Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I thought that it would be fun to start an open forum of survival topics and outdoor skills that others can refer to for information and instruction. I will post a survival topic or skill and give some information on it. I will also be posting excerpts from my survival manual that I have been writing. Feel free to comment on it, or ask about a topic that I have not yet covered. Even professionals can learn a new way to do something. In this way we can all help each other. If you have a specific experience that you would like to share please feel free to do so at your own risk of others' comments. If you disagree with someone please be civil and respectful. One last thing, please keep it "G" rated i.e., no foul language or inappropriate subjects. If you break the rules I will pull your post. So let's keep it clean and have some fun!

Club Meeeting

Thanks to everyone that came to the first meeting. We had a great time and made some new friends. Sorry for the confusion with the grid coordinates. We will make the next one a little easier. We learned some pretty cool tips and tricks for starting a fire by friction.  For example, wrapping the spindle more than once with the cord helps keep it from flipping out, and a good starting length for your spindle is the length of your shin.  We had some delicious tin foil dinners, s'mores, and dutch oven pineapple upside down cake.  We also had a great time making new friends who love the outdoors.

Don't miss our next meetup!

We will try to meet in the same place. Big Springs trail head in the top parking lot.  We will try to get the first pavilion from the top (the one that we all ended up eating our dinners in). I will also have a banner this time. Our topic this next meeting will be TRAPS. So same thing applies, bring your foil dinner, flash light, Knife, water, and eating utensils.  Subscribe to this blog to keep up to date with future meetings and just in case we need to make any changes.

The meeting will be:
On 27 July 2012
From 1800-2100
