Components 1 & two
I am going to head out tomorrow and attempt this. She reduce me loose for 3 days and when the climate is not perfect, it is a not strings attached weekend. I am not at all confident how it will go having said that, I believe I’ve covered the bases. So to it then…
The strategy for the outing is easy. I am going to invest this time on a chunk of woods in southern Ohio. If all the things is nonetheless as I recall it I ought to have access to water, a fair quantity of hardwood nuts, and a lot of stuff to create a shelter. I am hoping to frame up one thing easy and elevated but we’ll see. I ought to arrive by 10 to 11 AM on 10/four and will wrap up and hopefully be back property by two PM on 10/five. Encounter and summary post to stick to.
Rather than post 20 images, I’ve rolled components 1 and two of this lesson up into a video the ideal I can. It involves my strategy B, notification of a accountable celebration, com strategy, and so on. I’ve altered my PSK pretty a bit because my post in the PSK elective lesson so I’ve integrated it in this vid as properly. If I never do a excellent sufficient job of detailing it, please let me know if there are any inquiries. This is my ideal guess at what we’re immediately after right here…
Much more immediately after I make it back…
Components three & four
This was a various sort of outing but to be fair, this would almost certainly be pretty a bit extra involved if it had been colder… Maintaining the fire operating all evening would have been an great distraction. I was hoping for the mid 40’s nights we had been getting not that lengthy ago but this was the evening I had and it was never ever beneath 65 degrees.
With so tiny kit to mess with and only a cell telephone for shooting vids and maintaining in speak to with men and women (no hours and hours of Angry Birds if I wanted to battery to final…), the evening dragged on and on. The video covers it quite properly I believe. No challenges truly. Some bugs, some sweat, some joint kinks, some (largely) hungry… Covered a quite broad swath of the factors performed in the standard an intermed class and all had been beneficial.
A handful of huge takeaways for me from this:
1. I will need to get a manage on creating cordage. When I ran out, there wasn’t a lot else to do… I seriously never ever regarded that I may have to tie up a shelter with fishing line.
two. I will need to get a complete lot improved at foraging and plant ID. When what is in my kit requirements to match in my pockets, it is a lot handier to know what can be identified onsite to consume. The scavenging nuts strategy created sense till it failed.
three. Get improved at creating insulation beds. Ground sleeping sucks sufficient. Without having some padding, it sucks worse. I guess I could just figure how to get a hammock in my PSK…
four. Get a TP solution into the PSK. Nuff mentioned….
Anyhow, good entertaining and all performed. Thanks,
