2018 – Peak Social & Back To The Source

Facebook, Youtube, And The Rest Can Keep Their Private Sandboxes

We hit peak social media a few years ago and have been on the downward slant since then. Time spent on social media feels like an arms race of narcissism, and those are the good days. And now they tell us they’re changing the rules again so people probably won’t hear from us unless we fork over some cash. Well, thanks but no thanks.

We’re now focusing on our own sites, posting our articles, podcast and videos on our media site. We’ll still post photos and links on social media, but our emphasis from here on out is on properties we own, not rented land on social media. Check out our redesigned media site at: JMB Media

The other part of our shift away from social media is an increase in email, so expect to hear from us more frequently.

Our 2018 Schedule Is Up

It’s our 20th Year, and we’ve redesigned our schedule based around our redesigned web presence. Start with our Master Calendar, at:

JMBS Master Calendar

From there you can click through to our different calendars based on type of program: Field School, Folk School, Guided Trips, etc.

Following the trend of the past few years, programs are filling earlier than ever. The Boreal Snowshoe Expedition is full, the spring Wilderness Bushcraft Semester is almost full, the Bonaventure canoe trip is full, and there are just a few spots left in the Summer Woodsman. If you’re thinking about joining us this year, don’t delay!

Podcast Hits 30 Episodes

Our podcast has entered the modern world. We recently released episode 30 featuring Sam Larson from the TV show alone. Not that someone being on a tv show makes them a good candidate for a podcast interview, but Sam is also a Jack Mountain alumnus and we go way back to 2011. It was the first episode we recorded remotely. So now we have the technological aptitude to record remote podcasts and are open to suggestions on future guests. If you’ve got ideas, let’s hear them!

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.
