Poll Results and a New Poll

Our last poll asked "Will you get out to the wilderness and away from society this summer?"
Your answers:
  • 19 people (48%) said they have an overnight camping trip planned.
  • 12 people (30%) said they head out camping or backpacking for a week at a time.
  • 1 person (2%) said they take multi-week wilderness trips during the summer.
  • 7 people (17%) said the closest they get to the wilds is a low budget hotel.

While some people will just flat out refuse to even go camping for one night, I can not over emphasize the fact that taking your BOB out for a night or two in the woods will provide a very valuable preparedness experience.

Be sure to take our new poll>>>


  1. Excellent point about taking your BOB into the wild before you actually need it. Excellent way to find out what is lacking, what works, and what needs improvement.

  2. Not only did I get the opportunity to spend the last 5 days camping out on the river, but the gold (sluicing)was pretty good also!

  3. Good idea Anon--get some camping and "roughing it" done while at the same time, make some money!
