This course contains the fundamentals of trip preparation and logistics, essential for planning, embarking and returning from any overnight wilderness trip. It is intended to introduce the students to the necessity of well organized trip preparation and the safety margin created not only for a trip without incident but also in the event of an unplanned incident. This module will be taught in context and put into practice repeatedly while performing trip preparation for field based modules, e.g. sailing.
