    Thumbs up Hardwoodsman tab skill posts

    Post your skill achievements here.
    The how-to and requirements thread can be found here
    http://www.bushcraftusa.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=47683


    Everything in the previous thread that was posted is a no-go except for Josh's psk over-nighter. That's a go, You can repost it here if you want Josh.


    And remember, guys you know if you half assing it (pardon my language). Like my old drills used to say, if you're half assing it you're only hurting yourself. This is about training that will keep you alive or keep you out of trouble.
    I reserve the right to no-go whatever looks like a no-go to me. I'm sure it will upset some but just remember that if you do earn the tab then you won't have slouches in your ranks because of the strict requirements.
    So have fun and get it done!

    NOW HEAR THIS: ANOTHER RULE CHANGE

    Or modification, whatever you want to call it.

    There will be TWO hardwoodsman tabs. One will be the plain one like I posted, the other will have a gold oak leaf beside the Hardwoodsman. The gold tab will be for Videos only. Video is the next best thing to me being there on some of these so they will be held to a higher standard. If you shoot video make sure you don't edit important parts out(like getting an ember). You can speed up the video but don't edit something out that might be important.
    Also this whole thing is arbitrary and at my discretion on what gets a go and what doesn't so in that spirit there will be some guys who use still pics that I might award the gold tab to. I reserve that right. If they display all things I think are required in their pics then they will be bumped up.

    Now for "the way it is" talk.
    If it chaps your rear that video takes precedence over still pics, don't enter this course.
    If it chaps you rear that I might bump some guys with still pics up to the gold tab, don't enter this course.
    If it chaps your rear that I might no-go a video you spent all day on, don't enter this course.
    Most of all, have fun, practice these skills as hardcore as you can and you'll get more than patch at the end.
    That's the way it is and that is all.

    Hope this meets the muster....lol

    I had an interesting time. Its hard to tell by the pics, but it rained off and on while I was out, combined with the fact that I only had about 45 minutes of sleep last night on the ambulance. Actually Ive worked 50 hours in the past 3 days. So I was pretty fatigued. Which for once is a good thing, because I think its good to train fatigued sometimes. Teaches you to be sharp when you arent your sharpest. lol Anyways, I was hoping to get some wet fatigued firecraft on, but even though it rained good yesterday, and on and off while I was out, I wanted to get soaked. Didnt happen, but I did use my fleece to protect my prep while it was raining. This is where a good location really shines. That cedar grove really is a dry place when its raining. Still though I did splitwood fire, 3x the prep. One chunk of wood I was using split really tough, and had a spicy scent. Kinda like captain morgan...lol Not sure what it was, kinda reminded me of that sassafras we used in indiana, but it seemed harder. It was nice to get out for a bit after wgettin stomped at work yesterday, and sitting designing and cutting the patterns for the shepards hook hawk and SERE bolo im sheathing. Of course ya cant waste good coals, so I brewed up a cup o Joe and had a cigar. Maybe it will pour on me tomorow. lol

    Time for me to be a hardass. Sorry, bro this is a no-go. You have to start three separate fires with the prep you make. I gotta see each fire going.
    It's the only way to ensure that people get the idea of exactly what three times the prep is.
    Now go get some dad gum rest.
