5C’s of Survival recap

img_5954

5 adventurous ladies showed up Wednesday night to learn about the 5 most essential things you can carry for survival.  The smaller group size made it easy to share some of our own stories and Sherri was super patient answering all our questions. She even shared some off-topic tips (did you know you can dehydrate chili?!).

For each one of the 5Cs, Sherri demonstrated the proper gear. Not only did we get to try the gear first hand, but Sherri took time to explain which choices are good, which choices are better, and why. We even learned a few diy tricks, like how to make your own kindling!

There was a lot of information to take in but a few important tips included:

-make sure it’s multipurpose and light

-dress appropriately/sustain climate

-waterproof matches are not always the answer

-You can have all the tools, but they won’t do any good if you don’t know how to use them!!

Now that we have the confidence to get the gear, we’re ready to tackle another class! Next one on the list? Fire building! Thank you to Wilderness, Water and Woods Trading Corp. for making this event possible!!
