Live from the woods/trap line

This week I will be coming to you live from the woods/trap line (I hope technology doesn’t fail me) and we will be talking about outdoor skills training. There are hundreds of places across the country that teach in-person self reliance skills courses and without having been to a majority of then. I’m going to limit myself to a few free coorespondence type courses online that are great places to get your feet wet when learning wilderness self-reliance skills. I will devote the majority of my time talking about the Bushcraft USA Bush Class Beginner, intermediate and Advanced courses.

Over the last year or so I have utilized these courses to hone, develop and practice my wilderness self-reliance skills for free on my own time and at my own pace. While others may need to jump into the deep end and take a class to start (there are plenty of great courses and instructors out there) this method is not only much cheaper for many but also more practical as they can easily into developing skills. Granted spending countless nights in the woods is not for everyone so this course format also allows you to find out if this lifestyle is for you before investing hundreds of dollars in gear that you would need at the onset of a traditional course. To complete these courses you need little more than the materials you can find around your home with the lone exception being a good knife (an old hickory butcher knife will get you through the class).

I will walk through the Basic Bush Class Requiements (See my article on the class here, Intermediate Bush Class Requiements (See my article on the class here, the advanced bush class and all of the electives you must complete for certification. I will then cover the positive and negative aspects of this type of course and answer any questions you might have concerning the courses.
Hope to hear from you during the show!

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!
Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.

Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.
