Wildmen, this is an awesome opportunity to learn some powerful wilderness survival skills in good company. Personal empowerment is found in a direct sense of purpose as well as learned ability to do things that we at one point in time perceived as difficult to surmount. Allow your primordial wisdom to sync up with actual skills that will serve you and your loved ones. This is open to all men. Come join us…
