“EXPERIENCE ALONE” with Nicole & Jose

Join Jose Amoedo and Nicole Apelian from the Alone Show on History Channel for a 5-Day Wilderness Living Skills Experience!

Want to experience what it takes to be Alone in the woods for the long-term? Join Nicole and Jose from the hit TV show Alone for this 5-day workshop and learn the skills we used to survive and thrive alone for 2 months on Vancouver Island. You will have the opportunity to ask us your questions about how we thrived using wilderness living skills, all while doing hands-on skills-based projects.

This workshop takes place in the Oregon coastal range at Nicole’s home and land near Nehalem, Oregon – Soapstone Woodland Retreat. Only 15 minutes from the beach, my property has a river that runs through it and offers a similar setting to Vancouver Island on 22 acres of private land.

Dates: September 2nd-6th, 2016
Cost: $1,295.00/per person • All food included
Accommodations: Camping with bathrooms available for showers, etc.
Prerequisites: None

Beyond the basics of survival, you will also learn:

  • Foraging: we will forage for food as well as medicine in the woods and at the beach
  • Trapping: deadfall and snares
  • Campfire Cooking
  • Medicine-making: take home your own handcrafted salves
  • Fire: We will make fire using flint and steel, ferro rod and the bowdrill
  • Shelter: Build your own shelter (and try it out solo for a night!) using different techniques like an A-frame debris hut and a lean-to shelter. Learn how to stay warm in an emergency situation and how to avoid hypothermia.
  • Cordage: make rope from natural materials
  • Carving: Try your hand at making your own burn bowl and fireblower too!
  • Campfire Chats: about how we thrived on Vancouver Island and our mindset behind wilderness living

Wilderness Living skills differ from survival skills in that the first is a knowledge-based way of living in ongoing harmony with the natural world.

Survival Living is inherently an acute, short-term perspective; it is a strategy best applied for when you get lost or hurt and need to find a way to survive through difficulty until you can get rescued.

Wilderness living takes practice— it is how we as humans have lived and thrived for eons in a sustainable way, the way that many indigenous cultures still live today. It is a natural way of living as a part of nature. If you want to learn how to get back to your roots of connection, this workshop is the place to start.
