A Student's Journal


guide and packer school DAY 10 - Wednesday

My turn for Camp Jack chores. Got up before the wranglers to help LeRee around the kitchen tent while she cooked breakfast. First, I lit the coleman lanterns, then built a nice fire in the stove and got the Cowboy Coffee boiling. Made sure the woodrack was full, plenty of kindling cut and the water buckets were full. Cody is very adamant about not graduating us or placing us as guides if we aren't dependable as students.

Classroom started with advantages of mules over horses, then a lecture on packing pointers and "do's and dont's". Then we reviewed on mantying and Decker packing; everyone packed loads on a mule and we took a five-hour ride over all kinds of obstacles and terrain, each leading a single pack animal.
