Survival Training Overnight on Poll's Plateau Trail
May 3-4

Near Beckley, WV – one overnight on trail (mostly easy with some moderate).  Optional days of rock climbing on Friday and Monday.  Trip leaves Columbus on Saturday morning and returns Sunday evening.  Columbus to trail head is about 230 miles (4 hours and 15 minutes)
We will hike Poll’s Plateau Trail (no more than 6 miles/day) and camp in the woods by an old farmstead. The rest of Saturday evening and Sunday morning we will work on survival skills like starting a fire using your shoestring, collecting edibles, safe knife skills, building a shelter etc.  
You will not have to eat bugs or sleep covered in leaves but you will get the chance!
If you choose to join us on Friday and Monday we will do some rock climbing in the New River Gorge area (Fayetteville WV).  Climbing equipment and training available upon request.

PRegistration is now closed, the trip is full.  But email Chris to get on a waiting list in case he has a cancellation.
