Badlands Fieldcraft

A friend of mine recently sent this to me and I think it’s a great resource for current Fieldcraft ideas. It appears to have been compiled very recently by Marines stationed down in my old stomping ground’s at the Deuce Nasty, or Twentynine Palms.

I’m glad there’s still people dedicated to writing down the lessons learned by so many in the field. Sadly so much information like this disappears after time if it isn’t written down.

I especially love the quote on the back cover: “The more you know, the less you carry.”

NO, THE SKY AIN’T FALLING

BUT JUST IN CASE IT DOES…

 

Some practical advice on how to plan for emergencies.

I can tell you from experience that instead of planning for that BLM/ANTIFA Mob to storm your property you SHOULD be planning for the next Hurricane, Flood or Tornado.

It’s simple math! Get Practical and Prepared!

Example: Two weeks ago my part of Texas got it’s first snow in over a decade. The day we got the most snow (5 inches) also happened to be the coldest day of the year for Texas (27 degrees F with a wind chill of 22 Degrees F!) Well just to make things interesting our Power decided to go out at 8pm on a Sunday night and did not come back on until 2pm the next Day (18 hour blackout). Can you say Oh Shit! 😱

Luckily, I had serviced my generator, had plenty of gas on hand and had all my extension cords ready to go in their own bag. So we glided through an emergency that if we had not been prepared would have gotten pretty damn chilly and uncomfortable!

Junk on the Bunk: Cold Weather Clothing and Layering

Badlands Fieldcraft

Randy’s mom could teach us all a thing or two about layering..

We need to “dress for success” to be effective in extreme conditions. Our clothing choices become more important the harsher the climate and longer we intend to stay out in the bush. Since winter is upon us I’d like to share my lessons learned on cold weather clothing.

I don’t treat my clothing any different than I would any other tools; they need to be the right tool for the job to start with. I judge all my tools by how they perform and not by how they look or any other bias’. Whenever people discuss gear there always seems to be bias (caliber debates anyone?), but I really do try to avoid it as best I can. As MSG Dan Morgan said, we have to be ruthless in our gear selection.

Badlands Fieldcraft: No Matter What Happens

This appeared on 5 NOV at Badlands Fieldcraft. Man Up. -NCS It’s the morning after the election and there’s not a clear cut winner, and it looks like things will no doubt get messy as the results get ironed out. Whichever way the winds blow over the next week or so, I’m unaffected. Of course…

With the current rash of crowd/mob behavior, this is good information to store away in the hard drive.
