Camping 101 offered for Jackson middle schoolers

Participants will learn how to set up a tent, manage campsite cooking and cleaning and use a compass. They’ll also get a lesson in Leave No Trace Principles, a set of outdoor ethics designed to help people enjoy the outdoors without harming the environment or wildlife. 

$20. Friday night dinner and Saturday morning breakfast included. Register by Sept. 19 at the Cullowhee Recreation Center or the Cashiers-Glenville Recreation Center. 828.293.3053 or 828.631.2020.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
