Outdoor adventure travel and experiences are becoming more popular among all ages living in urban environments striving to venture out and explore.  Idyllic landscapes of mountains, lakes, and deserts are displayed in many glossy magazines and television programs.  As we yearn to find ourselves in a beautiful, undisturbed place, we often don’t consider the risks of being alone or with an inexperienced group in such a location. 

Ever found yourself in a dangerous situation where you wish you had taken that shelter class, paid more attention to fire ignition sources or read the article on 100 things you can do with duct tape?

 We’ve all heard the stories of the person who had acquired survival skills and saved the day.

 Unfortunately, we see too often in the news stories of people becoming lost, injured, or just unprepared for the unforeseen curveball that Ma Nature can hand you in the wild.  Many of the stories have happy reunions but some do not.  There are many circumstances that can even take people's lives.  Every once in a while you hear of someone making it through easily with a level of comfort, skill, and confidence. You can be this person!

 Unleash your superhero and immerse yourself in this 48-hour experience where you will learn valuable no-nonsense wilderness life skills, which can keep you alive.  This immersive experience is what every adventure traveler needs to feel more confident and safe in the wild. 

 This Ro5 Trip is for those of you who want to push your comfort zone during an overnight experience that will prepare you for a survival situation. 

 Being ready for the unexpected is difficult, especially when it’s just that, unexpected.  While you can do your best to read, research, watch movies and videos about situations like this, nothing replaces hands-on training sessions. 

 This trip focuses on the number one priority – staying alive – as we examine and practice wilderness survival skills.

 Hope for the best, plan for the worst! Make it happen, get real, and come out the other side alive!
