If you have been looking to go out into the woods with an experienced instructor who will really help you improve your skills, no matter what level you're at, this is the meetup for you!

I've made a separate website for this course to contain all the information I want to give out:

You can either sign up on that page or on this one, but please do sign up!  

Briefly, Toby is a UK Royal Marines reservist who specializes in arctic survival.  He comes to the US every year and teaches courses in California, Texas and the northeast (Massachusetts and/or New York). 

On his courses he goes over survival psychology, priorities, shelter building, water and food sourcing, fire building, land navigation, first aid and much, much more.  He is the real deal and we're lucky to have him. 

There will be an opportunity to go fishing on this trip!  If you're interested, please get a Massachusetts fishing license prior to the trip, and pack fishing gear.  Think survival- a few hooks and some fishing line?

The cost for this course will be $150 if you sign up before May 1 and $200 if you sign up afterwards.  If this is a significant hardship for you please talk to me and we can discuss working something out in trade.  You can either pay here, via the website and PayPal, or to me in person, whatever works for you.

Hope to see you there!

    An absolutely phenomenal experience! I learned so much not only from Toby, but also from the mistakes and successes of everyone on the trip. Can't wait to practice everything! Huge thanks to Toby, Mike, Lisa, and all my fellow survivors.
