Our guide at Rausch did not explain much or give any tips. The guide at Aoaa was much more involved. I get that the instructions say no teaching. Like he never told us there were often two paths to take up the same path, an easy way and a more difficult way. After lunch he did describe things more.If you have already done a green guided at Rausch, I have to assume that the 101 course would be very similar. The 201 maybe a little more intense, but I would assume the 101 and the guy that are similar. Did they explain many things to you prior to your departure? Understand, there was Zero classroom time it was all in the field. However, the instructor did explain a lot over the radio. Again, she was cautious, but I don't think any of them want to have a wreck under their watch. I can't say I blame them.
