Subject: thanks for the training
I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding job of training us (Calaveras S and R) last weekend in Big Trees State Park. It was not only informative, but truly fun! As a former primary school teacher, I bet you were a "kick in the pants" to have in a classroom, but I always felt that the busy little boys in my classroom were the truly intelligent ones! Okay, enough about you and back to me. Although I've turned out to be an excellent "lost" person, I loved the tracking and it is something I hope to continue doing. I went running in Big Trees Park this morning and all our foot prints were gone. They have a bulldozer up there and are leveling the roadway, so we certainly picked the right weekend for the workshop.
Again, I just wanted to thank you for teaching us and for all that you do in the real world - finding the lost and saving lives! I'm glad you are writing your stories down, because you are going to end up with one amazing book.
Also, many thanks to Ralph. He was wonderful, too.
If you have any pictures you'd like to add send me an email.

Once again the annual Tracker’s Camp is coming to town. Every year we have trackers from law enforcement, search and rescue, along with other trackers from all over the globe.
You will have the opportunity to see old friends, make new friends and work with other trackers. Just bring your tent, sleeping bag and have fun.
The cost of the trackers camp is $125.00 per person (Click Here to use PayPal), which covers the cost of your food, drinks. So don’t miss out on the good barbecues and fun. Reservations must be in no later than June 1, 2010.
