The Kansas American Pioneer Corps chapter is doing a hike Sunday April 18th at 10 AM in Olathe, KS.
Location is the Ernie Miller Park, 909 North, KS-7, Olathe, KS 66061
Arf member kc215 is acting as host for this. IM him if you have any questions.
Here's the discussion in the KS HTF.
The goal is a 6 mile hike in under 2 hours. To count as a qualifying hike toward Pioneer Candidate 3rd class you need to do that speed while carrying a 45 pound pack. If that's more than you're ready for you can do it without any weight or a lower weight as a workout and prep to eventually begin full weight hikes.
You can read all about the requirements for the various ratings near the bottom of the American Pioneer Corps about us page.
