The handbook represents years of accumulated knowledge, research and experience on the part of the contributors, and may hundreds of hours that went into its writing and assembling.
The handbook was put together with contributions by members.
The purpose of the handbook was to tap the knowledge and experience of the UMO brothers and put it in accessible form for new members to help them along their “pilgrim’s journey.” This handbook would help them “come up to speed” while avoiding many common mistakes and wasting of their time and money in making and buying improper gear.
It is also a valuable resource for senior members of the Upper Missouri Outfit.
