Training – Base Camp Set-Up
Dates: Friday evening, March 5th, through Saturday morning
Location: Walsh Lake area
Staging: YKSAR will stage from the SARbay
For 2021 this overnight exercise will replace the monthly callout drill and also serve as a substitute for the checkpoint support that YKSAR has been providing to the Frostbite-50 for the past number of years.
This exercise will simulate the logistics effort needed to support a search team in the field.
On Friday participants will set up a basecamp consisting of…
1 McPherson wall tent
1 Kifaru Teepee
1 pop-up shelter
Cots, tables, stoves, power for each tent
Comms system including repeater tower
On Saturday morning the camp will be demobilized
All gear packed and inventoried
Tents dried at SARbay
YKSAR members may campout at the basecamp overnight. COVID-19 restrctions at the time will determine how many campers will be permitted to stay.
