When I was a teenager I would have less than this when we hit the woods!
How times have changed.
Now I have to go on a "special" campout to limit how much gear I take with me. LOL Shocked
No worriesl Ole Scout, we will help all that come to make sure you are as comfortable as possible, by showing you different ways of creating a natural camp using available materials.

The main thing to remember is the 5 C's:
Cut - a fixed blade knife is best
Cordage - 50-100' of paracord or equivelent
Cover - Some type of shelter tarp, whether a Heavy Duty Emergency blanket or tarp at least 5'X7' or military poncho
Combustion - a sure way of making fire that gives you eveery chance to get it going the first time
Container - Something to boil and carry water in. Could be a SS Bottle or a lastic bottle and soup can or metal cup, or a canteen cup combo.

Beyond that and its all luxury items.

Hope to see you out there!

Remember also that it will still be hunting season for small game. Be sure to have a small game license if you plan on hunting, and some hunters orange.

There is plenty of woods to take small game where we will be.

Looks good!
You won't need the tent with the tarp. We will be making lean-to's with long fires to keep warm. One fire in the middle with two shelters on either side for anyone who wants to. that will help with firewood collection. Might not need the shovel? I will bring a medium one for the group to use for latrine dootie. As we will want to designate one area for all to use to keep it clean...

We won't let anyone DIE, I promise. LOL What a Face

I am going to try and be out to the Port Huron Game Area Friday afternoon by 4pm, no later than 6pm.

I have to drop the daughter off in Howell sometime after noon, then travel to Port Huron. Then on Sunday I will be leaving around noon as I have to travel back to Howell to pick her up. She is going to the Anime Convention in Lansing with some friends of ours. Then on Monday my dad is having his hip replaced. Going to be a busy weekend for me for sure.

Looking forward to a weekend in the woods with ya'll.

Post by Gurthy on Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:24 am

I think I'll just stuff my daypack inside a larger rucksack with a couple of backup/comfort items. This is my plan:

EDC
Bushcraft Knife
Leatherman Wave
Ferro Rod
Compass
Topo Map
Pocket Surv. Kit

Typical Daypack Loadout
1. Folding Saw
2. Cordage
3. Firekit
4. FAK
5. HD Space Blanket
6. Water Bottle/Canteen
7. Kelly Kettle/ Canteen Cup
8. AMK Emergency Bivvy
9. Headlamp
10. Wetnaps/TP
11. Spare Wool Socks
10. Extra Clothing Layer
11. Food & Drink
12. Hatchet

Additional Items
13. Sleeping Bag (just in case... I've already had my fill of cold sleepless nights)
14. Sleeping Mat (I do not really want to cut down a bunch of evergreens for a natural bed)
15. Inflatable Pillow (just because I had one more item Smile )

I'll probably have a couple of field guides, a notebook, and a titanium mug too just because they're already in my daypack.

I cannot make it out until 10-11ish on Saturday morning...can somebody PM me a general description of the planned area of the camp. I'm quite familiar with the area so a brief description of what trail to take, east or west of the stream that crosses the pipeline, etc. will be helpful Wink

OK, I am coming!

I had some dental work yesterday that isn't quite right, but I'm coming anyway.

Gear change:
For my cover I am bringing some heavy mil plastic sheeting and my emergency blanket, counted as two items.

I'm bringing a roll of bankline instead of my paracord kit.

GURTHY! I HOPE YOU READ THIS....

I HAD TO TAKE DOWN THE TRAIL MARKERS.

GO WEST FROM THE TURNOUT UNTIL YOU SEE THE CORN FIELD, THEN PROCEDE TO THE SOUTH WEST CORNER OF THE GREEN PLANTED CLOVER FIELD, THEN WALK STRAIGHT BACK IN 150 YARDS INTO THE WOODS!

PLEASE, PLEASE BROTHER I HOPE YOU GET THIS BEFORE YOU LEAVE!
