Oranizing an outing

Getting a group into the woods is often more difficult than going solo. The camaraderie certainly makes the group trip worthwhile and it gives a whole new dynamic to the woods.

You'll see far less wildlife in a group than you will when going solo. You'll also feel quite a bit safer when strangers enter your camp uninvited. Yes, it has happened.

Finding the right group to go into the woods is even harder than just finding a group. The chemistry among the group is, in my opinion, more important than the common goal. If you want to enjoy your time in the woods you'll heed this advice:

If a person joins the group and causes friction between two or more members of the group, that person must go. He or she will ruin the experience for all involved.

Make no ifs, ands, or buts about it. That person must no longer be welcomed nor invited on group outings. Perhaps a few weeks of solo trips will force him/her to reconsider his/her attitude...

Thanks for reading,

I couldn't agree more. I much prefer solo outings, although I do take a colleague to bushmoots as there's more people to integrate with anyway.
