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.”

Cutting All Comms?

FCC ENFORCEMENT BUREAU SENDS:

Now it appears besides social media old reliable HAM sets and operators are under attack from the Communist Swamp Creatures and their Stasi henchman in “Law Enforcement”.

When unjust people populate the corridors of power, the “Law” is just another weapon for them to execute their immoral will which always leads to TYRANNY.

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.

Having lived, worked and trained most…

From a reader:

Just read your post on questions to ask a guerilla. One point not listed is that everyone is good at something. Identify what they are good at, and apply them. There are sleeper guys out there with skills a normal person would never think of. So ask the team applicants, what are you good at? In Afg, I was yackin one day with a Marine. He was assigned to the 155 battery at Kajaki dam. Turns out, the Marine had designed, and implemented the whole power grid for Southern California, in his real life. The Marines had him running a 155 unit??? In short order, a full understanding, and redesign of the Helmand Province power grid was at the Generals disposal. All from just yackin with the passenger in the seat next over.
