    Had a blast with the "compass game" and I definitely need more practice. When did you say the all day class is going to be offered?! haha

      Too funny. Was going to stop this morning but it was too early. Hopefully it will work on my way back through on monday

      We're not open on Mondays. You could try to call anytime you're passing through and see if we're here, we're glad to work with you on that if were able. [masked]

    I may not get lost in the woods(unless Douglas thinks it would be entertaining to get me lost)! :)

    I'm trying to get the day off, I requested it off over a week ago. But as of now, I'll probably have to drop out. :(

    Of course the one session I will have to miss is the "how to poop in the woods" class! :-)
