Simple Survival: 3 Needs to Meet - 3 Tools To Do It

Eat your yard Jax Farm

$220.00

Simple Survival is about developing survival skills to meet basic needs in an emergency situation with a minimal toolset. Imagine, you get separated from your group and can’t get back to your camp. You have only what you carried on you to survive. There are three basic needs you will need to meet to survive...shelter, water, fire. Without all the tools back at your camp, could you make it? In Simple Survival, you’ll learn to meet these three needs with just three basic tools, a knife, tarp, and pot. While most people carry far more than these items with them when they travel, no amount of gadgets or weaponry will help you if you can’t meet your minimal needs. At American Survival Co. we believe in contingency skill sets, should you become separated from your gear or something critical breaks on you in the field (see Joel’s Bushcraft Build-off Episode). Having to rely on less gear also makes you more mobile in the field. You will learn the primitive knowledge to meet every basic need in just about any location. Lighten your load and become a confident survivalist after this 2 day, 1 night course. Takeaways: With only a knife, pot and tarp as their only tools, students will learn how to acquire food, water, shelter and make fire. They will leave being able to survive any terrain with a few simple tools. Class Length: 2 Days/1 Night -- Start at 9 AM, Finish at 5 PM the following day https://americansurvivalco.com/class/simple-survival-skills/
