CANCELED - 2018 Ultimate Survival Challenge - Level 1

2018 Ultimate Survival Challenge Training is CANCELED - Here's Why...

Dear Friends, For various personal reasons I am canceling many business events and obligations for 2018. This means I have canceled our popular July survival training for 2018. The BIG reason is the cumulative effects of workaholism on my part. Working too hard, too long on too many things. Carin (my wife) has borne the brunt of it’s effects and recently it has also begun to effect me as well. So, I am stepping back to refocus on the main / most important things in my life for the remainder of 2018. To do this I am putting several Ultimate Survival Tips things on autopilot and focusing on family, friends and fewer (but arguably more important) projects including:
  • A VERY unique SURVIVAL GUIDE and survival tool "tool kit" that will blow your mind.
  • And the launch the Ultimate Survival Academy (more below)...
You see... before I started the Ultimate Survival Challenge - Level 1 "LIVE" Training - I wrote a survival manual containing approximately 80 hours of the most essential survival knowledge and practical skills training I know. Out of which we have used and have tweaked up only about 35 hours in our Level 1 Course (that spans 4 days). My goal was to test and perfect this course in a "live" context so that - once proven - we could get it out to hundreds / even thousands who would not be able to afford or make the journey to our "live" training. Now, in 2018 this course is ready. Pruned, tested and proven effective with REAL students, THIS course will SOON be available to anyone, anywhere (including families, small groups - and the most busy among us) who wants to be better prepared but can't afford the money or time to make it to our "live" training. Folks that want to gain the skills and knowledge to make it through a crisis, emergency or survival situation. In addition to these items TWO items - I may (wink, wink) have a few more surprises for our MSK-1 fans and those that love cool, innovative new gear. If you want me to keep you up-to-date on The Ultimate Survival Academy or My Gear Innovations - Use the Form Above to Sign Up... Thanks for your encouragement and support my friend! ~David

Where Is It?

This training is hosted in the Beautiful Endless Mountains of Wellsboro Pennsylvania. Wellsboro is a rural town and is a hub of Wilderness Tourism and Outdoor Sports in the Northeastern USA. Our training location is perfectly situated within a 4 to 5 hour drive of major metropolitan hubs like: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Rochester, Cleveland, Toronto, and New York City. Many of our students leave in the morning and make the drive to Wellsboro prior to our 1:00 PM start time. And when the training is finished, most who attend can make it home before dark.
