I do not choose to be a victim
Of the circumstances around me.
I seek self reliance, not dependence.
I do not wish to be looked after,
But rather to be a resource for others.
I am able to provide basic needs
With knowledge and natural tools.
Sometimes I fail, but more often succeed.
Regardless of the outcome, I never give up.
My mind is my most valuable resource.
I understand that Mother Nature is not my Mother,
But will still provide me with my basic needs;
Water, Food, Fire & Shelter.
I prefer a landscape view
Over the view across my desk.
I yearn to be outdoors – learning, exploring and connecting.
I sleep more peacefully under the stars,
Than under a roof.
I am self sufficient.
I see value in primitive survival skills.
Fire is one of my prized accomplishments,
And my knife is my loyal companion.
I practice my skills and train my body,
For the day when I might be tested.
With everything to lose,
And everything to gain,
Luck has no place in my destiny.
With God’s help,
I have made the preparations necessary to get me through.
I just wanted to let you know that Tom and I had an absolutely amazing time at the Unofficial Hunger Games Survival Course. Creek and Clint were friendly and genuine and definitely know their survival stuff! The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained, the training was all relevant, and the service was beyond fantastic. The best thing about the whole experience is that I now feel confident that I would know what to do in a survival situation. Having the basic knowledge that was taught at Willow Haven is a start to a great education in survival. Thanks so much and we hope to return in the future for a 3-day course!
