This was a fantastic class with top shelf instruction from experienced yet humble and approachable guys. I made some great contacts and friendships while I was there. I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and I will attend more classes in the future. I highly recommend taking this advanced bushcraft class or any other of Randall's Adventure classes. Sign up and show up ready to learn. You won't be disappointed.

Did I enjoy this class? Yes. It was great to spend a couple days in the "woods" with like-minded people. James Gibson and Patrick Rollins knowledge was top notch. I have taken this class TWICE and there a couple things I did not like..

This is an "Advanced Bushcraft" class. That being said, this class should only consist of "bushcraft" skills. In my two visits we made a saw (3 hours of one day) consisting of nuts and bolts as well as a saw blade that can not be sourced from the bush and contained parts that were purchased from Home Depot/Lowes. We also made a sewing kit that consisted of PVC pipe which also can not be sourced from the bush and was purchased from Home Depot/Lowes. Waxed canvas bags consisted of thread/needles/Toilet bowl rings & Linseed oil that were also purchased from Home Depot/Lowes

The various ways of fire making were great, as was the shelter making and natural cordage lessons. I wish they had spent more time on traps/snares, spoon carving, weapons, flint knapping and various other things that would benefit a true "bushcrafter".

That being said.... The best thing gained from this class was the camaraderie and relations I built with various like minded people. I have taken this class twice, and would love to take it again as a nice, relaxing weekend getaway, but I will only do so if it actually becomes a true "bushcraft" class.

I thoroughly enjoyed the three day advanced bushcraft weekend. I have spent many years in the outdoors and enjoy hiking, camping, and just generally being outside. I'm a life-long student and I'm always looking for new ways to grow and sharpen my skills. There are no better instructors than Patrick and James, both of whom I consider masters in the art of bushcraft; they were friendly, patient, and eager to teach and I l came away with many new skills. Also, my fellow classmates were great and we all learned from each other as well. Overall, this was a great experience and I look forward to attending another session in the future.
