@Woods Hey Collin!

I just wanted to tap in and give you (and your troop) some props for K'esugi Ridge, that is a very serious trail! I lived in Fairbanks for the last 6 years and while I never had the opportunity to do that trail I talked to a lot of folks who did. Did the weather cooperate? There are some amazing veiws of Denali from up there if the weather is clear. Well done!

Hey @Woods - A fifty mile backpacking trip! That sounds amazing. As @Philreedshikes said, we’d love to hear more about it.

We’re glad you’re considering REI as a potential sponsor for your troop. We sponsor a limited number of programs, primarily at the local/store level. Please contact the outdoor programs and outreach team member at your closest REI store for more information. Hopefully this helps!
