Bushcraft Semester Day One Recap

Our first day of the spring bushcraft semester course was marked by a wide range of weather. We went from still air, to snowy whiteout, to sleet, to rain, as the temperature warmed through the day. In the afternoon we went into the bush to familiarize everyone with the area. On our way out, we walked on top of the snow on the crust. But as the temperatures warmed, the crust began melting and we began sinking in. This slowed our progress, as there is still 36″ (and more in the drifts) of snow in the woods.

I came across a great quotation about learning and remembering the other day.

“I have found that it is hard to remember what you try to learn. But it is difficult to forget what you have fun playing with.”
– Truoc Duong, The Zen Of Self Publishing
