Yet Another Wilderness and Remote First Aid Week End
I spent the weekend with a dozen Scouting folks covering the first aid training required for all the BSA High Adventure bases now. We had everything from lightning deaths to mosquito bites so the 16+ hours went fairly quickly.
I've got a few more sessions scheduled around my long hikes, but they're full so I have to find room to add some more in May and June. I don't mind because I think it really is fun to facilitate and it's always a good refresher for me - especially since I'll be out alone for so many weeks this summer.
If you are looking for a new way to support Scouting, check with your local Red Cross chapter about becoming an instructor. They're often in need of more people and you get to meet a lot of great folks.
PS: still waiting for my sewing machine gear.
