 The idea of the ECOEE experience has had me on the edge of my seat since the beginning of the semester. The amount of anticipation experienced by myself and fellow classmates has grown exponentially throughout the planning phases. I hope to take away as much as possible from this experiential education opportunity. I look forward to traveling as a minimalist through many different environments and learning, first-hand, the skills of professionals in the field of outdoor education. I have accepted that the expedition will require a great deal of personal commitment on several levels. Accepting new challenges with a sense of vigor is my style. It is my goal to benefit from the many challenges we will encounter by analyzing, reflecting upon, and comparing different experiences. Throughout our travels, I hope to develop a personal career philosophy while further developing myself as a professional.
