So far, we have read Jack London's "To Build a Fire" , excerpts from Thoreau's Walden, and connected those two to Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild. With each piece we read, we take some time to reflect and connect.

Head on over, download and take a look at some of the kmz files, and leave some constructive criticism.
