7-DAY ADVANCED ADVENTURE

This is an advanced Rule of Five adventure that builds off the Five-Day adventure and is for those who wish to experience the Rule of Five in a different light. After a brief review of the foundational skills we quickly move onto an experience that deepens your knowledge of the Rule of Five. We take the training up a notch and blur the timelines of history with skills.

On this adventure you experience the best of the modern and primitive worlds, while fully immersing yourself in the Rule of Five experience. In addition to presentations of Core Concepts you create a base camp, craft your own tools, expertly build a fire, learn to disinfect water and much more. Your knowledge is also tested with an intense outdoor wilderness survival challenge.

This is not included in any other Rule of Five adventure.

The significance of this 7-day trip is a blending of modern and ancestral skills experienced during an overnight survival challenge with Matt and his team supporting and guiding you during your survival excursion.

This is a Ro5 all-inclusive adventure with lodging, transportation to and from the Rule of Five Base, chef-catered meals, all training supplies, the Ro5 survival kit, and more.

The custom Rule of Five Wilderness Kit: It’s not your typical wilderness survival kit. All of the Ro5 components have been time tested, are found worldwide and are valued in all cultures.

A detailed gear list is provided after registration is complete.
