How much outdoor experience do you have?

I grew up camping with my family. I still love it and try to get away with at least a couple times each year. Day hiking is always a joy. I garden and raise chickens. And mainly I wish I had more time for all of this!

What kinds of activities are you interested in trying?

Orienteering, survival skill building, rock climbing, ocean kayaking

What was your best outdoor experience?

There are lots of great camping experiences - Sequoias, Big Sur, Joshua Tree

What was your worst?

Setting up camp at night and waking to gun fire realizing we were on the edge of a hunting area. HIGHTAILED it out of there! Lesson learned - NEVER set up camp at night because we missed the clearly posted 'keep out' signs

Introduction
