May Skills Day

As booshway of the skills weekend held at my home this past weekend I am happy to report that two pilgrims, Mike Staigmiller and Casey Wiley, each completed 3 requirements for their bossloper degrees including canoe packing, horse packing and skinning and preparing a beaver hide and made substantial progress towards the completion of three more requirements. Thanks to you, Gene, for your leadership and teaching sign language and the skills weekend concept and to Mike and Linda Nottingham. Mike oversaw the beaver skinning and hide preparation and Linda the horse packing. Mike N and I conducted a tracking class. And thanks to my wife, Angie, for putting up with all of us, especially me having come down with sudden illness, and helping with meals.
