    Wow. Really good wilderness first aid instruction at a great price. I recommend this course to anyone who spends a lot of time hiking, camping or backpacking. It was good to see so many other Meetup folks in the class. We all passed and received our certification! You could probably spend more money and get a higher quality class but this class was just fine! You quickly learn that there is much more to learn and some of the first aid techniques you learned years ago are no longer practiced.

    I am having some car troubles and am looking for a ride up and back. I plan to spend the night on Fri. I am in Milford, but can meet at 71/275. I will have my backpack.

    Does anyone want to carpool? I live in Newport, and can carry up to 3 more people if you want to meet me in KY or have me pick you up along the way on I-71. I'm staying overnight at the Camp Friday.
