String, cordage, rope, line — whatever you call it, it’s nature’s original duct tape. In this 3 hour course, you will learn useful knots and their application. These knots are extremely valuable and can be used for creating primitive tools to setting up a storm-proof shelter. There is no shortage of information and tutorials about knots online, but which ones do you need to have in your arsenal, which are the most valuable?
Join us as we examine the most useful knots for wilderness survival (and sometimes life in general). We often get asked what skills would be the most helpful to learn before attempting some of your longer survival skills. Knots skills are key, the devil is in the details. This workshop will provide you the training to effectively create useful knots and apply them to situations you might find yourself in.
