    I have used the MMX checklist and it has never failed me:
     
    http://americanmilsim.com/forum/index.php?/topic/1170-mmx-kit-check-list/
     
    As a general rule, I bring everything.  A nice thing is that there are vendors as these events that can generally supply the things you might forget or discover you need.  Additionally, most of the AO's have nearby locations with big box stores etc.. so it's not like you will be stranded in the middle of nowhere.
     
    My general experience as someone who plays airsoft alone (I'm 36 so most people my age around me don't have the same hobby) is that the community is good at supporting eachother and will generally welcome you in.  You'll have your exceptions but for the most part folks are cool.
     
    Different MilsSim groups have different rules about color/camo requirements.  Just read the AMS ruleset for all you need:
    http://americanmilsim.com/forum/index.php?/forum/23-ams-rules-and-regulations/
     
    I don't fly with my gear (too much stuff) so I tend to play at AOs that are within touching states (I am in GA) so I can drive.  But I know that others do and can you some tips on such.
     
    Best of luck!

    Agreed with the above. Read the ruleset, commit it to memory, purchase the "needs" it mentions. 
     
    Then do some forum searching for past threads like this. There are many out there with extensive lists, some even event specific. 
     
    There are threads for airport travel as well, and some youtubers even cover the process.

    Sheepdog got a reaction from TheJP in CDF Camo Question   
    Well going by what this says I'd say no. It's seems pretty specific in stating "grey, black, or civilian attire." Urban Camo isn't any of those.

    Sheepdog reacted to Alex AMS in CDF Camo Question   
    The spirit is that the top is not Green or Tan camo.  If were reffering to a white or blue camo top, I'll allow that.  I just don't want people showing up with a tan or green top, saying it's civilan.  The Black and Grey was put in there to give people the option of a combat shirt, but not in a faction color.

    The scouts will have multiple missions.  An overall OPORD will go out depicting the nature of the scouts mission approx 30ish days out from the event.

    IF you happen to be a person inclined to run in the UFS faction...
     
    and IF you are a person that has no problem being vocal on these forums and / or social media...

    Stop crying everyone, this has been tried before and it worked before and brought an interesting twist. This is a good reason for your platoon leaders to be communicating with you and their field commanders so that they can coordinate supply drops. Yes, shit happens and you may have to break contact to resupply or you may have to adapt and over come so stop crying about it and just use it as another way to learn from hardship.

    Sheepdog got a reaction from Kinsworthy in Good camo for COST   
    Out there you will find that most of the patterns for cost work really well. Basic m81 is super cheap and works great in the vegitation. I recommend steering clear of mandrake, as it is hard for both sides to tell at a distance, which leads to getting team killed.

    Which means it will be cost and cdf vs ufs like always.
     
    And I would like for you guys to get back to the cdf that we had at obh 1 (my age is showing) where they were not always armed. Sometimes they would just walk through the ao as civilians and we would have to deal with them as such. It added a whole other level to game play and training that we haven't seen since.

    Sheepdog got a reaction from Dave in AARs   
    Panhandle Patriot Milsim had a great time. We started off Saturday ditching the truck and heading out to find Alpha 3 which was tasked to find the infamous CP6, but had lost radio contact with command. Found them, but never found CP6. After 2 hrs of land nav, coordinates, Bo being jealous of our Alpha patches, hiking, looking, sweating, we cut our losses and regrouped at coleville. Most of the guys were tired by this point so we set up a defensive position on the NW corner of Coleville while the truck made a run to the fob to drop off intel. The rest of Saturday was mostly defensive, with light contact scattered throughout the day.
     
    Sunday rolls around. No Pov's. Well shit. We move out with the rest of Alpha at game on to push down the east side of Coleville down toward Omaha Beach. Once we set a line, we set up our MRP north east of the church. Most of sunday was hard fighting on Omaha beach and south along that ravine toward pegasus. Lots of intense firefights, Lots of bounding. Lots of medic-ing. It was a blast. Cost broke our line at one point, and pushed into colevill at the northeast corner, but we were able to rearm and push back, taking advantage of the enemies fatigue and lack of ammo. It was a blast. 

    Overall impressions from this game: 
    Pros

    1. Admin: Despite some others saying they had conflicting info coming down from admin, this was the first event where PPM didn't encounter that. Normally because we run a truck, we have admin on our ass all weekend (and rightly so). This event was different, and it was nice to see the admin on the same page in that aspect. 
     
    2. Command: PPM has been dedicated UFS since OBH 1, and we will never change sides because of 1 thing. UFS Command. Guys like Top, Ron. Danarchy. Jazzman, and all the others that we didn't interact with at this event are the reason UFS is so strong. People who know how to inspire people to play hard, push themselves, and not quit until we win. You won't see UFS command leading from the back.
     
    3. Players: This OBH saw the best player base I have witnessed at an AMS event. I witnessed only 2 problems with hit calling (both UFS players), and both were simply them not realizing they were hit, and when I told them they said "Really?" and laughed and popped their rag. Great job to both sides. 
     
    4. Weather: To those who have played at other OBH events, you will understand what I mean when I say "Ill take any weather that isn't triple digits, full humidity, and no breeze. The rain was awesome. Playing soaking wet sucks, walking through the mud sucks, crawling through the mud sucks, driving in the mud sucks, guns going down sucks, and it was awesome. 
     
    5. Morale: UFS command did a great job of keeping the troops motivated and in the fight. It FELT like we had less attrition this year as opposed to other years. Props. 
     
    Cons:
     
    1. Field Usage: AMS, I understand that you were trying to play the field differently from years passed. Didn't want the same old game. Just my opinion: those of us that continue to come to broken home year after year are not upset about the same old game. If you want to change things up, than change the goals of the game. But taking the fights away from the places that dday built to fight in? We didn't enjoy that as much as previous years.
     
    2. CP6: wtf....... 
     
    3. Indigo Sky: This was the biggest bummer about the weekend. Our team has almost as much fun bull shitting at the casino as we do playing at DDay. This year they sold out for that weekend in February. Oh well. We still got to go eat at Montana Mikes with Ron and the Dark Horse guys. 
     
    4. T-Rex: I cant stand that dude. (jk, just being a shit) Rex, you offered to fight me for my ITS Honey Badger patch but we never got the chance. Here's to hoping we can scrap for it at some point. 
     
    5. No POV on Sunday: If I had to be pissed off about one thing it would be this. Not so much because we necessarily need to use the truck, but because as a team, we invest a lot of money to haul that thing from Amarillo TX to dday, and I'd rather it not just sit there while we play. That being said, I do understand the reason's for them being pulled. 
     
     
    Huge thanks to AMS for a great event, and I personally cannot wait until OBH 5. PPM will be there in force.
