We are at the peak of the cold season, it's time to get your cold weather gear out on the trail. This trip is ideal for beginners. We will be camping 5 minutes from our vehicles on 40 private acres where Nickofthewoods teaches wilderness medicine and survival courses in warmer months. A suggested gear list will be sent to all registered RSVPs.

You can arrive anytime Saturday and hike down to the site. Detailed directions will be sent out one week prior to everyone who has registered. We will have a large parachute shelter set up over the fire area. Expand your skill set and gain experience in the following and more.

• Knife, ax, and saw use
• Snowshoeing
• Fire building
• Camp cooking

Fee covers:
• Some group gear and supplies
• 100% of the money raised goes right back into this group

Register by sending payment via paypal to "[masked]" Cash and checks are also accepted but must be received before the trip unless otherwise stated. Please contact me with any questions. I am happy to help.
