Shelters and Knots Course


Out of stock


When bad weather hits: lightening, flooding, extreme cold or heat, intense wind, etc… having a snug shelter can mean the difference between life and death. And even when the weather is fine, I always feel better when I know my “bed” is ready for me as night falls. At SERE School (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) the “rule of threes” went like this: a human can go about 30 days without food, three days without water, and on average 3 hours without shelter.  Building a solid shelter and meeting a host of other essential needs can easily be met by having a solid foundation in knot-tying.  So we’ll spend the day empowering each other through tying knots and building great shelters!

Our instructor Jessie Krebs has been a United States Air Force survival instructor, has taught all kinds of people outdoors for 25 years, and starred in National Geographic’s “Mygrations” as part of a human “herd” traveling across the Serengeti, as well as in “Kicking and Screaming, AND most recently on the Science Channel’s “Hacking the Wild.” She will get you DIALED on your survival skills!
