    Anybody from the forums here going to be attending the 4 day Global Bushcraft Symposium in Alberta, Canada this next week? If you see me, say hello.

    I was asked a few months ago to be a door prize sponsor, which I most readily accepted. Pending my triumphant entry through Canadian customs, I will be attending as a regular attendee so as to maximize my time.


    If you aren't familiar with it here is the description from their website:

    "An international gathering to promote bushcraft, survival, and traditional skills instruction through the open exchange of philosophies, pedagogical methods and dissemination of best practices within the industry."

    https://bushcraftsymposium.com/

    Keynote speakers:
    Mors Kochanski
    Lars Falt
    Tom Lutyans
    David Wescott
    David Holliday
    Paul Kirtley
    Lisa Fenton
    Cody Lundin
    Les Stroud
    Andre F. Bourbeau


    Other Presenters include:
    Kelly Harlton (Mors's protege)
    James Andal of Andaltool
    Joe Flowers
    Ernest Thompson Seton's granddaughter
    Ben Piersma (Ben's Backwoods)
    My buddy Sean Castillo (aka Mr. Black. aka @operationalextras on Instagram)
    and a whole bunch of awesome people who teach under Mors or whose name's I don't recognize

    had I known about this a month ago I would have booked off two weeks and opened the jar lid on my head and let them fill it with knowledge! I'm actually surprised @Se7eN isn't going there!

    Yep. I'd like to hear Cody Lundin speak. Even better would be to have a beer and chat with him.

    No Bear Grylls on the list?

    Cody didn't show. He couldn't cross the Canadian border because of some previous drug charges, lol
