Ron Waline / Tim Smith

Interview with Tim Smith of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft School and Podcast out of Maine, USA. Tim and I talk about some of the underlying educational principles of his long-term wilderness living educational programs, specifically the value of learning by doing and the idea of baseline and how it relates to our ability not only to take care of ourselves in the wild places, but also how it may affect our happiness and ability to live well in the not so wild places. Tim also describes some of the traits he witnesses his student gaining through wilderness living including confidence in their abilities to take care of themselves and a general sense of empowerment.
