Home Early

I didn't survive the survival class.

I woke up on Sunday morning with a terrible migraine and upset stomach and, six hours later, felt little better and decided to pack it in. Had the survival class been the last part of this trip I would have probably stuck it out but I also have another long drive and a fishing trip at the end of the week.

I got some pictures of the campout, the people, and some of the projects I completed while I was there.

I met lots of nice people with similar interests and look forward to seeing them again in the near future.

Marty is doing a plant intensive class next month and the month after George is doing his primitive skills class. I'd like to try and do both if I can swing airfare to Marty's and get someone to watch the kids during the day.

I learned some lessons in the two days I was there. Even if I'd stayed for the full 10 days I would have had way too much gear and I packed pretty light this time.

More later,

Unlucky. But I'm sure you did the best thing.

Hey there- I hope you get over the hump on this. It would be good to see you at Maty's and up here in August if you can!
