Learn from the survivalist brothers, the Baranskis, about how to set up a short-term (3 day or less) and a long-term campsite. This will include cooking, shelter, and all the things you need to know to survive the wild.

Brothers Ed and Fran Baranski have been wandering into the wilderness for years, building their own canoes, doing some more than rigorous camping, and just learning how to survive in nature by their own skill. Now, they want to teach you some of the skills they’ve learned.
