I really don't know what to say about today and this week, that hasn't already been said in great detail, other than thanks. Thanks to everyone at Idaho Adventure learning, and M.I.L.E.S., and I.S.U., Rosemary, Laura, Kelsey, Carolyn, Rick, Chuck, Justin and his river guides from the outdoor program, and thanks to all of the presenters, and presentations that we had this week were great! I feel extremely fortunate to able to participate in this amazing program, and meet all these brilliant and dedicated people who come together to make this special even happen. They are all true professionals, who love what they do, and what they do is awesome. I learned so much, about so many things this week, that it will probably take me the rest of the summer to fully absorb what all happened in such a short period of time. This has truly been one of the best weeks of my teaching career. Thank you! :)

Hi Joel.  I was an on-site learner last year and I could not agree with you more regarding how I felt by the end of the MILES workshop.  It really is hard to put into words isn't it?  Rosemary and her people were incredible and the whole experience awoke my inner scientist again.  I'm glad you feel the same way.

It is good to see that everyone had a great experience.  Even as a distance learner I learned more this week about our ecosystem and how you could incorportate it into your curriculum.  There is great ideas about how to change the aestetics of the river in Pocatello and it's recreational parks.

More than ever I want to be an on-site adventurer next summer!  Thanks for sharing the experience online.
