Overview

You've seen it done on TV and in the movies many times. Now in this hands on experience you can try wilderness survival for yourself. Just a few of the things that you'll learn on this short intensive trip, are how to make fire, navigate without a compass day or night, find food and precure your own water. We will also go through the mind set of a survivor and why some people make it and some don't.

Pete was very knowledgeable and a great laugh while on the trip. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to try camping out in the wilderness because all the things you get shown could help you better than having Bear Grylls with you! Thanks Pete
