Before taking this course, I was not readily available to go out into the outdoors and survive hiking or canoeing. Tying hiking ropes knots, the weather, canoeing, hitches, and learning about the compass are all very important when learning about nature. These aspects are all part of finding ways how to successfully conquer the day. After taking this course, I know how to manage my experience when wanting to go on a hiking or canoeing trip.
For example, I wrote a paper that clearly explains my trip plans for a canoeing trip. I had to explain the process I would take to successfully go on this trip by myself if necessary.
