Being prepared for the unexpected is essential. Our courses will prepare you for basic wilderness survival should you encounter the unfortunate event of being stranded in the backcountry. Survival training provides drivers and explorers with the knowledge and skills to stay safe and alive. Some of the fundamental skills you will learn include building fire and shelter, how to make water safe to drink, and what you should have in a survival bag and how to use it. We will also train you on how to signal for help, including what signals work and when to use different signaling techniques.

This was exactly the kind of trip I built my FJC for...getting to those remote places that most folks have forgotten about. Chuck did a great job dealing with a large group of people.


I already know how to make fire and survive but it was still fun to see the other guys learning and trying.....
Thanks a bunch for a good time Chuck...


My dad and I decided to run Poughkeepsie Gulch at the end of the day. Admittedly a little too difficult for my equipment and experience level. When we came to "The Wall", a crazy steep, rough, and tippy climb, I knew I was in for trouble. My truck ended up getting high-centered on the transfer case in a dangerous spot. Lucky for me, 
Chuck was there, and he had come prepared with the proper equipment and knowledge to get me safely unstuck and keep my 
truck from tipping. Thanks a million Chuck!
