Wilderness First Responder Course
Hey guys, It’s been awhile. Want to become a Wilderness First Responder? Then join me in sunny San Diego for a five-day WFR course. A link to the course description and registration is below. This is an intensive five-day course that also requires 25 hours of course prep work. The days of instruction are long and intense, so not much time for the beach unless you want to extend your time. For those who want to extend your time, you are welcome to join Joe and I at our home in Laguna Beach which is about 70 miles north of San Diego. Our home is a quick 2 mile bike ride to some of the most beautiful beaches in California, plus miles of hiking in the Laguna Canyon Wilderness across the road. The course is held at a campground and offers camping. My plan is to stay at an AirBnB very close by. If anyone is interested, we could share a place. Once you become a certified WFR, you earn the honor of being a “Woofer.” Any questions, please let me know. Cheers! Todd

What we're about

Join us for nights under the stars, treks in the woods and NYC events to talk about your favorite gear and the next adventure.

BLAZE>> is a group for gay men in NYC that crave being outdoors and are passionate about backpacking and backcountry camping. New to backpacking? No worries, our members range from beginner trekkers with lots of enthusiasm to seasoned adventurers with years of experience to share. We are committed to challenging ourselves by trekking to isolated places of remarkable beauty, but our trips are as much about the journey as they are about being an über athlete.
