Summer Semester Done, 59th Long Term Program Completed

Deer in the field

This morning the parking lot is empty for the first time in 14 weeks. We finished the summer Wilderness Bushcraft Semester with three people receiving their Journeyman Certification. It was a challenging course. June started cold and rainy, then got very hot, humid and buggy. But it was a solid group of people and they continued to achieve despite the challenges.

As with most courses, I start out posting a lot to the JMB Blog, but as the fatigue levels rise up and the list of things on the to-do list gets long, posting tapers off. I did post a bunch of photos to social media as it is easy to do, but is not my favorite way to interact with people.

The rest will be short-lived, as this week we are running our Summer Woodsman course. After that, a week to rest and see old friends, then back for the fall Wilderness Bushcraft Semester. It will be our 60th long-term program, and will finish out our 24th year, both milestones I’m proud of.

But this morning, a lazy cup of coffee, some camp chores and a trip to town to resupply on a few essentials.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
