It’s day one of the spring Earth Skills Semester Program. Everyone’s here, and this morning we hit the ground running. There is still 36″ of snow in the bush, but since the shelters have raised beds we’re able to make it work without too much discomfort. Spring came to Wolfeboro yesterday, with warm temperatures and abundant sunshine. This week the days will be much warmer than last week, with temperatures ranging from the 40’s to the 60’s during the heat of the day, so the snow won’t last too long. We’re going to have a tough mud season, but soon the lakes and rivers will be open and the leaves will be coming out on the trees.
So this morning I’m dusting off our video camera and getting ready for season 3 of Jack Mountain Bushcraft Journal. Stay tuned for updates.
