Wow, a lot of time has elapsed since part 2 of this series, and I apologize for the delay.
I was going to discuss how to find research areas, but I will hold off on that as it's own separate article.
Randy Savig wrote an excellent article last week about why you should go on an expedition, I would recommend you read that article too.
Let's discuss how to plan for an expedition for your group now. For the MABRC, it's a lengthy process that begins with setting a date for the expedition and the location. This is usually done several months in advance so that people can begin making plans to attend and begin putting the resources together to be used on an expedition. There is also two different types of expeditions that the MABRC holds, one is the general expedition, where everyone that wants to attend may. The other is the specialized expedition, in which, those members with special skill-sets are asked to go along and not opened to the general membership.
Always remember the following!!
- Summary of the area
- Summary of the objective
- Sunrise/set data
- Moonrise/set data
- Moon phase data
- Weather outlook, must be updated starting 10 days prior to the expedition from weather.com and must be posted on the forum thread for the expedition planning.
- Site selection
- Background information for area, including any suspected Bigfoot activity.
- Topo maps/aerial photos of the target area.
- Primary objectives
- Secondary objectives
- Standby objectives
- Personnel requirements/skill sets needed along with role determinations for participants.
- Equipment requirements
- Expedition rules/land-owner rules.
