Glad to hear that John's still teaching. It's been a few years, but I've taken his classes at least 4-5 times. He's always made it entertaining and instructive. I'm definitely overdo for a refresher course, and would look at his classes as the first choice.

Just be sure to never complain to John about toenails cut too short.

I just signed up for the WFR course provided by the National Outdoor Leadership School through my local university chapter. Its an 80 Hour course over 10 days, mostly out in the field. On the list of requirments they would like me to bring a day pack. All I have is a 3 day hiking pack, and a basic hiking back pack that isnt very large. The 3 day pack seems very large for these items and I hate to lug it around. Does anyone know if they require me to carry anything other than my own gear? I can stuff all my winter clothing, rain suit and water bottles into my back pack, but not much else. I hate to invest in a day pack if its not really required. Any info from anyone that has taken these types of courses would be great. Thank you.

There are lots of options for technical day packs. If you want the very best, buy Arc'teryx. Black Diamond and Osprey are also excellent. I recommend the Arc'teryx RT25. It has a RollTop lid, thermoformed straps like their larger multi-day packs, water bladder pocket, rope carrier, axe loops, etc. It's damned near waterproof.
