SOLO Wilderness First Responder Course Review

Back in September, The Man and I both decided we wanted to take the 80-hour Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course held through Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities (SOLO) and hosted by the Adventure Leadership Institute (ALI) at Oregon State University (OSU). We did some research about the class beforehand, and we got our required supply list just two days before class started, so there was a bit of panicked shopping. Thankfully we had an extra $100 just laying there (not) to buy these supplies after paying $600 each for the class.

Blog Year Retrospective #9

Nine years!? Crikey! I'm here for another retrospective, remembering the highs and lows of this past year on my blog.
