What You’ll Do
Having the tools you’ll need in an emergency is great—but not needing them to begin with is even better. In his three-hour workshop, Wilderness Survival Instructor Mark Suter shrugs off matches and imparts students with the power to build a campfire using only what can be found in nature: just a few sticks and tinder.
Suter will cover the basics of the hand-drill method, including the best woods to use and the best techniques to get flames leaping.
Learn to Make the Right Fire
In addition to the basics, Suter will cover terrain- and landscape-specific variations, as well as tinder and structural options.

Wilderness Survival Instructor
Since childhood, Mark Suter has often found himself in the great outdoors—but fortunately that’s where he’s most comfortable. For more than two decades he’s studied primitive wilderness living with the Lipan Apache tribe of south Texas, bow making with expert Jim Hamm, and survivalist techniques while serving in the US Army. But Mark also has a degree in education from Texas A&M University, and that comes in handy when he’s teaching others about wilderness survival or writing books such as his self-published Edible Wild Plants of Texas (Non-woody Species).
