The Alps 2016. A small fire with its glow separated me from impenetrable darkness. In the background, all I could hear was the disturbing sound of a sliding rock avalanche, and each murmur seemed to be a bear that had smelled my provisions. Years later, I still cannot imagine that night without a fire that was lit before. Hearth, i.e. the place where the fire will burn, must be secured against the uncontrolled spread of flames. Leaves, sticks and other flammable objects lying on the ground must be removed to form a circle of bare earth. Particular attention should be paid to dry grass that can spread fire in no time.
In wild terrain, the weather conditions can change suddenly and unexpectedly, so I try to dress in a layered system. Thanks to this, I am able to prevent cooling down or overheating of the body, reacting immediately to any weather breakdown. The clothing layers allow you to regulate the body temperature by pulling them off or putting on new ones. In a life-threatening situation, it is extremely important, because this way you can find a safe line between excessive sweating (overheating) and body cooling.

Organized anti-terrorist actions provide a lot of emotions, especially when we can admire them on a TV or laptop screen. In more than one movie, we can see the complicated activities of special units that try to rescue hostages or stop dangerous criminals. Close Quarters Battle is certainly an extremely interesting field. There is no room for error in the schemes in which the units act. That is why the training of members of special formations is so important. Often the lives of action participants depend on one another. In this post we will try to bring, what exactly is Close Quarters Battle.
Preparations for this trip took almost a year. The plan included Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. Within 6 weeks, we were to cover this route by land, local transport, without the help of an agency, because we organize both this and our previous trips ourselves from start to finish. Long we wondered about the things that we needed and will prove themselves both during trekking and on safari. It is known that during a trip longer than 2 weeks, and when packing all things into a backpack, every kilogram counts, which later weighs on our back. Therefore, it is worth considering what things will work and what conditions to expect in given places. That's why I do some research before each trip.
Bushcrafters call it EDC (Every Day Carry), the military IPS (Individual Survival Package). Different names, but a common task, which is to provide the owner with a minimum of self-sufficiency in casual terrain. A set of items ready for use in an emergency must be: waterproof, small (it can be carried in a pocket in case of loss of equipment) and resistant to mechanical damage. The basic IPS looks similar to most Special Forces operators. It can be divided into sets, each of which is responsible for a separate aspect of military survival.
