Troop 43 will be mountain biking at Fort Custer, located in Augusta Michigan between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo. Scouts should remember to bring their helmets and gear (tent, rain coat/suit, mess kit, etc). Fort Custer is a system of trails used by mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers, and dog-sledders. We may also be visiting Fort Custer national cemetery, one of four national cemeteries in Michigan. Fort Custer national cemetery dates back to 1917 when it served as a mobilization station in World War One, but was not a cemetery until 1943.
