Buuurrrrrrrr, Its cold out there

I went out in the woods this weekend.  It was a great time.  The temperatures were in the low 20's.
We were not to far off the beaten path but still had a few challenges to overcome. 
There were plenty of coats, hats and gloves.  Everyone there had a hat and gloves.  The food was never ending.  Almost everyone slept warm (it was not from lack of sleeping bags).  No ones vehicle broke down.  No was was hurt.  The kids even started their fire with flint and steel.

Sounds like a great weekend.  It was wonderful!  We left with around 20 young men and a few old farts for a weekend of cold weather fun.  We had a great time.  Some of the group went on a 2 mile hike and some went on a 10 mile hike.  everyone made it back safe and sound.  Sunday we had a religious time and headed home.  Kids were happy and warm.  The adults were glad to be home and ready to hear the kids start to tell about their adventures.  I was another successful weekend trip.

What makes this fit into a preparedness blog? 

Everything went smooth because everyone was prepared for the weather and the activity's.  We had already thought of what we would need and what could happen.  We planned ahead.

As you start this new year out with you new ideas on life try to plan for a little more than last year.  Get out and do a little more skills practice and learn something new.

I hope you have a great year!!!

Lets get ready!!!
