It is very cool.  Their urban survival course is also very cool.  And again, probably MUCH more applicable to most of our everyday lives, than learning how to make snares from natural fiber cordage.  Those skills are cool too, but in my view, you need to be able to get yourself to the wilderness first. 

On Point is based in Jersey, but I know they do the Urban E&E course as far west as Arizona.

Unfortunately, that seems to be a prevailing trait amongst survival "gurus."   He doesn't take a holistic view to his courses.  His way is THE way.

That is kind of the read I have gotten on him. No humility at all. Personally, I MUCH prefer Ron Hood's approach of I don't know all and am always learning.

Yeah, I looked at his knife and a few of the reviews. I have no interest. I am all RAT Cutlery (now ESEE) all the time.

I am really surprised there is nothing in Texas, but oh well, guess I am going to be doing a lot of traveling.

They do do them all over. There is one coming up near me, in Dallas, in the next couple of months.

I think I am going to end up taking them all, LOL. It's all like crack to me and I find the stuff oddly relaxing. It's going to take me some time, but I will post my experiences, back to this thread if it does not get archived by then, as I go through each. OnPoint will probably be the first since it is the cheapest and closest. Just have to make sure I have the funds to go to Burning Man, Urban EE, and the fiance's Dental School Tuition all in the same year.

Wish Les Stroud was still teaching. Whether he is the best or not aside, he seems like he would just be a cool person to hang out with for a couple of days and that he would be a patient teacher.

I really want to, but can't this year. My summer budget is going towards Burning Man this year.

I will be at the Hoodlums Texas Spring Thing though  ;D

Sister Wolf:
