Field Craft weekend Jan 2-3 2016

Allan Swayze will be hosting a weekend of classic East Wind style field craft training exercises tailored to the specific training needs of Swift Fox attendees the weekend after next.

Show up bright and early next Saturday, January 2nd at the Roby Lake trailhead of Paddy Creek Wilderness for an overnight event. Best part: It's free!

Everyone must bring the following items, and remember you are light infantry, so everything you carry has to be packed in your ruck:

  • Rucksack 
  • Sleeping gear
  • Sleeping pad
  • Shelter half, plasch or bivy bag
  • Rain gear
  • Properly fitted boots
  • Properly fitted uniform
  • compass
  • Red filtered flashlight
  • Mess kit and silverware
  • Capacity to carry a minimum of 2 liters of water on your person
  • Boo boo kit (Bandaids, ibuprofen, antacids, allergy meds, whatever)
  • Spare pair of socks
  • Clothing appropriate to the weather
  • Pen and paper (suggest waterproof pad and a pencil)

For more details, directions, to say you are going, ask questions and coordinate travel, see the thread on the Operation: East Wind forum
