I've fallen behind on blogging once again. It's been a busy summer. I got married, taught at a couple summer camps, helped grow a big garden, sent a big hat order to Tokyo and found time to do some backpacking.
The Oregonian published an article about me and my survival skills workshops with TrackersEarth, last Sunday in the travel section. It was actually supposed to come out last year but got bumped ahead until this chanterelle season came around again. I'll be in the spotlight again this month as I am giving two talks at the Clackamas and Tualatin REI's on wilderness survival basics. Visit their site to find out dates and times.
I learned how to use powerpoint and put together a presentation for it (never thought I would be doing powerpoint presentations). I used to be really shy as a kid and hated speaking in front of any crowd. Though I'm reluctant I'm finding it a good exercise for me to speak in public. I'll also be teaching another one of my Wilderness Survival Basics workshops the first weekend of Nov. You can visit the TrackersPDX website to read about it.
I'm finding that my hat business has been in a slump for the past two years. No new changes in product or revisions to the website really. So, I'm gearing up for an overhaul of the site, fixing dead links, posting more photos and adding maybe a new hat or two. With all luck this will happen early 2011.
