Awesome pics, gerbig. I like that everybody's doing it a little bit different; how much freedom do they have to decide their own shelter/cooking apparatus/etc, before getting instructed "don't do that you'll die."
Brilligtove, I dig the beard, you should grow it all the way. See you on the flip side!
We give them the bare minimum standards. Its more about if something works than if it meets a standard or looks a certain way.
Its not so much "You have to build your shelter this way and this way only!" its more about "Are you Warm? Dry? Good"
