If I could rewind back to July 31, 1985, it would place me in the middle of a mountainous valley in Colorado called Camp Hale where 16,129 Pathfinders gathered like the many Israelites in the wilderness.  Being the first North American Division Pathfinder Camporee, it took a bit of organizing to pull it off.  I’m relieved that we had Moses-ian leaders who knew what they were doing.
