    Teaching and learning

    May it be with good intention or not, sometimes we find ourselves telling people how to to do things. Telling someone how to do something is sometimes just as bad as telling them not to do it. No one likes to be told, rather shown how something is done and let them decide for themselves if...

    Survival skills badge - realism vs safety

    I've run 2 survival skills camps now, and have been struck by what a constant compromise they entail.
