going on a retreat in MN with group of men in the  Audubon Center north of the twin cities.

I look forward to this.   I grew up in northern MI and I am used to being out in the middle of no where.

cool group I had to learn about plants and stuff to eat where I grew up in summer camp it was fun

science teacher also told us things we could eat if stranded somewhere.

I have read several news articles lately where people were stranded in the woods for 60+ days, some found alive some not. My first observation was no one was looking for them in  these areas becasue they never told anyone where they were going to be. In Hunter Education classes we teach the youth to not hunt alone (regardless of age), to tell other people where you will be at and when you plan to return. We use the phrase "Plan Your Hunt and Hunt Your Plan".  T alking with Search & escue presonnel, the majority of people that make plans and get lost are usually found in the first 24 hours. Just something to think about.

Just saw this group on here and as it alligns with my interest in bushcraft and the outdoors then I thought I'd join up.
I have a blog on the subject at http://woodcrafterslog.blogspot.com/ and I've written about survival kits and techniques there.

I must apologize that I have not updated this group, as I am now on the road most of the time with limited internet access. Please feel free to add content to your hearts content.

Hey, I'm new here, I have always been interested in wilderness survival specifically. great to be a part of this group and I'm looking farward to discussions about survival.
Comment by Carl M on February 18, 2010 at 11:12pm
I was reading a "survival tip" to include a hot melt glue stick in your pack. Supposedly you can use a any heat source like a wooden match or lighter to melt the glue stick to make repairs. If it sticks as well to other materials as it does my fingers it may just work. Anyone have any experience with this?

DH, yeah i love to watch those shows. There are several out there. You learn some things and it's entertaining watching someone else do that stuff from the comfort of your own home!

Vegetarian Camp Food

Hey all!  New to the forum, but longtime reader of AoM (podcast is awesome on long drives).My wife and I love camping (though with our work schedules, we don't get to do it as often as we want).  She is a vegetarian (just doesn't like the taste of meat - I know, right?)  I'm looking for some good hearty camp food that she would enjoy.  Anyone got any ideas?See More
