Hello, my name is Josh Vaughn Archer. I grew up in Snowﬂake AZ, where everyday I would spend outdoors, learning new things and also discovering new things. To me, being outdoors is so much more fun than being inside my house playing xbox. Not only do you get experience, but you get to build relationships with other people your working with. I applied for this program because its 80% outdoors work, and also to get more doors open for my future career in the ﬁeld. One of my favorite things to do in the great outdoors is to play guitar.. its gives me a sense of freedom and peace. For the past week or so I have been learning about wilderness ﬁrst responder, which was really fun. We got to do all different types of scenarios including, head injuries, gun wounds, and stabbings etc. In one of the scenarios I had to be a patient on LSD. I had to act lilke i was on LSD so that my peers could do a full patient assessment on me to ﬁgure out what was wrong with me. I am now a certiﬁed Wilderness First Responder, and also in CPR.
