Pathways to the Ancient
This is my main course and a good starting point in that it offers a well rounded skill-set to get you going.
You will develop skills and knowledge all but lost among modern adventurers and professional guides alike. But, nurse you need not already be outdoor savvy to take part (it is fine if you are too). Pathways to the ancient include bushcraft and nature interpretations that can be utilized further and even help when the unexpected occurs–such as the loss of gear. I also often include map and compass and GPS basics in my course as many have found quite helpful.
Nature-lore may include the study of wild edible plants, treat reading and understanding animal sign and tracks, salve ecology, and developing a heightened awareness including the sights and sounds often missed by modern adventurers. Bushcraft skills include the technique of starting fires without matches, wayfinding, clothing, in depth map and compass (and other lostproofing techniques) and many, many other bushcrafts that can be used to supplement your nature outings.
