WFR, cooking, and other stuff
I haven't posted in awhile, but that's because I've been really busy going through Wilderness First Responder training. That was an intense class that lasted for 9 days. It was crazy and so much fun! I learned how to do many things, like how to make a splint with some branches, a triangle bandage, and an ACE wrap. It was awesome! It makes me want to take more courses like that. After that was finished we had a day of camp projects, and then my team had to teach on Thurs to make up for a snow day that we had like two weeks ago. It was pretty intense. But then we got a three day weekend, which is what I'm currently enjoying. I was supposed to go camping in the White Mountains for the three day weekend with another girl, but she fell and hurt her butt and can't carry a pack. So of course we couldn't go. But it would have been awesome to get to just hike in and be able to camp wherever we wanted to since everything is basically closed down for the winter. But we're going to go winter/snow camping later on, we've already decided. Other than that, the only thing I've really been doing is learning some new recipes. Today I learned how to cook stewed tomatoes, and then used it as a sauce to make a pizza. It was really yummy, especially for my first attempt at cooking. The stewed tomatoes are really simple to make, they just have to cook for a long time.
