    Registered for this, and pretty excited

    I've been wanting to do this for a couple years, and finally just decided to DO it! I may be the oldest there, but I'll be having the best time!

    Motive? My grandson, whom I'm quite close to and who is on the autism spectrum, is going to be 16 next week. He has always loved fishing and camping, and I just have minimal skills at those things. I want to get better, especially at fishing, so I can take him. When he's fishing, he calms.

    I did get into the fishing session, along with some rope/knot-tying and fire-making sessions. I would have liked to do the map and compass, but I'm still fairly ok doing that.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    That looks like so much fun. I would have a difficult time in picking only 3 classes!

    That would be fun to do -- there or here. <looks around Minnesota for similar outings>

    It WAS really hard...wish it was a day longer, then I would have tried for a couple other ones.

    It's always good to learn new skills--and pass them on to your posterity!

    I took a hiking class forty years ago. I learned that no matter how impressive the payoff is (Columbia Gorge views), hiking is not for me and my worthless knees.
