It all started when an Adirondack Wilderness Guide and Outdoor Training Specialist decided that he wanted to Introduce 100,000 people to Camping and Bushcraft skills and help them to be comfortable and Safe in the Out of Doors.

WHY This set of Activities?

Over the years, I have worn many different hats. I worked with Young People and Adults from all walks of life. You see, I have worked with groups made up of Youth and Adults from Cities and from the Rural areas. I have worked with those who were probably like your neighbors. Some of them had difficulty in Hearing, Seeing and Learning. Some of these were quick at learning skills and later became leaders in their own right. Some were afraid of the outdoors when they started. They were afraid they did not know enough, would fail or worse.

I have worked with Beginning Campers and Expert outdoor people from all over the World: people from my neighborhood and people from as far away as Thailand. These people would venture into the Adirondacks for days or weeks at a time. The beginning campers and the expert alike always wanted to learn a new skill or, better yet, learn a new way to bring a skill back home to teach others. With this idea in mind, and the fact that I love to make things fun, I developed these small Activity kits not only to help others learn new skills, but to give them the tools to teach and share those skills.

The Skills I wanted to pass on are:

  • Basic and Advanced Bushcraft / Camping
  • Navigation
  • Conserving our planet and Wilderness Areas
  • Outdoor Sports
  • Self-reliance in the out of doors
  • Nature Study
  • and Critical Thinking (Math, Science, Technology Application and Good Ol’ Ingenuity )

You may be Asking, “Who is this Big Guy, who keeps asking me to look at his Products:

So, Please let me Introduce myself:

My name is John Gibbons; I am a Licensed NY State Guide.

Besides being a licensed guide, I am the grandson of Euell Gibbons, famed wild food expert and father of the Wildcrafting movement.
I started learning survival at the early age of eight by participating in a three-day survival trip with my grandfather as my mentor. My father was active with the U.S. Air Force and I moved every two years to places such as California, The Philippines, Washington, Nevada, Idaho and northern New York.
My mother and I stayed with my grandmother in New York while my father served in Vietnam and Thailand. I spent a lot of time in the woods where I studied and practiced the teachings of Larry Dean Olsen, Baden Powell, Seton, Hillcourt, Nessmuk, my grandfather Euell and many others.
At age 16, I got to hike the Northville – Lake Placid trail, hiking one week alone.

Later, I would work for camps in the Adirondacks during the summers while attending school at SUNY Plattsburgh. My Other grandfather, Jim, had been a Lumber Jack from the Keene Valley area.
With this kind of family, it’s no wonder I just had to do something in the Out of doors.
Later, after active and reserve duty in the Navy, I worked with At Risk Youth for NYS and Spent approximately 145 Days a year in the Woods or on the trails and water, teaching life skills through interaction with nature. In my years of experience, I have logged over 6000 miles by foot and on the water in mountains, woodlands, deserts, swamps, tropical shores, and one trek onto a glacier in Alaska.

I have made it my mission to Introduce 100,000 people to the skills of Camping and Bushcraft.
I cannot do this without your help.
