Welcome!

Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I thought that it would be fun to start an open forum of survival topics and outdoor skills that others can refer to for information and instruction. I will post a survival topic or skill and give some information on it. I will also be posting excerpts from my survival manual that I have been writing. Feel free to comment on it, or ask about a topic that I have not yet covered. Even professionals can learn a new way to do something. In this way we can all help each other. If you have a specific experience that you would like to share please feel free to do so at your own risk of others' comments. If you disagree with someone please be civil and respectful. One last thing, please keep it "G" rated i.e., no foul language or inappropriate subjects. If you break the rules I will pull your post. So let's keep it clean and have some fun!

Concealed Carry Class

If you have ever wanted to get your concealed carry permit then here is a great opportunity.  I have a friend that is in the National Guard with me who is also a law enforcement officer that will be giving a course on the 5th of Aug.  The only thing that you will need to bring is two passport photo of yourself, your drivers license and he will do the fingerprinting and help you fill out the registration form.  I took this course 3 times before taking it from Tyler and his was the best and simplist.  I now have my CCP and knowing that I can carry concealed if I want to is a great feeling of security.  The course is $50 each and you need to prepay to hold your spot.  Send me an email and I will send you an invoice for the course.  If you bring 1 person then you get $10 off.  If you bring 4 people then your course is free.  We will meet at Paul Ream Wilderness Park on the corner of 500 North and Independence Rd. In Provo Ut. under the pavilion across the bridge on the East side of the park.  The class will start at 1800 and go until 2200 or we are finished.
