    It’s not as much of how the hell did I get here but more of how the hell do I get back.

    +1 waiting list. The pooping in the woods course he gave was awesome. I’d expect this to be just as good.

    I don’t see where I can officially join a waitlist for this one. Do I just watch the comments and jump in if someone cancels?

      Hey Sue…there is no official waiting list, so you’ll have to watch for comments. There link at the bottom of this page where you can subscribe to get emails. Looks like you’re already subscribed. And I’ll check with Leigh to see if more spots can be added.

    Sadly, I’ve had to cancel my RSVP to this event. That means another spot is open.

    Greetings lost campers,
    Just a couple things to bring on Sunday’s map in the park:
    Please bring a compass, in a pinch you could use the one on the phone.
    Also a pencil.
    If you have a favorite hiking map you would like to work the exercises on, bring that too.
    You might also want to bring water and a snack.

    Wear something you can walk in the woods in because there are hands on exercises that involve following your compass route.
    There is the prospect of showers Sunday so stay tuned in case we have to reschedule.

      Hey Leigh…In the description I told everyone to meet at the Food Lion at 9am. Is that ok? Trying to avoid any confusion.

    Yes, thank you, Leigh! I’ve always been a bit perplexed with compass navigation and you have finally unraveled the mystery for me. The hands on demos and activities were extremely helpful.
