I’ve known Blake for over 20 years, and I can say he’s the most diligent and thorough teacher of wilderness skills and adventure preparation of anyone I’ve ever come across. I’d recommend North Winds Wilderness School to anyone looking to learn joyous and fun wilderness survival (and Thrival!), and to develop the deep relaxation and pleasure that comes from knowing you’ve got the tools and attitude it takes to get what you need in any situation or circumstances.
