I worked in the backcountry, first year at Indian Writings and second year at Apache Springs. It was amazing; so many good people and good memories.

i stayed at the Indian Writing site! if i remember, it was our second site; very pretty area, but the river was too thick with silt for us to pump so we had to walk all the way from the boonies tent area to the staff area to get water. it felt like a half mile round trip XD

good memories indeed :) (and great people who found me when i was lost. long story, dont worry, everything ended up okay)

Yeah, IW had a tough set-up for campers, and an even worse water situation. But it was still a good camp. I'm glad you got un-lost!

And this may be weird but I stumbled across your stuff while searching for Philmont related art - I have worked on there for the past two summers! It's awesome to see other phil-staffers on here!

Sweet!! Where did you work? And will you be back next year?
I was in the backcountry at IW last year.

The past two summers I've made a home in the Handicraft Lodge on PTC side, but this summer I'm gonna try the back country! They haven't placed me yet, though. :(
Oh! YOU know Chelsea!!! I worked with her often when she was a Group Leader. That's awesome! IW's a sweet camp too!

:icondeisi:
Deisi Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes! Chelsey's great. Did you know she's engaged? I don't know if she's coming back this year or not, but she's worked there for like fifteen years, so I think she should just work there the rest of her life! :)

That's awesome, though. Backcountry is so fantastic... because you're just out there and moving around all the time and living so simply. It's really refreshing. AND we don't have to deal with all the crap that rangers do! Haha, we get real food and days off and a real bed (well... foamies) and only have to deal with scouts for little intervals!

I don't know too many people who worked around PTC... I know Danny Caine, who may have dated someone... Emily? Who might have worked around there.

Yeah, I'd seen that n facebook, it's real sweet. :) Tru story, if I could work there for the rest of my life, I totally would. And she could basically work at whichever camp her heart desired.

Yeah, PTC's got a lot of it's own crap. My first summer out there I got to spend about 5 days at Crooked and I KNEW I was going to have to go out there someday. I applied for Rich and Cypher's so hopefully I'll get one of those, but I'd work anywhere really.

Yeah, I don't know either of those names, really. Hmm But there were like 4 danny's. Haha.

AAA I applied for Rich and Cypher's too! Haha. That's funny. Have you seen the Porchenanny at Rich? Oh lord Tim and Ellie are practically gods on the fiddle/banjo/guitar/cello/mandolin/every instrument known to man.

And I know what you mean about working there the rest of your life... it's such a wonderful lifestyle, and I feel like I'm really doing something worthwhile.

Haha that's awesome! Sadly I didn't get a chance to go up and see Rich Cabins, myself, but I did hear all kinds of amazing things about it and decided to put it as mu first choice. Last I heard from Barbara it was full up though. :( So now I'm hoping for Cypher's cause I love me some Blacksmithing! Have you been placed yet?

Yup, me too. There have been maybe 2 jobs in my entire life that I've ever actually felt like they were worth something, and Philmont tops them. Life is the way it's supposed to be out there, I think. People are friendly and honest and the pace of life is slow. Ah man I miss it so much!

I've been accepted to Backcountry, but not placed, because I'll be such a late arrival from New Zealand. So I'm sort of worried I'll get there and they'll be like... "Hm... off to Ute Gulch with you!"

But I'm pretty confident that no matter where I'm placed, I'll still meet wonderful people and have a great time.

Haha... I was up at Rich twice, and... well, one of my more epic adventures happened there. To make a really long story short, me and two rangers and a cons girl decided to dayhike up to Rich for the Porchenanny and then drive back to Base and crash somewhere for the night. We borrowed a friend's car, drove to Ponil, hiked the five miles up to Rich, and stayed for dinner and the 'nanny. We then started hiking back around 11 pm, and about 3/4 of a mile away from the cabin, we realize the ranger in charge of driving had lost our friend's car key. So basically we had to spend the night at Rich and hike back to Ponil the next morning to catch the bus, but we ended up finding the key on the trail, where the ranger had dropped it after splashing in a mud puddle.
