The tag on my hammock reads “Step 1 Relax.” There are no other steps; it’s a succinct instruction.
And a decent one to keep in mind at work—not just trail work, all work. All not work, too, in fact.

Something that I knew about SCA, but didn’t fully appreciate until recently, is the storied history and shear diversity of the programs that they offer.
My program, for example, is a Residential Corps Program. This means that I share my living space, meals, and community with 22 coworkers at our repurposed Knights of Columbus camp in rural Hawley, Massachusetts.
