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.
Griffin absolutely enjoyed your class. In fact, after he came home he was in our backyard building a dakota fire(I think it is called that?). We all had to come out to get the lesson on building one. Griffin was up till 11:00 that night in our bedroom still going on about all he learned. He had been saving his money for a while and could not be happier about his knife he got at your store.We cannot thank you enough for allowing Griffin to attend your class. He had the time of his life. This has been a passion of his for a long time and to be able to attend a class on survival skills meant so much to him. Thank you again very much
