Have you taken a wilderness survival school? I'm going to on in the next few months...I'm pretty excited but a little nervous.

North Florida Survival school. It's on a "weekend warrior" course but I've heard some really good things about it.

Yes, took one in November with this guy:
http://www.byronkernssurvival.com/Courses.html
It was the Safe Return course and it was awesome! I felt so good after the class that I am taking 2 more. (I currently have tarp shelters set up all over my back yard and about 18 different knots in my tool box now..

Maybe I should try your guy also?..
I hope you are as blown away by your class as I was. If your guy is as good as mine was you won't have time to be nervous.

The course I'm taking is $250 which is a Weekend Warrior course. Friday, Saturday and part of Monday. There is a week-long course that is around $950...I won't be taking that one anytime soon. But I figured with $250, that's a small investment for skills training.

I have the paper work and deposit in to take the Bare Bones course next.


I am looking forward to your review of the North Florida Survival school...

So, when is your survival course/ are you signed up yet? Does Steve give a list of suggested items to bring with you?

For beginners it might be valuable. It is hard to find anyone that teaches these kind of classes that can really add a lot to most people's knowledge base if they have grown up n the outdoors.

It's in March and he sends out a list once you've paid for the course.
