Bay Area Expeditions’s experienced outdoorsmen, with backgrounds ranging from U.S. military service to botany education, lead students on instructional excursions to bolster wilderness-survival skills. Participants hoist their instructor-provided materials and set out with fellow explorers for a five-hour trek through less-than-hospitable landscapes within Marin County. As they walk along, outdoors enthusiasts practice backpacking techniques and hiking safety that both increase pack comfort and reduce their dependency on rolling luggage with all-terrain wheels.
The class’ basic curriculum enables novice hikers to acclimate themselves to the rigors of conquering nature trails, and lessons in crisis prevention and management equip hikers, bikers, and outdoorsmen of all skill levels to handle unexpected challenges. Hands-on training in water-purification methods and signaling arms participants with the know-how to select their own survival gear and assign priority between packing a water bottle or three Predator DVDs.
