          Probably the best knots, ropes, and rigging class ever

          I’ve got to say that this class was by far my favorite Pathfinder class so far. Not that any were bad, but this class was just fun. I was wondering about the time and money spent traveling to Ohio to learn about ropes, knots, and rigging, but it was well worth the expenditures. Dave, Shawn, and Kevin are excellent instructors, and you just can’t recreate the learning environment by watching YouTube videos. Plus, I met some new friends. Highly recommended.
