Episode 62 is about how to know a place. Part of what we teach on our immersion programs is how to be at home in the forest. This includes both academic and experiential components, which we discuss. We also talk about the Masardis glacier and give an update about our articulation agreement with the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

Episode 61 is about standards-based professional training. We’re speaking to potential students and giving them an idea of what to expect. In a nutshell, it’s hard, there’s a lot of work, and you have to be mature to to deal with the adversity it produces in a positive way.

When things don’t go your way, it’s important to know that things worth working for are often difficult, and to realize that difficulty is part of the process. If it were all easy, what would be the point of spending time and energy on it?

For more on this topic, see the older post titled Mental Toughness Is The Key To Training.

The Jack Mountain Bushcraft Podcast is back. After an extended stay off the grid running our winter programs, we’re back in the world with new episodes. Episode 59 is all about the Brushfire Rendezvous, coming to the field school October 11-13, 2019. Before we get to talking about it, we discuss the events of the day before recording the episode which consisted of pulling a 1994 Ski-Doo Grand Touring out of deep, powdery snow over and over again in an effort to pack down a trail.

Blake and Christopher joined me in the guide shack for the episode.
