18th Bushcraft Semester Program Completed

Our 18th bushcraft immersion semester program is finished and I’m enjoying some down time with family.  In addition to a busy schedule of courses, we added a hand pump well to the field school this year, as well as finished the exterior of the guide shack and built a student campsite at Moose Vegas.

In the coming days I’ll be announcing and explaining a new summer program for immersion program graduates and introducing two new certification programs we’re offering begining this year, but for now I’m just enjoying my creature comforts.  After several months in the field, I’m always amazed at the things I take for granted when living in a modern house.  There are no bugs, it’s warm, I’m protected from the rain, and I can get water by just turning a faucet.  One result of long periods of time spent living outdoors is the appreciation of the comforts that modern life allows.

Typos, Etc.
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.
