This is something I have been interested in lately. My encounter report that I posted on the website was kinda short compared to others I have read in various places. The main reason for that was because it happened so suddenly and I wanted to stick to the facts.
But I'm not really focusing on actual encounter reports. I'm mostly interested in writing expedition reports so I can give other researchers a good idea of what happens when I go squatching. Reports that I can potentially post on this site for anyone interested in reading them.
What kind of information should I include in these reports? Should I carry a notebook so if something happens I can immediately write it down?
It has been 15 years since I was on active duty. Even though I went through a short course that Recon Marines go/went through doesn't mean I was on that level. Most of the info in that scout skier course was focused on navigation and safely leading Marines through the mountains in winter. But we still did learn about scouting and not being seen which was pretty fun.
Alot of you guys have skills I don't have but I really want to learn this stuff.
