Spring trip to learn new survival skills

  • This location is shown only to members

  • We will be loading up the canoes & kayaks and headed to florida for a few days, to learn a few survival skills and a couple of Jerky recipes. We will head to an area between the everglades and the inland waterway, where the locals seem to have a problem with the manatees and fresh water porpoises running into and damagin boats. We will be staying at the hunting lodge of legendary sportsman Floyd R. Turbo. Where we will learn how to make jerky from both a manatee calf and a young porpoise. You will be able to recreate what it was like for the Native American Seminole to live off the land. An added bonus for anyone who has the desire to bag a boa constrictor or a crocodile, is we can get the hides tanned and a pair of custom boots made for a nominal fee of about 250.00. This may be the greatest spring adventure we have ever posted. It will be limited to 12 people and when the final costs come in they will be updated here. We will be driving overnight so that we can help minimize travel costs.

    How many days is this trip going to be? I would love to see some snake wrestling and see who controls the head.

    I thought you did not paddle with the alligators or crocodiles. Boots, belt and purse are going to be mad at you for ignoring them. :)
