Survival, the truth is some live and some die. Countless how-to books have been written about the subject and countless more will be written. We see or hear about the miracles of survival from the wilderness to suburbia. Then we see or hear of those if they could of been found the day before would still be alive. Then you hear of those who have survived, like over 80 in the Alaska back country after a plane crash in one of the rivers there.
Well here is such a person that has dedicated most of his life in such endeavors to bring awareness in how to survive no matter where you are. His name is Gene Fear I have taken his classes and worked with him and even went with him in the dead of winter to teach winter survival.
