I have two things to talk about today and they are both pretty fun.
1 – Scenarios
OK so what is this about? Well it’s an opportunity and we’ll see how it goes. I spend a lot of time testing gear, testing myself, trying things, and most of the time I do it alone. I don’t mind doing these things alone, sometimes that’s best as I can concentrate on what I’m doing. Plus a lot of the time what I’m doing is not very pleasant, like sitting by a tree all night while it rains at 36 degrees or minus 4 degrees with a thin light blanket. Let’s face it, I like bad weather, it’s been like that since I was a kid, um did I say since I was a kid, perhaps there’s still a little of that going on in my head. Gear testing is just that, it’s when you find out your great idea has a fatal flaw, at 2 am. But it’s all gotta be done and I love doing it. Anyway here’s the deal, I thought of this; at times when I don’t mind someone coming along, I’ll post on here a Scenarios Alert and tell what I’m doing, when and where. If you would like to go along, at your own risk of course (he smiles), we can work that out. At times there may be a week or two of notice, other times it may be a few hours. Result, you may have an opportunity to have a little extra fun in the outdoors. Sometimes if I’m testing gear, I may have some extra you can try, other times you can watch me, and you can bring whatever you would like. So if you see a post with a Scenarios Alert in it, start getting excited, let the adrenaline run wild, then come and join me. The wife would probably like me to have someone with me once in a while, so she’ll sleep better, and that’s a big plus for me. I don’t know how frequent these will be we’ll just have to see how it goes.
2 -The Summer Rendezvous
We have decided not to try to grow it to a bigger and bigger size group. We like it small, so we are limiting the group size to just 10, not counting us. We like the smaller group for this, it’s more personal and we get to know each other better. There is more time to test things, teach and learn. As always the Rendezvous are somewhat informal other than we like to have a scenario to work with, some good food and some skills to learn.
Date: Friday August 26th starting in the afternoon and going about 24 hours to Saturday afternoon
Location: Hobble Creek Canyon at Springville, UT
Free, no charge, just get there. Come and be one of the first to try out our new PSP or Personal Survival Poncho. It is going on the market shortly. It’s a nice Poncho, a Tarp, and a very nice Hammock all in one. It’s great!!
