Random Thoughts or Advice:
1. Keep your wits when you get lost. And you will get lost.
2. Carry matches and a flashlight at all times.
3. Watch out for wussies that go to sleep at 8 pm and wake the camp at 6am. Real men drink and tell stories around the fire until after midnight. We have to pay the price in the AM. Net sleep time is the real indicator.
4. Never give up no matter how hard the trail is. You will make it.
