I have taken several classes from different instructors over the years. I would like to hear your reviews of the Wilderness survival classes and instructors you’ve taken and trained with.
Here are my favs:
1. Reggie Bennet - Mountain Shepherd Survival School.
Reggie is a former SERE instructor. He’s a good teacher. The classes I took were Hunble Thunder and Hidden Pursuit. Both classes were 4 days in length. HT focuses on the basic elements of surviving on your own for 72 hours or until search and rescue arrives. HP addressed basic survival skills in an escape and evasion scenario.
2. Cody Lundin - ALSS - Excellent teacher, intense dude.
I trained with Cody back in 2008-09, before he got his TV show. The classes I took were:
The Nothing Class - basically a weekend in the desert with no food, no blankets, no sleeping bags, no sunglasses, no knife, no rope...only two water bottles. Excellent class apart from the nausea and headache associated with not eating. Focus was on working as a team and utilizing what is around you. Excellent class
Essential Abo - skills building class where you can bring food and other gear. Focus is on skill development. Excellent class
