If you were to create a hands on class for adults teaching the all the outdoor skills, what would that look like as far as class size, price and length.

I'd be interested in that.

I tend to tailor my classes pretty often--it would depend on what folks wanted, and how long they wanted to meet, etc.

For example, if someone just wanted to learn, let's say, map and compass skills, I'd probably set that up as a two part class--1 part "classroom" for maybe 1/2 hr to 1 hr, depending on the level of grounding in the fundamentals the student had.  Then I'd do a second part as a practical, which would be perhaps 2 hrs (but depending on the student, could be less or much more) of just using the skills outside a bit. 

But to set up just a basic outdoor skills and survival class without tailoring it to the students, and thus treating all as if they didn't have much in the way of the basics, I'd say class size not more than 10 people. Length--I would do probably a 1 day basic class, perhaps 5 to 8 hours long.  Price--that's negotiable.  Of the top of my head, depending upon having the location available, and so forth, I'd say $100/per person. 

Since I've got two folks who seem interested, I could start putting together a lesson plan for a basic class, and perhaps post that and see if folks would be interested--sound good?

That sounds great. I think a full day class would be awesome. An hour or so in the classroom or however long it takes and the rest of the day actually navigating. Could do something where we start at point A and have to navigate a few hours of wilderness to a way point and then on from there to the destination? Maybe a couple of way points and end up back at the beginning?

We could even have a fun competition where team 1 heads out for way point A and circles around. Team 2 leaves from the same starting area but heads for way point D going the other direction. Race to the finish. This might be really cool up north a little ways in the next couple of weeks. Combine a learning experience with some exercise and leaf peeping.  :D
