Re: Top Bar Hive Books and/or courses
Very good question. And the answer as far as I know it is that it is a sense. I have a reputation as one of those that does anything I want. At least that is how it appears to theirs. But I do have a strong tendency to do new things well right out of the gate. THere are two things I tell people when they ask me abotu it.

As far as Beekeeping. I have found it to be full of spook stories if you only listen to others. Sure there are problems. but I have not found one that is all that terribly difficult to figure out and move on. For those that are looking for all the answers before they start. that will never happen. Are you ready to fly by the seat of your pants with no more of a feeling that you know what is goign on for more than 5 days? Are you certain in yourself that you will be able to work your way through the mistakes. unplanned events and the outright unexpected? Have you armed yourself with the knowledge, not answers, of bees and an assortment of solutions to various problems so that you are equipped to choose the best path forward for yourself and your situation?
In the end you are not going to find beekeeping in a book. you will find it in yourself.
