A good friend and I have been planning a three day weekend trip up the mountain near Timothy Lake in the MT Hood National Forest since the end of last year. We've been raiding all the local sporting goods and surplus stores for all the things we didnt have, and counting the days down until the snow cleared up past around 5000 feet so we could get into our area. We want to only pack the basics, and spend the weekend hunting small game and fishing, and only eating what we kill. We'll make camp at night, and move during the day, and try to hone our outdoor survival skills. Yesterday, we finally were able to get into and scout the area we will be going, after fighting spotty snow and cutting logs out of the road. Hopefully we'll be getting up there within the next few weeks to do the survival weekend, and I wanted to start a thread that I could come back to and let you all know how it went and maybe post some pics. Im going to try and hone old skills, and put newly learned ones to use for the first time, it should be a blast!!
