Emergency Prep & Outdoor Survival

Preparing for the Worst - Why We Do It

With cell phones, Apps and GPS technology, there’s no need to learn the art of survival, right? WRONG.

Here’s why: Imagine you’re hitting some awesome trails with a buddy in the backcountry and your friend has a terrible accident. He’s rolled his machine on a rocky slope and both of his legs have been broken. After providing first aid to your buddy right away (which takes skill and don’t worry, we’ll teach you that), you’ll reach for your phone to call for help only to discover that:

  1. Your cell battery is drained.
  2. You have no cell service in the backcountry.
  3. Your phone got wet and no longer works.
  4. Your buddy’s phone is dead too.

So, what happens now? Our survival training will keep you alive in an outdoor emergency and that Trip Plan you left with reliable cousin Dave will get you rescued.

Imagine spending two days out in the cold with no food  and clue where you are. Now imagine how great it would feel to see the lights of a rescue plane. You’ll never regret taking a few minutes to write down your trip details.

RIDER SAFETY TIP: THINK OF HOME

We owe it to our families to prepare for emergencies and dangerous situations. Would you want your mom, your little brother or your best friend to find out that you haven’t returned home from an ATV trip and nobody knows where you are? Do you wanna be the cause of all that worry? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
