Had a pretty good turn-out to camp in the cold this past weekend. Both nights went into the 20″s with clear skies and plenty of frost. You’d be surprised just how much wood you have to burn overnight to stay warm. The deer were pacing around, wanting their field back, and the coyotes sang half the night. Everybody got a little range time. Topics discussed were med-kits, land-nav, secure comms, and a little of unit history (this starts our eighth year). Learned that FTX can also stand for Field Training Experiment.

November FTX will commence at 1300 on the 8th. The forecast for the weekend is typical November weather – clear and near freezing at night but sunny and 65 during the day. Bring your compass (and your GPS if you need one to check your positions). And don’t forget to bring something for “Show and Tell”. If you need directions, contact Eric.
October FTF went well. Not quite a dozen showed for a wrap up of radio configurations and the re-cap of the NC PATCON earlier in the month.
