Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.

I accept the challenge.
On one condition...
You and I do it at the same time, same place, same conditions.
How's your schedule? Mine is very flexible.

Appears interesting. Has its merits.

However I think a NOLS class would be better time and money spent. Without a doubt, interpersonal and team dynamics play a significant role as skills do.

Alright we can take a course together. We can find one which we can both attend. Although we both have to pay our own way.

That seems fair enough to me.

You can drive your vehicle to the school location I believe and I would think that would include motorhomes but if you take a BOSS field course you are going to be out in the woods for 7, 14, or 28 days depending on the course you're taking. You will be deep in the woods, you will hike for miles every day, and you will be far away from any vehicles, motor homes, or other signs of civilization.
