    I dont think the Ministry would approve that size of blade. Have I ever used a fiskars brush axe? No. The machete I have is 20 overall, blade is 15x3 at the widest and narrows down to just under 2 at the handle. Weighs 1 lb. 3 oz with most of the weight in the blade. Not very tiring tiring at all.

    The lesson to learn from this is that there could have been a lot more focus on how the hunting community in BC could have helped. I'm not sure how, maybe

    contact info for the GO
    Someone enroute to area who could drop off fuel
    Locals who might be able to help
    Etc


    Besides the suggestion to call SAR, which is appropriate in an emergency, there was lots of uncolicitated advice and not a lot of useful help.

    Lots of frost,, -20 and not much snow is the best recipe for doing such things. Much better then the ol 21" Hachette.

    Re: Stuck in snow storm at Redfern - Need urgent help

    This story brought back memories.. Got chased out of the Redfern area early Sept in the 80s. Early snowfall that suprised us when we got up one morning .Running two Big Reds chained up, pulling trailers and we damn near had to make camp on the way out because of fallen alders on one sidehill. The trailers carrying our camp and two moose kept trying to slide off the road--- we were down to a crawl at times. Got out to the road just at dusk..... wet cold hungry and in need of a drink. But we got our bulls, so it was all worth it!
