Bottomless Bag Revival

The Bottomless Bag Revival is Karl's attempt to keep alive the original spirit, heart, and fun associated with adventure/experiential education.
Have you been hearing comments that adventure education has become just a series of "been there, done that" activities? Consider: it's not how many new activities are available, it's how well you use the old ones.
Karl's take on adventure programming is detailed in such a way that the basic development and combining of communication, cooperation, and trust within a matrix of fun and enjoyment becomes both the "grail" and raison d'être of this both paradoxically simple and profound approach to learning and life.
For faithful readers of Karl's various books on adventure/experiential education, "Revival" is basically the same book as The Bottomless Bag Again!?, with a new cover, new size, and some text changes.

Forget Me Knots

by Karl Rohnke

A gentle reminder of the knots, rope and lore used on a challenge ropes course. The rope vocabulary and knot sequences in this book relate, as much as possible, only to ropes (challenge) course activities. The book's content is meant more as a reminder than a definitive text on the subject of knots. A bowline-on-a-bight learned on day two of a workshop often becomes a tangle of memory snipets and rabbits-in-holes by the time a participant returns home. Here's text support that beats a last minute phone call looking for help on those elusive cordage twists and turns; illustrations and photographs throughout.
