      I would love to further my knpwledge about winter survivle.as someone who camps frequently , having survivle skills could save my life, and halp me enjoy the outdootrs more. nothing is more important than being comfortable in the outdoors, our world, and this class could teach me . I also want to adress the world problems of overpop,pollution, hunger, and solve them to the best of my ability.

      Just started the class at New Vista and I am looking foward to learning all the skills that Ford has mentioned. Going camping is going to be sweet.

      I’m really looking forward to going camping and learning how to survive in different conditions. The snow shelters look awesome, I want to learn how to build them. Colorado’s so beautiful and I want to take advantage of my surroundings like I have in the past.

      I’d like to garner some of the outdoor skills that I haven’t had the oppertunity to develop.

      Sorry about the first comment. I hope to learn and understand the essential skills for surviving horrible mishaps during camping trips, in addition to actually doing something for a cause (which has yet to be determined).

      I still can’t believe I’m actually going to be in this class! I just hope I don’t die…I’m not exactly a rugged outdoorsman.
