Welcome to my new blog.

Here you will find information about my quest to learn (and teach) outdoor skills that are being lost.

Some will pigeon-hole them as "survival" skills. They are. I am not, however, a "watch out for the zombies" survivalist. I'm just a guy who enjoys getting out into the woods confident in my ability to make it out again when I'm ready to go home.

Here you will also find gear evaluations. I am an incurable gear freak and constantly convince myself that whatever I buy will be the last of that type of item I'll ever need...until the next great thing comes along. If I'm going to blow the kids' inheritance I might just as well pass along what I've learned.

I am also a stay-at-home dad and have two kiddos who are learning about the great outdoors. From time to time I'll write about my experiences in the woods with my 4 1/2 year old daughter and/or my 2 1/2 year old son.

With that, let's get this ball rolling...

Thanks for reading,
