November 8-12th, 2017. In this 5 day class you will learn, hands on, all the skills you need to survive comfortably in the wilderness. We will teach you how to build primitive shelters that will keep you dry and warm through the worst weather. We will show you how to start fires with the bowdrill and make sure you are proficient in even the worst conditions. You will learn how to find and purify water in any environment. You will learn how to set various traps to procure food. We will teach you what plants you can use for food or medicine. We will even teach you cordage, containers, and tools. When you complete this course, you will be proficient enough at primitive skills to walk off into the wilderness, with little or no tools, and survive indefinitely.
What to bring:
Paracord or Bankline,
Tent or tarp (optional),
