Welcome to BOB MMXII – the most comprehensive Bug Out Bag training on the planet!
As all of you know, I have dedicated most of my time in 2011 to writing my new book: Build The Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit. This book starts hitting bookshelves and on-line outlets in May 2012.
I am celebrating the release of my new book by dedicating all of our courses in 2012 to Bug Out Training. 2012 is officially THE YEAR OF THE BUG OUT at Willow Haven Outdoor and I have designed an incredible action-packed 3-Day Training Clinic titled BOB MMXII which stands for BUG OUT BAG 2012. BOB MMXII will be held throughout the summer and fall of 2012 at Willow Haven – our 21-acre Indoor & Outdoor Training Retreat located in Anderson, Indiana.
I can’t tell you how excited I am about what we’ve got planned for the BOB MMXII Clinics. BOB MMXII is designed specifically around PREPARING, ASSEMBLING, UNDERSTANDING and USING a Bug Out Bag. It will be the most comprehesive and ‘hands-on’ Bug Out Bag Training Course in the world. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

BUG OUT 101
The clinic will begin with an intro to Bugging Out and Bug Out Philosophy. We will discuss everything from what might cause a Bug Out Scenario to different styles of Bug Out Bags (BOBs). We will also introduce the 12 key supply categories of a Bug Out Bag:
- Water & Hydration

This is a hands-on clinic. Much of your time will be spent ‘in-the-field’ learning and understanding best practices in using and and applying Bug Out Skill Sets. Below is a short list of skills you can expect to learn or enhance while at BOB MMXII:

BOB MMXII FAQs:Do I need to have a Bug Out Bag to attend BOB MMXII? No, you do not. You will need to bring a variety of items to use in field exercises (this list provided after you register) but you do not have to have a complete Bug Out Bag. If you already have one, we’d love for you to bring it with you and share your ‘build’ with the group. Can kids come? Yes, this is a family friendly clinic. We do ask that children be at least 10 years of age, however. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. Can I camp? Yes, we have 21 acres. Just find a spot. Most course attendees camp. We have several designated camping areas or you can make your own ‘back-country’ style. We do have an indoor bunk house as well and several private bunk rooms. You will need to bring your own pillow, linens and blankets. ‘Loaner’ wool blankets are provided. Do you have shower and restroom facilities? Yes. We have all of the modern amenities. Both the Men and Ladies restrooms are equipped with a shower and, of course, hot water. Do you provide any evening entertainment or activities? Each Saturday night we show an outdoor Bug Out Movie (weather permitting). We also have an awesome lodge with fireplace, seating area, television and all of the survival materials you could possibly want. You can read our books and magazines, practice knot-tying, use our knife sharpening station or just hang out by the fire place and chat with other like-minded preppers. You can also shop the WHO Survival Store. We also have a large outdoor campfire ring. This is certainly an evening ‘watering-hole’ for many.
