Our goal here is to provide the best information how to deal with internal and external threats to your health. But why?

 

FIELD GRADE
Our greater goal is to attain "Field Conditioning." Field Conditioning is an advanced state of fitness where we are capable of moving and operating effectively across great distances over all types of terrain, at high or low altitude, in hot, cold, wet, or dry conditions over extended time spans, under all seasonal conditions, while carrying the weight required to withstand these environmental conditions, feed ourselves well, and safely reach our goal. 

In "Field" status we can take some shots and keep rocking. But this is an "ideal" state of conditioning that is typically achieved by well-trained backpackers during their trips.

The reason is that it takes a four-season schedule of wilderness engagement to maintain field conditioning all year round. During certain times of the year we may only be able to maintain "gym" fitness, which is a few levels below "Field" status.

At other times will will slide below "gym" status, with injury & obligations pulling us off the path.
