A Guide School Student's Journal


guiding and packing

DAY 27 - Saturday

Long Day. Up at daylight, wrangled the stock in, took camp down, mantied up, packed the mules and headed back the 16 miles to camp. We all got lots of long-string experience today. Our loads were a little lighter on the way out, and we've all learned enough by now that our packs rode pretty well. No mishaps, and we actually got back to the school main camp by 1 p.m. After taking care of the horses and all the gear, we were plenty ready for a good supper. Great pack trip! Gave us a good chance to tie together everything we've been learning.

Seems like a fast 4 weeks overall, but definately a very full 4 weeks. I never dreamed Ild learn so much. Now I'm chomping at the bit to get out on my first guiding job and put my education to work.

GOOD LUCK AND BEST WISHES IF YOU JOIN NEXT YEAR'S CLASS.
