163Re: Who is on board
- Jan 16, 2003Ken, I wouln't discard hammocks yet without first contacting Philmont
yourself and asking. As I said before, tarps and bottomless tents
are not allowed. The hammock is a different animal. I would call.
Their number is (505) 376- 2281. There is a lot of info on the web.
Check out their website at www.philmont.com.
