Weekend #5 - Wilderness First Aid (2021 Dates Pending)
Each weekend will feature multiple high quality hands-on experientially driven sessions. These sessions will cover the topics in a pragmatic sequential manner that will meet overland adventure enthusiasts of any skill level where they are at and rise them up over the course of the weekend.
Attendees will receive Blue Ridge Overland Gear bag themed to the weekend's topic as well as a patch, sticker, and event shirt unique to each weekend.
Primitive camping will be available onsite. Attendees will be given opportunities for question and answer sessions around the communal campfire Friday and Saturday nights. A chance to explore James River State Park and the surrounding area will be available on Sunday.
These skills events are rain or shine and attendees are expected to come prepared for a day outdoors in the elements. Gloves and closed toed shoes are recommended.
COVID-19 Update: Due to current events the 2021 dates are not confirmed. Hope to have them ready for release by the end of the year. If there is enough interest we may end up splitting the Comms & Navigation weekend into two separate weekends.
