The question that a lot of people always want to ask but don't when it comes to trailing: Is this real? Can a you or I really learn to follow a trail, track by track, without the aid of sand or snow or mud? It is common in myths, books, and movies to see incredible feats of tracking and several hyped up and popularized trackers make wild claims of skill with little to no verification, so it leaves a question, is the art of trailing real or just something humans wish they could do? Do you have to be a wilderness god or raised by indigenous people to really be able to trail?
Adult Courses and Long Term Programs
This is a nine month program devoted to studying, making, and using primitive weapons, tools, and technologies. The program will be focused on hunter gatherers of the Woodland Period in Vermont although not limited to that place or age because we do not have the same landscape to work with as they did. At the end of the program we will all put our tools to the test. 2014 Dates are up!
The Wilderness Survival Immersion Project is a nine month long program in the skills of primitive wilderness survival. It begins with a four day introduction and then is one weekend a month until the program ends with a four day full survival trip. This is the program for people who want to push the skills until they can make them work in any season or situation. Click here for more infomation.
