I am an avid outdoorsman. I have been outdoors since I was a kid. I was in Boy Scouts until we moved during my junior year of high school. At which point I was Life rank starting to work toward Eagle. I have been camping, hunting, fishing, hiking as long as I can remember. I have done presentations and workshops with groups ranging from children to adults. I have done several presentations/demonstrations in regards to fire making and knot tying (most popular) and many other topics. I have worked with a variety of scouts and leaders. We had a preparedness group where we would discuss various topics related to being prepared, canning, gardening, natural disasters, etc. I truly enjoy sharing the knowledge I have with others.

  1. Hey Adam, would like to get some of my guys to your class, but we have a campout already scheduled. I also missed the last couple gun shows. Here’s my problem, I’d like to catch up with you sometime in June and get some bracelet supplies for Josh to take to camp. If you could let me know when you may be available we can come to you or if everything is packed, that’s OK too. Look forward to hear from you. Have fun at your class. Thanks, Jeff

    • Jeff,
      I am looking into having another class later in the summer. The second class is going to be more intense and in a more remote/primitive setting. I will be putting the information on the site when and if we are able to work out all of the details.
      As for supplies most things are accessible. E-mail me or you can use the contact form and we can set something up.
      Thank you,
