This course is so good that both Justin B and Kate S have both signed up for it for the first week. The double fact of learning from a couple of real professionals in the landscape survey game and the location, the fort at Magna makes this one heck of a great weeks surveying. I am deeply jealous and am looking forward to looking at the results.
