"I gotta tell you how impressed 'A' was last week when you showed us the rain ponchos in your bag! She said 'Thom comes really prepared to class!' She completely trusts you because you've given her the joy of adventure and exploration, while also helping her feel safe and protected - thank you!"

"Hey Thom, it was great participating in the class the other day. I really respect your perspective and the values that you try to impart to the kids. And it's fun! How do you work that deal with the raccoon to show up at just the right time?"

"Thom, I just back from Montana on an Elk hunt and I had to tell you that the fire building skills you taught me up north in August absolutely saved our hunt! The first 3 days of the hunt we were basically in survival mode with rain, sleet, hail and snow. Our gear was soaking wed each day and without those fire skills you taught me getting a fire started would have been impossible! Thanks again and I look forward to your next set of classes here in northern Michigan."

"Giving urban children the opportunity to learn about and become involved with nature was a very valuable and enriching experience (Birdhouse Building Project)."
