i think we should plan a 3 or 4 day session next summer somewhere we could practice our skills and learn and teach and get to know each other network a bit. who would be interested in this

Great idea but they are hard to organize location is hard to centralize and the date needs to be set way out. I think the location should be some place on public wilderness so you can come as you wish and will know expencises more or less and don't need reservations which won't burden last minute cancels.

i agree that's why i am proposing now for next summer/early fall get every ones input come up with a location and take it from there.

It would depend on where we'd meet. I can't get a great deal of work off (maybe a week) so the max I could travel is maybe a day or two *sad face*

wareagle69
10-26-2007, 08:57 AM
well the first thing to do if find who is interested. then get a geographical look at where would best suit a meeting then recon the area(member who lives closest) then take from there..

wareagle69 ... Your suggestion sounds very interesting, and also practical (from the standpoint of actually putting all our combined skills and studies together to see what actually works, and what is unworkable). I agree with HOP and mitch, logistically speaking, it's going to be a real challenge. We have state lands that have the North Country Scenic Trail running through it, as well as a lot of somewhat remote woodlands. If the idea is to "practice", yet still have some not-too-distant medical help and/or sources of supplies, check out the Yankee Springs/Gun Lake area of Michigan's Lower Peninsula online. I'm not as familiar with the Hiawatha National Forest in the UP, but mitch should have a better handle on that area. Just a thought ... but it sounds like something I'd like to participate in, if possible. It would be a great "sounding-board" experience! NorthWind

I'd like to attend if it's alright with ya'll, bring my son and teach him in a setting where he could meet others who have the same intrests. Share some fireside tales, and practice our skills together. Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Kentucky, all seem good places to me. I can get a good detailed topo map of any park or area if given ample notice. Even Tennessee sounds good so it's close to everyone. Although I don't know where everyone lives. I can get the time off with no problem, and travel is not a problem either.
Anyway if I can help with anything let me know.

I would like to say that if I decide to attend this (most likely) I would be happy to pick up 1 or 2 along the way even remotely along the route ,it can be hard to juggle time off money and such . This is my treat and as long as you don't mind my dog (big but friendly) you would be welcome. I am retired and have my own schedule. I want to say that I don't care to go to Illinos because of the gun laws .

Are you taking guns on the trip?

If you CCW it is for the unsuspected need not the expected one if I expect troble or have to travel into or through unsafe areas I either don't go or use another route or carry I dought that a fire arm would be needed in camp or for camp use but if a person has convinced himself that he needs a CCW then he needs to carry or admit that the whole need is just silly carjackers don't know that we are going to make smores they like to prey on out of towners.

Beo
10-31-2007, 11:36 AM
Yeah, I guess your right. I just have this need to know, call it my curious nature, need to know or snoopyness, I cary off duty sometimes for the same reasons (especially here in Cincinnati), and am not opposed to carrying in the camp if it happens. But remember all state laws do not cross over, i.e. the ccw law for Kentucky does not apply here in Ohio so if one is caught carrying in Ohio with a ccw permit from Ky or any other states not in the common pact law that ohio has, they are charged with ccw. This law does mean that I (as a deputy sheriff) agree with it I am not sure on it as a common person, but on duty I have had to deal with it.
Plus some of the people that may attend the camp we know nothing about, does that mean you trust them with a firearm? Hmmm... good question... any thoughts.

Maybe a small caliber pistol for personal protection but rifles would not be needed at all. If someone wanted to bring their 22 to show off their mean squirrel-cooking skills, I'd say that's fine. But if someone pops out their double barreled 12g or scoped .50 ... well, I'd be concerned.

Why? Do small caliber pistols make people less dead than big guns? What about the land mine building seminar that FVR and WarEagle were going to facilitate? (Kidding of course) The reality is that whatever side of the border the chosen spot is on, some of us won't be bringing any firearms. It's too much of a pain in the patootey (oh yes, I said it!) to get them over the 49th parallel these days.

I'd suggest there's plenty that could be done with firearms, but for a gathering like this, not so much. Plenty we can do without them as well.

Beo

Well said and agreed Trax

MCBushbaby
10-31-2007, 09:29 PM
Well whenever I go to a national park or remote state park, I bring some kind of protection. In my area I'm lucky where there are no drug growers (that I know of or need be concerned over). But I have met some real dicks where I would've felt more comfortable with a firearm than with my fillet knife and a hatchet. You know... those redneck idiots who steal stuff right out of your camp while you sleep. yea.. it happened... and I tracked them down.

I said small caliber because I figured a small caliber sidearm could be used to hunt squirrel and whatnot. Whereas someone with a magnum has other intentions. ;)

Everyone brings good points to this forum, love it!
guns do not kill people, people kill people, the projectile just hurts like hell :)

trax
11-01-2007, 10:26 AM
Anyone out there wants to know how to skin and gut a deer or elk? I can't show 'em with a small caliber weapon. Well, I probably can, but I won't. So...what intentions would a person with a magnum have Mitch? I'm not trying to pick here and my other point...what if the agreed upon spot is up here in Canada? You're going to have a pain getting any firearms over the border and the same is true for Canadians trying to go south. What about some of our friends from "across the pond". Good luck! I just think the deal should be the same for everyone.

SemperParatus
11-01-2007, 11:36 AM
Seems to me that for the group to ban guns entirely would be akin to the knee jerk gun control activists. I'd be comfortable with a previously agreed upon code of conduct that would require everyone involved to be both legal and responsible. Buckskinner rendevous' come to mind. Black powder shoots make for great competition. Maybe some type of similar activity could give the guns an acceptable legitimacy. "Course it just takes one person making one foolish mistake to make a bad reflection on all. Accountability would be necessary.

OK, Otay's response works for me

MCBushbaby
11-01-2007, 01:24 PM
Ok, I'm going to put this in a single sentence because you are 'picking':

Someone bringing a survival rifle or pistol is different, and somewhat more acceptable, than someone bringing a purely anti-personnel weapon such as a 50cal, scoped 30-06 or magnum pistol.

I'm not saying this was a rule for the gathering, I'm just saying I'm not going to go if it turns into a gun show but it'd be fine for me if someone brought their Henry 22

Beo
11-01-2007, 01:27 PM
Man this turned into a gun debate. I say mitch is right. But also feel we don't need to bring anything larger than a .22 if you wanna carry. Geeeeeesh!!!

id love to go to a gathering and since i inherited a 2002 geo metro (tiny v3 that gets 20 KM per Litre) im not opposed to driving to Wisconsin or north/south Dakota or somewhere by there. also i think itd be a great idea to have a shooting or squirrel hunting competition , and maby even a big game hunt for those who want to. guns are only a bad thing if the wrong people are using them. its true geting firearms across the boarder is a bugger of a task so i wouldn't bother. heck we could have a meet in the USA and one in Canada some time later , diversify our outdoor knowledge so to speak.

So how many are interested in doing this? I think we should all think about it and come up with a plan to make it happen!

Gray Wolf
12-08-2007, 06:09 PM
So I guess that means I can't bring my M107 .50-caliber, to hit a 5 in small animal at a distance of almost 2 mi, and it would be dead before it heard that horrible sound, now that's more humane :-) and the bullet can pass through 1.2 inches of armor plating just in case he's wearing some.... But on a serious note, what about teaching or being taught, on making and using snares and different types of traps. Isn't that more inline with what this trip is about? The mountains of Tennessee or Kentucky sound great. But either way I'm in.

P.S. I don't have a problem with guns, but like it's been stated here before, a 22 cal would be enough unless it's a Grizz.

Rick
12-08-2007, 08:04 PM
Okay, here's a thought. Gray Wolf suggested Kentucky or Tennessee so what do you think about scheduling around a Civil War reenactor's event?

1. The group and/or visitor's bureau would probably openly welcome us.
2. We'd be around like minded people that understand wilderness skills or at least appreciate them (okay, tolerate them).
3. We could probably camp near the reenactors
4. It would be a fun event to watch
5. Just wanted a number 5 on here to make it look fluffy.

Great idea.... You could organize that in the Mt. Adams wilderness area. That is just north of the Columbia River Gorge area. I could help with scouting out an ideal area for that. The Mt. Adams wilderness area is a not so commercially overdone area that is ripe for camping etc. There are campgrounds but there is also wild areas. It is located within the Gifford Pinchot National Forest east of Mt. St. Helens.

Thinking further about this: You might need a private reserve to do this though. I know that survival schools have their own private property because some of the practices that they in the operations area. I could still scout around my area for something that could work (or not) and let you know, whoever is the leader on this.

Just remember, no matter where we decide to hold it, those traveling between Canada and U.S. will require documentation next year.

JANUARY 31, 2008
U.S. and Canadian citizens will need to present either a WHTI-compliant document, or a government-issued photo ID, such as a driverís license, plus proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate. DHS also proposes to begin alternative procedures for U.S. and Canadian children at that time.

For most folks the WHTI document is a passport. Otherwise, drag out that birth certificate.

I remember crossing the border at Buffalo, New York one time on business. Pre-911. I got the third degree from Canadian customs because I was packing a half dozen laptops in the back end. Searched the vehicle and the whole nine yards. Nose to nose informed me I was entering another country, not another state. Okay, calm down, I said. You're talkin' to a guest not a resident. (I'm a charmer, I know).

Comin' back into the States some guy with a 10 cent stogie was sitting in the customs booth on the U.S. side waving me through. "Just Hellfire missiles in the back", I chuckled as I drove straight into the U.S.

Then there was the customs station in AK at the continental divide that said. Customs station open 8-5. Please stand in front of camera after hours.

Boy, those days are sure gone.

How many days are we talking about? That's probably our first target.(?)

EDIT: What do you think about putting together a survival kit (or something similar) to be given away at the outing? We could do a similar thing to the pass around knife. Start with a kit bag, send it to the next person who would add an item and on to the next who would add another item and so on. We could keep a running list of the items placed in the kit on the forum and inside the kit so the next person would know what was already in the kit. Might save some time. Even set a limit on price so no one is out $700 for a Bear Grylls knife. (sorry). Drop everyone's name in a hat at the outing and draw a name for the winner.

Guns DO NOT kill people. . .PEOPLE kill people!!

Guns are an inanimate object. They do not breath, think, eat or live! Humans DO. They (humans) are the thoughts behind killing! You can call a gun every name in the book and it will just lay there without still, no movement, nothing!

So how is it guns kill people?? :confused: :rolleyes:

People don't kill people, guns kill people. If you sat there saying "bang, bang" I don't think too many people would drop dead ;)

If the technique is known, one could easily kill with but the tip of their finger.

So there's going to be a hootenanny, eh? I'm game.

You ain't killing anyone with just the tip of your finger, be serious, all the mystical asian death touch techniques aren't what you think. You might be able to kill someone with your finger if you drove it into their neck (throat) maybe. But just striking someone with your finger ain't gonna kill them. Sorry Grasshopper.

the bullets can not do it on their own,it is just another pawn in a game played by humans.

01-28-2008, 10:58 AM
Listen here's my take on this. People kill people not the guns, the person shooting has made the choice to pick the gun up and pull the trigger, the bulet hits another person and that person may or may not die from the wound. The person picked up the gun and made the choice the gun did not make the choice for the person. Thus people kill peole, if you go by the thought of guns kill people then why punish the shooter for the crime, and then people don't stab people, knives stab people, people don't hit people the stick hit him. NO people choose there actions not the weapons.

Anyhoo, back on topic - I'm definitely interested in the meet, but according to Mapquest, Sudbury ON is almost 1,700 miles from me, one-way. My old battlebus has 275,000+ miles on him already and I'm not sure I'd want to put him through that kind of trip. Nor do I fancy spending the best part of a week's vacation driving there and back.

Which is your closest airport Wareagle, Toronto or Ottowa?

You should be fine with your passport and green card*. Although if you're under 18, it probably wouldn't hurt to have a note from your folks saying they're cool with it.

* Unless you're in the process of renewing your Green Card or changing your residency status. The INS usually want you to advise them prior to leaving the country in that case.

Or, in my case, "Watch me jump through the air and chop that tree limb off with my machete and not almost cut my leg off." I did both, chopped off the tree limb and put a six inch long gash down my shin and another up the thigh. Very lucky that I was already pulling back when it contacted my leg. It wasn't a deep cut in the least. I was very fortunate to not have to pay more than that for my stupidity. By stupidity I mean idiotic stupidity.

Rick
02-09-2008, 09:18 AM
Actually, no. Burned a little but not much pain.

I have worked with chain saws forever. Worked tree crew for a bit back when my company actually did that and we carried chain saws on the line trucks. Been through the safety courses and all that jazz.

So I have this little maple tree in the front yard I decided to get rid of and replace it with a dogwood. My wife is yacking about no reason to cut the tree down. yadda yadda. Yes, dear. I go get the saw. Bzzzzz. Chainsaw comes out and down comes the tree. I trim up the brush and I'm down to the very last cut. Last cut! Just a touch to remove a tiny limb and that thing kicked back and the chain smacked me in the face, ran down by neck into my chest where the engine died. My shirt actually killed the engine. Kicked like a mule. I have never been hit in the face that hard.

It takes a couple of seconds for the lights to stop flickering and me to figure out what had just happened. The saw is jammed to my chest (muffler side out, thank goodness) and I grab my neck with my free hand to check on how much blood is spurting. Lots of blood. Lots and lots of blood but I didn't strike oil so I'm okay. Do a quicky triage and see I'm gonna live so off comes the shirt and the saw. Not a pretty picture at this point but could have been worse.

I walk over to the front door, which is open.

"Dear," says I. "Can you come here a minute?"
"I'm busy," she says.
Of course. She would be.
"But I really do need you to come here."
"I said I'm busy. You come inside."
"Well, I can't because of the blood."
That caught her attention. So she's walking down the hall to the door, sees the shape I'm in and starts chewin' me out about cutting down the tree. I just stand there and listen, still bleeding mind you, until she finishes.

"Yes, dear. You're right. Now, if you're done chewin' me out can you drive me to the emergency room?" (I might add she's an RN so she knew I wasn't dieing.)

Several hours later and a lot of stitches later I was cleaning up the debris left from the tree and even attended my MBA class that night.

The worst part (beyond the initial kick) was the shots to put my cheek back together. Filleted. Nice and clean, too. Great surgeon. Lady. While she sewed me up she chewed me out for not listening to my wife. Women 2, chain saw 1, Twinkie -3.

All in all turned out okay. Needless to say, that saw disappeared and one with a brake is now in my garage.

No man will ever hit me as hard as that saw did but I still stood. Kinda proud of that. Ar, ar, ar, as Tim the Toolman would say.

Great and interesting story. I don't mess w/ chainsaws often, I enjoy using an ax (mor exercise)

I suppose my worst one would be when I was seeing how fast I could drive a motorcycle on a dirt road in Finland (this was before I was of legal age). When I fell, I was in the middle of nowhere so I had to drive to my grandpa's house (closest house I knew), before I was driven to the emergency room. That was pretty damn hard. I had to pick up the motorcycle and ride with blood dripping all over (the bike rolled after I fell and didn't hit anything, so it was drivable). My grandpa was out fishing his girlfriend drove me to the hospital. But I was cleaned up pretty well, and they just assumed I was of legal age at the hospital so I didn't get in any trouble (In Finland the government pays for it if you are under 18, so they don't have you sign any papers or anything besides stating you are under 18).

Kemperor
02-10-2008, 04:49 PM
I'm not too fond of using chainsaws either. I'd rather use a regular handsaw, if the tree's small enough, or one of those two people saws for bigger trees. Granted it takes longer, but it's generally safer.

After I cut my leg with my machete, I knew it wasn't serious, and my buddy is an EMT and also in the Army, going to Iraq soon, and came and made sure everything was alright. I had already cleaned it up with my first aid kit and gauzed it and everything. I could've used a couple stitches in a couple of places. My girlfriend at the time scolded the **** out of me and everything. I laughed about it the entire time and it was pretty funny. If you can't laugh at your own stupidity or, in Rick's case, accidental misfortunes, you have no room to laugh at anyone else's.

we should all first meet at some easily recognizable spot beforehand that is near WE's place. like the intersection of the 2 nearest roads or a donut shop / whatever. somewhere that can be found on mapquest. that way no one will get lost as long as they follow the directions.....

lol candid you got me interested so i pulled out my old cope of 'Black Medacine, The Dark Art of Death' by Dr. N Mashiro.

in the head there are 3 fatal striking points with a strong enough thumb jab.
the Glabbela , 1/2 an inch above the bridge of the nose is a small bone directly connected to the brain, any strong force here will be transfered directly into the frontal lobes of the brain.
eyeball , if the eye is gouged out the only thing guarding the brain is a paper thin layer of bone. this can be penetrated with a pencil , knife , or even stiffened fingers.
Occipital bone (cerebellum) located in the center of the back of the head where muscles attack to the bone, a blow here results in direct concussion to the brain

the neck is much more venerable

heres my fav one... vertebral artery , an extremely rare but ALWAYS fatal injury , a blow to the side of the neck may break the fragile bone rings surrounding the artery. the result is instant loss of consciousness followed by certain death in less then 5 seconds

there are plenty of ways too kill someone with a finger ...

Marcraft - That was about the funniest thing I've read in a while. Thanks!

First of all, an injury to the Frontal Lobe is seldom fatal. It's an area of the brain that controls personality not life functions. Ever heard of a frontal lobotomy? By the way, bones don't connect directly to the brain. Boneheads aren't real.

Why would you go to all the trouble of gouging out an eye then go rummaging through your junk drawer..."hold on buddy".....to find a pencil to jab him to death? Wouldn't you just stab him with the pencil first?

You can jab my occipital all day long with your thumb and I dare say the best you're going to get is a very sore thumb and tick me off. You had better be highly trained in the art of "One Thumb Chi" if you are going to whack me into concussion land.

I will give some lee way on the cervical whack. But damage to a cervical vertebrae does not mean damage to the artery and instant death. Vertebrae are pretty tough things surrounded by equally tough muscle. Not fragile as your book suggests.

But thanks for an entertaining post. That was fun.

Why so much violence from some of our younger members?

Because when I lived in Pennsylvania, we had on average a fight each week (usually over drugs or a girl) where someone was taken to the hospital and the other to the police station. Keep in mind that this was middle-school (age 12-14)

I've lived in some pretty violent places. And I can say with plenty of evidence that it can at least leave the guy unconscience.

I don't think any of us foresaw the price of fuel being this high. That's awfully prohibitive for a lot of folks. Myself included.

As a side note, I saw on FOX (you can believe them, right?) that the price of gas would plummet after the Olympics.

thats ok just was wondering about the hunting thing, for me its about primitive skills anyhow unless it was blakc powder i would not personally endorse it but thats just me, some before had wanted to turn it into a shooting competition not my cup of tea, had my fill of shooting things in the military, i see the gathering as a place to share ideas and learn others trade secerts and practice with others more knowledgeable about certain things, but like i said if its just me and palerider here then hopefully trhis will grow from humble beginings.
