I said that this summer after some tragic ending to some missions.
“If only they had been in my REI class the outcome would have been different“.
And while it is easy to armchair quarterback the decisions others make, it doesn’t discount the truth. Wilderness emergencies can be prevented or managed by having the right mindset, skills, and gear. I pack 25+ years of stories and experience into my REI classes and we work hands on skills that can keep you alive. This year, we are also handing out my favorite emergency shelter and firestarters, having some of Team BUSAR visit, and donating some of the class fee to the team.
These classes tend to reach capacity rather quickly, so keep checking back to see when one is coming to your area.
First up is Knoxville on Wednesday January 30th. Info here
