The focus on the March trip will be to try and complete as many requirements as possible of the Wilderness Survival merit badge, under the guidance of Registered Maine Guide Lou Falank. We will have a wood stove heated cabin for Friday night and emergency back up for Saturday night. The wilderness survival trip is mostly held outside and is geared to how to keep yourself alive if stranded out in the woods: making fire with no matches, creating your own shelter out of sticks, etc. One such requirement is to spend a night outside in a shelter you built. However there is nothing in the requirement that says you can’t use a sleeping bag so the plan is to use zero degree winter bags from the AMC.
