Survival Trip




The Survival Trip spent the day getting ready for our trip.

Long Time Trip Leaders Jon and Anne Smith (who were counselor when Dan went to camp) taught everyone how to roll a survival pack and how to tie the right knots to make a pack out of a wool blanket. We practiced a few times until it was easy.

We learned how to sharpen our knives.

We all helped package our food by day per meal.

Then we learned out to make cortage (rope) out of milkweed and other fabrics.

We also learned how to carve our own spoons out of cottonwood.

Jon showed us out to make a bow drill fire.

Tonight we will make dinner and learn how to navigate using the stars.

We are really excited for our trip that begins on Boulder Mountain and ends in Capital Reef! We are going to hike along the stream the entire way so we will be cool and have plenty of water. We're excited to learn skills like how to build a trap, cook our own food, and to build shelters.

How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
