One big lesson I learned is practise with what you're taking with you into the field.

Yeah it seems like a good idea on a late fall 24 hour Op to take 2 tarps, a sleeping bag, 200 feet of rope, two primaries, a secondary, 3 full MRE's, 5 liters of water + 3L in a camelbak, propane, extra clothes and socks, plus normal kit when I was sitting in my living room and then a quick walk around the back yard to see how it felt.

It was a very different thing to then hump a kilometer and a half in pitch black conditions in the middle of muskoka.

Being a fat fuck didn't help either and Yes Gato I have PTT for my comms ;-)
