What I meant by leaving a lot of questions unanswered is that most courses are written for a national audience and REI has many issues that are regional in nature. Those issues, I think, can only be learned on the street.
I’m not saying jump right in, but rather that you won’t find all the answers in courses. Hope this helps. Sincerely, Kristine
