Survival Schools and Courses

As a long time Wilderness person... I have self taught me and my friends and family things I've learned through experience.
I recently went through a course, and I'm not saying I didn't learn anything, but I did realize that I had more experience outdoors than my instructors did.
So, my tip is , .. if you are going to take a course or do a survival trip... make sure you ask or check to see if your teachers and Guides are experienced. Book knowledge and Wiki knowledge doesn't mean squat out in the real deal.
Nothing beats years and years of experience.
Any goon can claim to be a "survival expert".
It's another matter to those who have lived it, and have tried and tested themselves year after year.
Just be cautious. Don't spend a wad of money on frauds and inexperienced guides.
Prepare to be a wilderness survivor.
