Well, my name is not "Dex"
and I'm quite a ways from Florida.
But I did once get a favorable report on this Primitive Skills training schoo
l that should be in your neck of the Everglades, if I'm not mistaken.
They have a course curriculum that I would certainly be interested in if I was nearby. Looks to be very affordable. And it appears they even allow for family-group training which may appeal to you and yours.
If you go with them, please let me know how it works out for you.
BTW, thanks for the question, Jim. I'm in the process of figuring out how this new GATE survival forum works and I look forward to serving as a resource for serious preparedness.
