If you you know us, then you may know we enjoy long walks in the wilderness with tons of gear and no trails. We love all things LRP and LandNav, and every one of us is an expert wayfinder with map & compass (and even without those). We recently heard about the app Theodolite from Hunter Research & Technologies, for iOS.
This thing is super slick and has a ton of features. Previously, you would need several apps to come close to the features in this one, but still not have the great Augmented Reality style navigation hud that this gives you. What was really suprising was the fact that it's only $3.99 (based on such an advanced and specialized app, that's pretty damn low). It has more bells and whistles than I wanna spend the time listing here, so learn more about the app on the hrt site.

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $3 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Head over to Tough Mudder's website and get your registration on. Then drink a gallon of milk. Then get your PT on like you've never PT'd before.
We'll see you there.

You may not hear from us often, but there is usually a lot going on behind the scenes with HF. We're undergoing some team-wide upgrades, and HFTC is included.
We have learned a lot from our previous challenges, and in our team training. We are going back to the drawing board and we're going put that into our next team challenge design. We don't have a date yet, it will be ready when it's ready.
Bottom line, we won't be able to put on a challenge without signups. We have added an email address field to the HFTC Page in order to gauge interest. Even if we have your email address already, please add it there so we can see how many folks are interested, as well as send you updates for our future iteration of the challenge.

Hatchet Force attended the 11th annual Operation Lion Claws MILSIM Airsoft event. We were fielded under the command of Col. Danny McKnight, U.S. Army RANGER (Ret.), on 4th Squad, 3rd Platoon, Alpha Company.
We fought hard and completed our objectives. In the end, ALPHA Company was victorious.
We had a great time and would like to thank the OPLCMSS crew and all the players for making it an awesome weekend.

Sorry folks. Unfortunately we have not been getting enough sign-ups for this event. We have decided to shelve it for now and hopefully revisit it at a later date.
We are looking for ways to bring back HFTC, so stay tuned here and on our facebook page for intel.
For now we are focusing on team training. Contact us if you are interested in learning more.
If you have been visiting our site lately you may have noticed some changes. Sorry for any inconvenicnce as we've been moving things around. You may see some broken links and images in older posts within the news section which may or may not get fixed as time allows. For now, stay tuned for new updates and check out our new gallery!
