For the last three days, myself and a few other rangers and trackers participated in a course – the first subject being tracks and signs, and the second being trailing. Colin Patrick was the leader of the course and he made it extremely enjoyable – it was a great way to learn.
The trailing part of the course was the most difficult. In order to pass, you need to find a track and stay on it without losing the tracks or signs. It looks easy when a professional does it but when you’re doing it yourself it is tough, especially through different types of terrains.
Regardless of the difficulties, we thoroughly enjoyed the course. So, on behalf of myself and the others, a great thank you to Kapama and Colin for the wonderful experience.
