Wilderness Survival Presentations

I’m headed back to Canoecopia in March for a presentation on wilderness survival for paddlers titled “How To Avoid Becoming One With Nature Through The Composting Process.” As such I wanted to be clear about what you won’t hear in my survival presentations:

1. Long, drawn out discussion of equipment; kit is secondary, knowledge is primary.

2. Acronyms that are supposed to explain it all.

3. Cute variations of the word survival (ex. thrival).

4. Proclaiming that the skills I teach are universal and will apply anywhere. They won’t.

5. Dogmatic or spiritual approaches to outdoor living.

The focus is on practicality, reality, and honesty. For a review and information on what’s in my presentations, check out Bryan Hansel’s Nessmucking blog.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
