First Snow and Winter Survival Weekend Class

We had our first snow of the year last night, a dusting of about an inch to brighten things up. The front came through late, and as a result the winds are high and blowing the snow around.

I’m busy getting prepared for our Winter Survival Weekend Course which begins tomorrow. My preparations include cutting some firewood and setting up several shelters. It’s always a fun class to run and the dusting of snow will make it all the more so. Winter is a time of slim margins for error, but for those who venture forth it’s also a time of incredible beauty in the bush.

I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few weeks writing up information on our yearlong program. I’ve rewritten our college credit guide and put a link to it, as well the new bibliography, bush lore outline, nature study outline, tuition information, and curriculum guide on the Bushcraft and Earth Skills Yearlong Immersion Program page on our site. There is still much work to be done, but the outline is there and just needs to be filled in.

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.
