I had begun to write booklets for each of the divisions within the Brotherhood: Signaling, Fishing, Fire, Navigation, Terrain, Climate, Gear, Trekking, Shelter and Cooking.
A Bivouac Brotherhood member is curious, fearless and resourceful. You will be presented with a cornocopia of challenges to complete in a variety of specialized subjects, and as your reward you will gain knowledge, skills, and stature within the Brotherhood. The accomplished Bivouac Brotherhood member will become proficient in all ten Bivouac Branches: Fire, Fishing, Hiking, Tools, Cooking, Climate, Navigation, Shelters, Signaling and Terrain. Those who master any of the 10 Bivouac Branches receive medals as a sign of their unmatched skill, and soon you will have a multitude of insignia to represent and celebrate your unique talents.
