Toby Cowern, our British instructor, will be coming to do a course with us May 11-12. You can see a short bio on him here. If you want to see what attendees said about the last Toby trip, check out the reviews!
This will be an all-levels course: anyone who is interested is welcome, even if you've never been camping before. Topics may include but are not limited to:
Survival psychology and strategy
Priorities of survival
Use of sharp implements
Sourcing safe water
Emergency first aid
Survival equipment selection
Wilderness hazard identification
Carpooling will be required as there isn't much parking space; I will put drivers in touch with riders when we get closer to the date. It takes about 2.5 - 3 hours to drive to the site, and everyone should plan to arrive at 10 AM on Saturday. We will hike about 10-15 minutes in to the campsite and the weekend will begin. Everyone is responsible for their own food, and it is recommended that you bring something you can cook easily over a fire, as there won't be anything else!
Course kit list is here. Unless specifically discussed with Todd or I, you must have everything on this list to come on the course. Please email me if you have questions about gear- you do not have to spend hundreds of dollars to find all of these things. Consider what you do spend an investment- these items, kept in your car, could come in handy someday...
Hope to see a bunch of people there!
