The 2013 edition of the Snow Walkers’ Rendezvous in Fairlee, VT was a superb. Many tents were set up with wood smoke puffing out of 4″ stovepipes. Over 100 people attended the sold out weekend.
Willem Lange kicked off the program with a reading of a couple of his highly entertaining Vermont- based stories. Will’s vitae includes 8 books, numerous careers, and founding the Geriatric Adventure Society.
For me, the highlight of the evening was Tim Smith‘s talk- “Nature as Wallpaper” . Tim is a nationally known bushcraft and survival skills instructor, with his Jack Mountain Bushcraft School running courses out of Marsadis, Maine. He posted an entry about his talk on his blog.
Tim told attendees that his talk would be on the web, soon. Here is the podcast of that presentation- it’s short, but drives right to the point. Tim is an authentic voice connecting people to the natural world. I hope to take a course with him.
