Outdoor Education… Without Boundaries

Lynchburg, VA, Thursday, November 17, 2009: Outdoor University announces Wilderness Survival Training (http://www.outdooru.com/courses/details/wild_340_wilderness_survival_training/) is open for registration.

What happens when you are deep in the wilderness, and after many hours tracking the most majestic 7-point elk you've ever seen, you find yourself completely disoriented – even though you've been hunting these parts for years. Nothing looks familiar… then suddenly the weather changes. Temperatures plummet. Thick fog descends. Rain and snow beat down on you, chilling you to the bone. Cold, wet, and lost. Will you make it back alive?

Learning to survive in the wilderness is a skill not only for hunters, but also for those who raft, fish, hike, climb, ski, four-wheel drive, enjoy nature and so on. You can’t predict where or when you might find yourself in a survival situation, and that's why preparation is of paramount importance.

Hunting, Fly Fishing, Hiking, Kayaking, Wilderness Photography, Backpacking, Sailing, Canoeing, Camping, Salt Water Fishing, Fresh Water Fishing, Climbing, Boating, Backcountry Skiing…
…Wherever your passion for the outdoors takes you, are you prepared for when your recreational activity becomes a survival situation?
