Survival Day 170 (Mattock)

The ground where I live is really hard and full of roots. The only way to dig a hole or a trench is to use a Mattock and cut your way through the hard ground. So if I want to dig, the first thing I pull out of my shed is this Mattock.

I’m going car camping I also throw one in the back of my car. It is the perfect tool to cut latrine holes and no one seems to think having a Mattock in my vehicle is strange. I just tell them I’m going to go do some gardening at my Dad’s if they ask any questions.

Come the ZA, this Mattock is perfect as a back up weapon and if it comes down to it, I can use it to start to cut trenches or dig holes for palisades.

So whether this Mattock is a back up weapon you keep in your vehicle or a trenching fortification tool, you want to make sure you have one at your house and one at your Bolt Hole.
