Yet another fun weekend with the Appalachian Mountain Club at Cardigan Lodge. This weekend six of us got together to lead/attend spring school intermediate backpacking. The learning highlights: approximating direction using the sun and a watch, map and compass practice, bushwhacking, spending a rainy night in my tent – a test I really wanted to experience, hiking in my trail running shoes rather than hiking boots, cooking with my cat-can stove.
