Wilderness & Survival Skills Class @ AdventureOut

AdventureOut is offering survival classes in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Pascal and I got to enjoy the class today. Mark and Jack are great instructors and both of us had a lot of fun.

Pascal tests our (incomplete) debris hut.
Making fire.  This is really hard work for a nine year-old.
First time I actually made fire with a bow drill. 

Yay, I have a tiny coal. Let it smolder ...
... and pack into a nest of yute twine.
Smoke ...
... and fire. Ouch! This is hot!
... and quickly throw it into the fire ring.
