We finally got to see Andrew Komm and Sarah (Klaben) Komm this weekend. They live maybe 3miles from us, both out of the Army and enjoying civilian life. We got to talking about grandiose plans involving cabins, training centers, maps (Harriman and West Point, for starters), and in general orienteering life. I'm starting to think Team Campbell might just take a swing at that (enough of this conventional nonsense) somewhat along the "Swampfox model." I can think of a few others pondering this idea...enough of us with vacation/caretaker cabins in the right places, some creative school/work options, and perhaps one can be untethered from a conventional lifestyle and simultaneously increase the options for contributing to O options for those working through those less flexible life stages. Among the options out there, I have to admit this one's high on the list of things that excite us.

That sounds neat, Tori. A lot of people over the years have dreamed of some kind of place/facility to train out of somewhere in the greater Harriman area, and I used to, too. Nowadays to the extent I dream about those things, I dream more about something in the Lake George, CO area, given my more western orientation these days. But it could be done, and it wouldn't have to involve unthinkably large sums of money.

Maybe you know the UK has a national training center in the Lakelands District. I know very little about it other than it exists, but I have always imagined it must be something along the lines of what people have dreamed about for the Harriman area.
