Blue Ridge Expeditions Session 3, July 20

By Sandy Schenck

The journey has begun! The expeditioners arrived yesterday and are off to a great start. They interviewed each other on their walk to their Reasonover Base Camp and once they arrived established a community covenant. They learned how to cook, clean and set up a restroom in the woods! The essentials! Today, they spent the day exploring the mud of the bog and working on skills such as spoon making, basket making and making fire by friction. Tomorrow, they will decide on their backpacking trip and head off to Pisgah National Forest to camp for the evening. Thursday will be spent climbing and then the backpacking will begin. Enjoy the photos and we will post them again when they return from climbing, backpacking and canoeing.
