"I have participated in two events, back-to-back weekends, and am excited to be brushing up on map and compass work and associated skills. Courses so far have been just the right distance and, um, if I may suggest, in this era of cell-phone and GPS turn-by-turn navigation, I think that the skill-set is being lost on the masses and this is a wonderful way to learn and gain competency. Definitely recommend and has been outstanding for families to participate in."
"We had loads of fun. My 8 year old wants to do it again asap and bring all her friends. Let us know if we can help/contribute/volunteer in any way."
