“When you have learned the skills required to travel into the wilderness; day or night, winter or summer, good weather or bad, and be at home; you will have earned your
I’m building a page (below is a list) which identifies many of these skills. I plan to offer classes and events like this too, but our community has a “Tremendous” wealth of knowledge and skill. I realize I have some, but do not have the time, nor resources to teach and sponsor all of these events.
It would be a shame to waste “our” collective abilities that help build a better community. Please do give me a call, or email me with the **following information.
If you need some help putting all the details together, no problem, I know someone with a little skill in that area.

**The idea behind this section is to get people who have wilderness skills and would like to share them, a place to do it. Once we develop an appropriate offering, I will put a page together and post it on this site.
Sharing your skills would be a great service to the community, and the instructor, I prefer the word, (Facilitator,”we are all teaches and students”) gains as well. .
The way it works is:
Email or call me with an idea, or service you would like to provide.
Jot down a rough outline of how you propose to do it
What fees or material costs are involved on your end.
Include the five “w’s” who, what, where, when, why, and . . . as they apply to the teacher, and or the student
We will put our heads together, and come up with a post to announce it.
Things will be off and running.
