The Wilderness Listserv Home Page
For those who are not familiar with the Listservs, they are a wonderful
way to announce events, get questions answered, and learn a lot about a
topic. Basically, someone on the list sends a message which is
automatically sent to every one else on the list. Many lists offer a
digest version which collects individual messages and sends them all out
in one big message, very handy on active lists where there can be
hundreds of messages a day.
The Trackers Listserv
The Trackers Listserv discusses all aspects of wilderness survival,
tracking and Earth philosophy, as related to the Trackers school and Tom
Brown. It is a must for anyone interested in these topics. The digest
version comes out about once or twice a day.
