Attention Outdoor Enthusiasts, Outdoor Workers
and Wilderness Adventure Travellers:

Discover what a seasoned expert with 30+ years of outdoor and wilderness experience will tell you about surviving the wilderness ...

So That You Don't Need To
Do First Aid and Use Survival Techniques on Your Next
Wilderness Adventure


Dear outdoor enthusiast, outdoor worker and wilderness adventure traveller:

It is a great day when you play or work in the outdoors and travel through wilderness and remote areas. And it is an even better day when you don't have to do first aid and use survival skills.

When you adopt a prevention mindset and follow a preparation approach you now have a blueprint to follow to avoid illness and injury.

However, if you become ill or injured the same blueprint will guide your decisions.

Knowing how to prevent illness and injury, and to prepare for a safer wilderness adventure are just as useful when you deal with an emergency situation, administer first aid, use basic survival skills and determine whether you evacuate to help or ask for help to come to you.

If you’re like 1000s of people I've touched over the years you're probably experiencing hesitation in how to deal with outdoor first aid and safety issues, first aid emergencies, how to survive in the wilderness, and how to pack a helpful outdoor first aid kit.

If you would like to know how to prepare for first aid emergencies, identify first aid kit content, learn about basic wilderness survival techniques, write your own wilderness survival guide and first aid guide and most importantly, follow an “anticipate and care” mindset before, during and after an outdoor trip so as to prevent doing first aid and using survival skills in the first place, then the eBook offered below will be the most important purchase you'll ever read.


*WARNING*

Do not purchase information on first aid and survival prevention and preparation techniques for the outdoors unless it meets the following 5 important criteria…

  • Includes prevention ideas before leaving your home
  • Includes preparation checklists for a safer trip
  • Includes a guide to make your own first aid-survival kit
  • Includes tips to organize you and others in doing first aid
  • Includes basic survival techniques to keep you safe

read on to find out!



My name is Steve Hobbs and for the last 30+ years I have been involved in playing and working in wilderness, remote and outdoor settings.

During that time I have worked in forestry camps fighting forest fires and led ten-day whitewater canoe trips for youth on northern lakes and rivers of Ontario, Canada.

I’ve been a whitewater rafting guide trip leader for 21 summers, sharing the majesty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains with people from all over the world.

I was a Wilderness Remote First Aid Instructor Trainer for the Canadian Red Cross (CRS) for 20+ years. I was the one who instructed instructor trainers to instruct instructors to instruct people like you. During this time, I edited the CRS wilderness remote first aid book used by instructors and participants.

In support of my rafting and first aid instruction I put to use the adult learning techniques I gathered through my continued university studies including obtaining my doctorate in adult education. And I have been a workplace trainer, teacher, coach and consultant involved in learning and development, leadership and management, and knowledge-skill validation.

More importantly, of the 1000s of people I took into the outdoors I brought everyone back safe and sound. Yes, there were some bumps and bruises, small cuts – but it means they were enjoying themselves.

And because of my experiences and the questions asked by my participants, I decided to create this website to share my practical ideas and those of my many friends whose expertise I have relied on over the years ... so you can develop your own bush survival guide that includes a first aid guide.

This website was developed to help you to NOT have to do first aid and use survival skills while enjoying the activity you are involved in no matter the season, no matter the place.

However, if you were to do first aid and use your survival skills then this site can help you as well.
