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.
Headed to Asheville on February 15th. Future dates will be posted on the calendar and class pages.
These classes tend to reach capacity rather quickly, so keep checking back to see when one is coming to your area. Knoxville only has 4 spots left.
