|Birthday Adventures in the Upper Peninsula|
of Michigan! Fantastic memories! :)
When I took my first Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course, there was a large section on leading children in the wilderness. The teacher brought up the importance of eliminating in the woods, and teaching kids how to do that early in their life so that it wasn't an issue later on. I had first hand experience with this, and what he said made sense. Being in a WFR class, we always had the most extreme issues on your mind, but sometimes we overlook the simple fix...one should note, it isn't always easy to encourage someone if they hadn't learned as a child.
Wilderness adventure is in our backyards here in Duluth and Superior, and we at E3 encourage you to take advantage of everything our area has to offer! We have access to over a million acres of playground within a 3 hour drive of the Twin Ports, including the Boundary Waters, the state forest lands in Wisconsin, the Apostle Islands, and so much more! If you aren't a natural explorer, join us for our adventures. E3 is leading a Women's Outdoor Adventure Group, starting with a Spring Hiking Series (registration ends tonight at midnight), and we are planning a "New to the Twin Ports" Outdoor Adventure group as well, so stay tuned! We are in the midst of planning spring/summer BWCAW trips, and still have 2 Guided Family Hikes coming up (March 14th and 28th). We are passionate about the outdoors, and want to share this passion with you...and we encourage you to do your part in preparing for our wilderness trips. Ask yourself, how comfortable are you with eliminating in the woods? :)
If you have funny stories to share about your wilderness adventure, we would love to hear them. :) You can feel free to comment on our blog below, or send them to us in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Let our laughter continue, and all in good fun! :)
