Kevin Corrigan Nest Tour 

This summer I went on a two week Outward Bound alpine backpacking course in Colorado. The course included a 36 hour solo period. We were each given our own area then left with only the following items:

  • Backpack
  • Peanuts
  • Raisins
  • Water
  • Gatorade-type drink powder
  • Pen and paper
  • Solo tarp with paracord (no stakes)
  • Sleeping bag and ground sheet
  • Pocket knife
  • Clothes

That’s it. We weren’t allowed to bring anything to keep us occupied. We were not allowed to bring a camera, a flashlight or even a watch. I chose to spend the first day building a shelter for myself, then slept in it that night. This is a tour of my shelter. It kept me warm, dry and out of the wind. In fact, it was the most comfortable night sleep I had during the trip.

Sadly, in accordance with leave no trace principles, I had to destroy my beautiful nest before leaving.

KEVIN IS A GOD AMONG MEN. Also pretty sure I saw a dead body in your nest, bro. Whatup with that?
