This paper is not rigorous in the academic sense. It does not set out to propose or test a theory. Nor does it seek to make sense of carefully collected data. Rather, I am attempting to describe the intuitive sense making process of my own mind reconciling things I have noticed in my experience working with people outdoors. In writing this way I am keeping to a tradition of experiential learning described by John Heron as Manifold Learning (Heron,1989). While this is not widely accepted as a rigorous approach it is, I believe, a rational one that allows the imagination and lay knowledge to openly compliment the conceptual mind and expert knowledge. This, then, is a description of my truth, not a truth and it need not be true for you. The references are those books that are most directly relevant to my theme and which helped illuminate the sense I was making of my experiences to the point of being able to attempt to articulate them to others.
