ANCIENT STRATEGIES, MODERN CONNECTIONS

The Rule of Five are the five foundational skills for wilderness living and survival.
The Rule of Five helps those who seek an adventure in the outdoors and anyone wanting to find a deeper connection to the way our ancestors lived before modern conveniences were available. These basic foundational wilderness skills and the way we teach them separate us from our competition by connecting the dots between our modern lifestyles and the knowledge our ancestors used to survive in the wild.
