Alumni and Old Guy Hikers

Just who are "the Old Guys"?

The old guys really are made up mostly of Troop 777 Alumni, some troop leaders, a few troop dads, and some other very good scouting friends from other troops.  The guys that get up on time (and some of the late folks too) gather most Sunday mornings and some holidays at 7 AM to hike and then share coffee, and maybe grab some breakfast.  The hikes range from short "lets get out of the cold" hikes to 8-9 mile "we need to train" hikes... We welcome any of the dad units or 777 alumni to join us any and all Sundays!

3-4 times a year, we hold "Old Guy" breakfasts where the hike is VERY short and then we make breakfast and just hang out a bit.  Breakfasts have been held at camp, in the valley, in the park and at some homes - no real pattern here mind you, other than the food is great!  The Old Guys regularly have special dinners to honor our better halves and to share some of the fun with our families. We have also performed service for the troop and others, organized dinners, caught a show, visited the ball park, etc ..., and, sometimes, we take trips.  A few trips are low adventure, front country camping, but most trips are a notch above what we let the boys do (after all, it is way more fun to camp where you are not at the top of the food chain...). There are some big pictures pages off of the menu bar above...

The future...

Summer 2012 saw the Old Guys take a small group back to the Grand Canyon. 2013 We went to Glacier National Park... Several of us are resting for our next trip (hopefully)...
