Has anybody taken part in an Outward Bound wilderness class or other program? Thoughts?

Check out www.nols.edu. Next fall I will be doing a NOLS semester in New Zealand. I'm getting college credit for backpacking, canoeing, and mountaineering in NZ for three months! NOLS is great if you're interested in outdoor education and they're very well known.

I'm a NOLS alumni and I can honestly say, it was one of the best things I ever did.

I have done some really cool and adventurous things since then, and I think that NOLS started it all for me. It changed my life and I think of it all the time. If you are even remotely interested in this type of thing, just GO!!! You will get more out of it then you ever imagined. From what I understand, NOLS is more hands on, Outward Bound more touchy-feely. To Rachel, you are going to LOVE your trip! People are always impressed when they hear you did NOLS, they have a "hard-core" reputation!
