    I really enjoy your videos. Mainly I watch different practitioners to see others' takes on the methods other than what I use. I find it fantastic that you are passing this knowledge on to your boy. If I had the chance to have any parts of my life to do again, I would choose the times I spent with MY sons in the wild just so that I could enjoy them again. None of this 'do-over' to fix regrets for me!
