    Having spent up to 42 nights straight through in the woods in a tent on a wildlife study project (though my pick-up was close by), I can say that the LESS you have to keep up with, the better off you will be. With a little practice you'll find that you really don't need much!

    If you really want to go minimalistic, just take a mirror. Then, when you're somewhere in the woods and can't figure out how to get back to camp, just look in the mirror and see who's lost.

    Well, how did last weekends hunting and camping trip work out?

    Hmm. If he does not post back, should we send a search party, and assume he did not pack the needed supplies?

    Did anyone tell him to take his lap top?

    Darn!

    Maybe with the new, higher paying job that he started a week ago, he couldn't get the time off?:confused:

    Close as to the reason I haven't had much time on the web but the weather didn't permit me to go out last weekend. It was in the low 90's and humid as hell that day and then poured rain in the evening and all night. Definitely wouldn't have been a good time. I have to work tomorrow morning but I still may go after work at least.

    Try no fire... really!

    Out here in Wyoming, critters are used to smelling wood burning. They don't seem to have any fear or avoidance of a wood fire. That's been my experience here anyway. Tobacco smoke is an entirely different thing....
