Out of the frying pan and into the fire...

I decided that this year would be the beginning of my love affair with uncomfortable situations.  

Scott Schuldt, in conjunction with Anchor Art Space, was offering a mapping workshop.  I knew at once that I would do it and it scared me to death.  I am self taught in the math department and so, needless to say, I am capable in the basics and what I've had to learn for my business,  anything else is foreign territory. 

I must admit that when we began, I was totally lost then, with Scott's able instruction, I slowly began to make sense of it all.  By the time the workshop had ended, I felt empowered with a skill I never knew I needed.. and I'm still wondering what exactly to do with this new information.. it will be useful, I think, when in the woods.  I will use it somehow, sometime.  

There's a lot to be said for leaping out of the comfort zone! 

learning the basics before going outside to map

Dakota Creek Shipyard: an excellent subject for mapping

My finished product: I now know, without being able to get there,
how far it is to that tug boat.
