The cost of the class is $75 which includes the property access fee.
Maximum class size is 24. If you have a team of 4 that you wish to stay together, Email me at Wes.Meyer@RescueTI with your name and the names of the other members so I can put you together. As of 7/12/2021 I already have tentative confirmation of two teams of 4 each (TTL of 8 spots already taken).
This Level 1 course is 24 hours long. That is 24 hours straight through. It starts at 0900 on Saturday and goes through 0900 on Sunday. It is a team challenge and learning course. Teams will be made as even as possible. No more than 4 per team.
You are allowed to eat before the class and then again a sack lunch from 1200-1230. After that, you are allowed no more food till after 0900 on day 2 (unless medically required). Any medications, inhalers, episode pen or other necessary medical treatments will be carried by an instructor.
There is absolutely no smoking, vaping or dipping allowed during the 24 hours.
The only things you are allowed are
- the clothes and shoes you are wearing at the start of the class. Glasses and/or contacts are allowed for vision correction. NO SUNGLASSES.
- Two 20 oz. plastic water bottles with WATER only in them.
- caps or hats are allowed but must we worn and cannot have any other items on them.
ANYTHING else on your person at the beginning of the class is grounds to forfeit your entire team.
We will provide a shovel and toilet paper for on the trail.
You will be required to hike through fields, forest, possible water and then build a shelter and remain in the shelter or next to it for the night, then get up, break camp and then complete several challenges to the finish line. Oh and you will be competing against the other teams for survival gear that may be useful during the course.
