What Should You Expect?

This is a two-day course.  We will meet early and return late.  Students should expect to walk several miles each day and to sleep in a shelter constructed of local materials.  Tents and sleeping bags are not permitted for this course.  All food will be provided, although it will be much less than most students are accustomed to.  This course is strenuous but not impossible, and our main focus is on skill development not testing you physically.
