Re: QUESTION: Suggestions for ORs
- Hey John,
Welcome, glad you've decided to poke around a bit more and contribute
to the gear madness!
I'm not a moderator or a staff member, just a lowly tester <Grin>, but
I'd say you have a good idea for a place to start. My first OR was on
a knife and it was a good starting point for me. There was enough to
it that I started to learn about the depth required for reports but at
the same time easy enough to keep me from getting overwhelmed and
What the ByLaws are really getting at is not to get in over your head.
Tents and packs are some of the first things that a lot of people
think of but they really are complicated. I'd recommend contacting the
Mentor Coordinator and getting setup with a mentor (mentor (at)
backpackgeartest.org). It was the first thing I did, and I can't tell
you how helpful it was.
