Some of us organizers are getting together to learn some wilderness skills so that we can 1) be better prepared in the wilderness when we take y'all out and 2) offer future opportunities for skill building for the general group.
The four topics we plan to learn/teach each other are:
Building shelter (debris shelter, lean to, tarp shelter)
Building a fire with wet wood
Finding wild edibles in the woods
Psychology of survival
We are planning on doing this event on 3/12 and it will take up most of the day. If you any expertise in one of these areas and can either a) show us some things and/or b) provide us with info, please send me a message through the site or reply here.
