    Agree - great thread. While our main focus is staying put as our BOL, you're reminding me that alternative plans should be given serious thought too.

    Good thread, I have read about this particular subject before here but really hadn't given it much thought about getting to the "BOL". I guess I ought to. I'd have to cross several fields and several highways to get there by foot so it bears thinking about.
    Thanks for bring this to my attention.

    Negative, it's something that may have to be dismantled if circumstances require me to cross the property in a straight line. Thus the new tool in my bag.

    [A piece of property that was easy to cross previously now has some man-made obstacles to it, requiring a complete reworking of my plans and making me add a tool to the gear I would take on that route.]

    Could this obstacle serve as cover/concealment?
    O.W.

    Route recon: don't be complacent!

    I am sure we all have routes planned for various reasons, whether it be a hasty E&E route, a longer route to a meeting place, or a way just to get around a geographic obstacle.

    I admit that after initially establishing some routes, I had become a bit complacent. I never went back and re-checked the feasiblity of some plans I had made. Today I decided to check out some of my foot routes and I discovered that I needed to modify one of them. A piece of property that was easy to cross previously now has some man-made obstacles to it, requiring a complete reworking of my plans and making me add a tool to the gear I would take on that route.

    I'm just passing on the suggestion that now that warmer weather is upon us (here in the northeast at least), it may be a good idea to re-check things and re-evaluate plans. You never know what may be changed that will necessitate a change in your plans.
Working...
