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.
Willowhaven Outdoors and their training facility is my premeir choice for survival training. The 22+ acre facility offers a multitude of terrain and environments to learn, practice and perfect your bushcraft and survival skills. The abandoned home is unique to the property where disaster foraging and survival skills are further honed. Creeks experience and passion is evident in the way that he instructs. He ensures that every participant understands the material/ skill and is able to leave with the knowledge and ability to repeat what they learned. Thanks to Creek and the great group at Willowhaven, I am confident that I am now prepared to provide for my family in any survival situation.
