BigPig Outdoors and Team BUSAR have combined forces with the REI, our nation's top outdoor retailer, to smash through the myths and misconceptions of survival and prepare you for your next adventure. 


When the going gets tough, do you have what it takes to survive a wilderness emergency?  Join us as we break down the essence of the "Reality of Survival."  Participants will leave having an understanding of the reality of wilderness emergencies, how to avoid them, and how to prepare.  We will cover the mindset, skills and gear needed for superior in a wilderness emergency.  Don't rely on reality television shows for your wilderness emergency knowledge.  Hear first hand what it takes to survive!


With first aid, fire, shelter, and gear demos, participants will leave with not only skills, but also a lightweight shelter and firestarting option. 


A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Team BUSAR, an all-hazards Search & Rescue Team operating in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
