Carpe Diem, latin for seize the day. Make your life extrodenary~
Henry David Thoreau said “I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.”
Mark Twain said "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
These were two of the greatest writers of the last 100 years. They, like many others (Rocky for example) have "seized the day". I have tried to begin living by that modo. It is difficult, but rewarding! With a course like that I am not sure how serious they make it. I know some survival courses are very "military like" and a very roguh learning enviroment. Others, like this one very well may be, can be a splended place with a teacher that is very willing to share.
In a class like this where there are more people that just you and the teacher it can be difficult to learn. It really helps, for me anyways, to have a one on one teacher (Usually Razor). I'd say look around and see if there are others with similar interests in the area that you can get with to learn these skills one on one.
Another idea may be purchasing a video like Ron Hood's Woodsmaster movie. It is extremely instructional, and shows you step by step what to do. I know if you post your progress and difficulties here that others will be willing to help you as long as your willing to hear constructive criticism (which always helps!)
Carpe Diem Kim!
