|Cover of the first Tobasco Donkey's record|
I met many, many amazing people there ----- and cherish too many sweet memories to blog about.
However, some of my favorite memories are of the many campfire programs that staff put on for the scouts. Songs, stories and poems about love, America and the great outdoors. As with most camping activities, there is something special that happens at night around the soft glows of warm flames.
A few of my friends, over the course of several summers formed a band and even went on to record two records. I have Philmont Phriends Music listed as a favorite, but I should list them as their band title, Tobasco Donkeys.
Their music is gentle and fun; a mix of campfire favorites and ballads; soul and folk; and always a comfort when I am longing for yet another chance to go HOmE (as we like to call Philmont). They have a few free downloads on their website for enjoyment (and I would add them to this post, but I have no idea how to do that.)
