Pooh Trail MapWe will be hiking about 4 miles out to our campsite so this will not be car camping. Everything that you have there will be carried by you in one trip. In a real SHTF scenario, there will likely be many more miles involved and many more nights. This event is to give you a better idea of how to prepare for that real situation. Do your best to prepare for yourself but we are a team so expect reasonable mutual aid.
Things to consider:
• Weather on the hike and while you sleep. Expect it to be wet. Temperature – It will likely get down to 50° and may dip into the 40°’s.
• Water – You need to bring some water and the ability to purify it for resupply. Water is too bulky and heavy to carry all that you need for drinking and cleaning.
• Food – Simple and quick and non-refrigerated.
• Personal items for when nature calls
• Add Mole Skin in your IFAK for blistered feet
