Survival Training: Upcoming Central Rockies Lightfoot Survival Training


All –
Below is some information that I received about some upcoming survival training. I can tell you from the correspondence I have had with some of those involved they are very motivated and excited  to help others. They are also concerned about what the future holds and believe this training may very much help people survive in questionable time ahead.
