This morning we begin the fall 2021 Wilderness Bushcraft Semester; our 53rd long-term wilderness immersion program. Yesterday people arrived from Florida, California, Montana, Maryland, and other places around the country to our little town in northern Maine. They got a quick tour of the field school and we cooked a group dinner over the fire. Today the work begins. There will be a lot of action around here for the next nine weeks. Lots of learning, experience-building, pushing boundaries, and maybe seeing life through a different lens. I’m excited, as I am at the beginning of every program. And feeling very fortunate that this is my job.
