    Here's the deal;
    I need volunteers. I'll start with five and if it shows interest I'll add a slot or two.

    THE FIVE VOLUNTEERS.
    1) @Primordial
    2) @MrFixIt
    3) @ManyHammers
    4) @Red Yeti
    5) @GreyOne
    6) @Quinlan
    7) @Skeptiksks
    8) @Johnny Bearclaw
    9) @FIELDCRAFTLTC

    Each willing and able individual who steps up to participate will recieve a small group of items in the mail.
    These are not top dollar items, just a selection of useful things that are yours to keep. After you've participated in what you're volunteering for..

    As a teaser, this pouch is what you would receive;

    IMG_7481.JPG

    Upon receipt, peruse the contents and incorporate it into your woods kit in a way that allows you to quickly access and use it.

    The task is simple; you will formulate a task, challenge OR project using at least one item in the pouch.
    (Not all items may inspire a task, some are simply included for your participation and as a possibility for action)

    Write up a challenge and post it in this thread, tagging myself and your fellow volunteers.
    Then we will all complete the posted challenge using the appropriate piece(s) of gear.

    I will post the first (and example) challenge once all volunteers have their baggie.

    There be action here.

    Greetings,

    Sounds interesting, I would like some more information please.:)
    Is it a pass-on challenge where you complete it and send the package to the next one in line? Also, how much time do we have to complete our part of the challenge?

    Regards,

    Christos
