But unlike many similar lecture events, this lesson in resiliency doesn't end in the classroom. The following day, many of the Airmen will be hiking to the summit of Vermont's highest mountain, Mt. Mansfield as part of their official resiliency training. At 4,393ft, this peak will provide a moderately difficult hike for the more than two dozen Airmen participating in the event. Time spent in the outdoors, especially working in a team setting, is a time-tested method for practicing and improving resiliency skills. Nature provides spiritual inspiration for many, while the challenge of the tough hike tests physical and mental fortitude. And what would a big hike like this be without the social skills found from working together as a team to achieve a common goal?
We're excited for this great turn out and looking forward to the inspiring stories that come from this two day resiliency boosting event. Good luck Team Vermont!
