I have over 50 years experience in the outdoor wilderness and survival training. I have been involved with search and rescue with Washoe County, Nevada since 2000. I was appointed to the Nevada State Board of Search and Rescue in 2015. I started my survival training when I was 6 years old (military schools at the age of 5 up to and including West Point). I attended and graduated the Northern Warfare School at Ft. Greely Alaska in 1976. I have been a certified man tracker in Nevada and still practice my skills. I have been a back country guide, survival and security consultant and instructor as well as a marksmanship instructor for over 40 years. ( I still learn new skills every day.)

I have spent time in North ,East and West Africa, Middle East, China, Europe, Alaska, Nevada and the Sierras working, learning, teaching and practicing various survival skills and techniques. If I do not have the answer, I can get it for you.

Your best survival tool is your mind. Use it!!!!
