Glitch, I might have to borrow some camping items. I am gonna try to pick-up a surplus large Alice pack before the event.
I would also like to set-up some field classes. Slugg would be great for First Aid classes. Other possible classes could include Land Navigation, Field expedient shelters, Bush craft, fire-starting, communications, the possibilities are limitless. The point is that we can have fun, but make it a learning experience as well. Anybody with experience in these areas? Anybody have some other ideas for classes?

i am going to try and get a hold of RCwalla and Ghostwolf to see if they could attend, i know that RC is a fire master and he would probably have a few things he could teach.

That's great. I hope they can attend.

I was looking at the Texas State Parks site trying to find a location central to both Austin and San Antonio.
Here's the site. It has descriptions of park features.

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/park ... le/austin/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

At a quick glance, the Guadalupe River/Honey Creek Site seems like a good choice for camping/hiking. Has anybody gone there before?

if anyone else wants to go let me know i will cover the park entrance fees.

You can come out the next day if you would like. Besides Rush without Neal Pert is like the Beatles without Ringo, Genesis without Phil Collins, Motley Crue without Tommy Lee, and Barry without the Manilow..... :D

Yeah, I would like to scout it out too. Supposedly, in addition to their modern amenities campsite, there is a tent-type, "roughing it" campsite and several miles of hill/wilderness hiking trails.

Thanks for the link. That certainly looks fun and challenging, but would require quite a lot physical conditioning before attempting. I would not attempt that event without having completed several months of training and progressively longer backpack hikes. In my case, in my current condition, I would need a bucket of Icy Hot, a yard of Moleskin patches, and a doctor's note telling my wife that I would not have a heart attack or at least a living will.... :lol:

I do think that our little bug-out, in its own humble way, could be helpful in eventually preparing for some event like that. Our goals will be gear familiarization, learning through practical application, some physical exertion, and, of course, to have fun. Our aim is to maximize participation and get people moving. Before you can run, you gotta be able to walk or in this carry a pack, do some moderate hiking, and just get familiarized with the concept of camping/bugging out.

Well, you got three months to train! :mrgreen:

I know that's not for everyone. They are going to be doing it annually now, so it could be a goal for next year. 15 miles w/ a ruck and rifle is a hell of a hike, even in October. The skills section of it looks fun. I spotted quickly in that 'unfasten bolts', and I don't have a way to do that in my bag other than a folding saw that can use a hacksaw blade. I doubt my multitool is big enough for the bolts.

Count me in for the scouting. I've been dying to get out lately.

Edit.

I've been to that park. Pretty nice place w/lots of river. If anyone is interested in fishing I will be doing some. I have plenty of extra gear so if you have a fishing license and need to borrow some let me know.

I dont feel I am qualified to teach, but I have a decent tarp and lots of paracord we can practice shelters on. I have been wanting to copy a ridge line setup I have seen floating around.

15 miles was our maintenance length hump/forced march in the Marines. We would usually start preparing by doing a series of squad-level training humps 3-5 miles, then a series of platoon/company level humps 6-10 miles, and lastly the battalion-level marches 12-15 miles. I did a few of the "Macress" length humps (25 miles) while in the Corps, but thankfully only a few as these were pure "Bataan Death March" madness.

I retired 6 years ago, so I haven't done much back-packing recently (I am a systems analyst...so I pack a mean laptop). Right now, I would be happy to do just a squad-level hump. :lol:

We're not looking for perfection. Perhaps, if you want to research the topic, you could present a class on what you have learned. We can work with your enthusiasm.

This thread is almost as cool as our last one. No dog shows though even though Dubbya tried to make the reference.

Fingas - I have a Medium ALICE pack and frame that I am looking to get rid of as well as a bunch of other gear if you are interested. I have found that you can only be in the acquisitions field for so long before you end up having way too much stuff that you can never use. One of these days I need to do a "For Sale" type thread and get rid of a bunch if it..
