This would kind of break the habit of the last few & hopefully mix things up a bit, or it may become stale
...while letting a large portion of us here to participate that can not otherwise (physical disabilities etc)
not everyone is solely humping out on foot either & our plans are designed around such
bugging out has more then one meaning
Last contest we had a horse and a bike. The winner posted a video of the truck ride and even good winter road tips. I posted my truck during the winner 2011 contest and I think Kyle posted his motorcycle. This is kinda old hat so not sure why we need a contest for what anyone could do during some of the contests in the past. The more specific the ideas like....10 item rules...... WW2 to Vietnam area only gear …or whatever the less ideas and entries will be shown.
On the flip side the more general the rules the harder the administration and judging.
Not to be rude but there is a very narrow mindset here when it comes to mock bug out contests
Seems like the mentality is that you are allowed to use your vehicle to bug out to a location in all of these, but it can not be the center of your bug out plans per se, a base camp etc, you have to leave it & go off on foot elsewheres
I am proposing a bug out contest where the vehicle is the center aspect, instead of humping into some remote location you go there by the vehicle of your choice and do your thing
You still have to use certain skills like the other styles regardless, fire starting, water procurement etc
Either way, those who want to do a vehicle bug out contest can do that & the others do there thing on foot too
Maybe a new thread on that would be best
