Crossing Rivers Safely

The title of this post is the premise of our River Crossing Skills course and we ran our first one of the season this past weekend. Thankfully we had great weather, nice water conditions, and the bugs along the river weren’t too terrible. We aren’t always blessed. We run this course any time and sometimes it’s not ideal — because we cross rivers year ’round — […]

Late Season Training

While most the people visiting the White Mountain National Forest could spot patches of snow on the distant mountains over this Memorial Day weekend, very few of them set foot on them. Most, probably — aside from the backcountry and slackcountry skiers — couldn’t care less about the snow wanting nothing to do with the white stuff until next Christmas. Not even the hikers who have […]

Outdoor Education Trifecta

That’s what this weekend felt like. Beginning Friday we instructed four pretty diverse wilderness education courses. First up we ran a River Skills Course. Much to our surprise this was much less painful and far more enjoyable than we had envisioned, despite having to traverse shore ice getting to the river. Next up was our very popular Wilderness Navigation Course. This was doable thanks to limited […]

Make Shopping Easy

Today is “Black Friday” and we are here to save you from it if you’ll let us. Here’s the idea: Instead of getting trampled to death in some mall, spend a few minutes on our site, order a gift certificate for someone you love, then take the rest of the day off. Maybe go hiking. It’s a perfect gift. A gift certificate from us is good […]

River Crossing Class

We originally had a full class for today’s half-day women’s-only River Crossing Skills course — put on for the NH Women’s Hiking Group (a.k.a. the Purple Army) — but two of the members decided to take our map and compass course instead. That left us with a grand total of two eager students… and that was totally enough to make it a fun and worthwhile day […]

If you’ve ever taken one of our Wilderness Navigation courses this may be a perfect opportunity to put […]
