No, but we don’t allow kids under 12 to use knives or the ax.

Yes, absolutely. The cost would be the regular per person cost.

Except for extra caution with sharp edges, no. We keep the pocketknives closed and the ax covered when not being used.

We have multiple locations we use depending on what degree of difficult clients prefer.

If it’s the Spring, Summer or Fall, use layers to keep your body comfortable. If the winter, we’ll be using the same gear, but the same principle applies. Wear comfortable pants and a top that you can move easily in.  Use a non-cotton base layer, preferably lightweight (cool days) or a layer made for wicking sweat and heat away

Wear eye protection and use Croakies to secure them. All wallets and phones get put into dry storage and travel with you.

Call for recommendations, if needed. Remember that wind adds windchill. Check this chart to estimate and dress accordingly: Wind Chill Calculator (noaa.gov)

Also, always check the weather for our local weather
