not to mention a good twenty minutes he spent in a nearby tree after the 'chase the bear' idea failed! The following morning we still managed to get up at seven, and make it to the top of Baldy Mt. (12,441)ft by lunch time! By the end of that day I was minus a top part to my pack, but plus a new nickname, BearBait!"
