  • Knife- one for significant carving/bushcraft
  • Cotton Bandana or something you don't mind loosing

    Would love to attend, but can't make the early morning class time this week. Good luck out there.

    Hi, where can I purchase a Ferrocerium Rod?

    • Jeromie J.

      You can get them at Walmart I believe. Or GI Joes army surplus in el cajon.

    Also, how long will the event be?

      Class will be about 2 hours but your certainly welcome to stay around. I'll be camping there.

    SWOT- I hope you're even 1/2 as excited for the event as I. We have some really kicked-up content this round. I'm looking to fish there in the morning before and after the event. I have a campsite there as well and we're hoping to maybe make some utensils around the fire, etc. Looking forward to seeing everyone and seeing lots of bird-nests turning into fires!

    I have a wedding that evening... How long do we think this meet up will last? Will it be physically demanding? I am very interested in the content, but it might not be the right day for me...

      Actually, just tried making reservations and they are completely booked. Pretty much full up until late August or September. I even called to make sure the online reservation system was accurate. She did say to keep checking as they sometimes get cancellations.

      Kyris- Hopefully you guys were able to lock in that other spot we talked about today. Camping or not, it will be a good time.

    Julius- Definitely _DO NOT_ need to camp there. You can drive in and meet with us, or you can equally park outside of lake 5 on the hill and walk in without paying.

    We (My kids and myself) are avid fans of the Discovery channel show: Dual Survivors series starring David Canterbury (original cast) and Cody Lundin. This class will be a good Survival scenario hands-on for us.

      Dave is a great guy. Here's a video of when I went out to his property to complete the Advanced Class- hardcore 3.5 days.. https://www.youtube.co...­
