Just finished up teaching our 5-week program in primitive skills. We had fantastic weather and a great group of folks! We went on walkabouts in the mountains, spent time tanning deerhides and making bows, visited friends at Hopi, and checked out archeological sites throughout the Southwest to better understand the context for the skills we were learning.
Now I am busy marketing the new book on “The Modern Hunter-Gatherer” and finishing up our Fall season with our November Trapping Course in Utah. I recently had the good fortune to have Outside editor Joe Spring accompany us on a course recently to do some filming for my Outside Online column. He should be posting a variety of how-to videos on the site shortly.
Piggybacking off that, I recently finished 11 videos on Desert Survival that are now posted on our page on Youtube- http://www.youtube.com/user/AncientPathways -These are largely lecture but I will be posting more hands-on videos on bushcraft and living off the land in the near future.
Enjoy the Wilds!
