On April 30, 2010 Tim and Ron presented a “Wilderness Survival Skills” workshop to approximately 50 adult leaders enrolled in the Northeast Illinois Council, Boy Scouts of America High Adventure Resource Course.  The program called “2010 Powder Horn”  was held at Illinois Beach State Park in northern Illinois, and the participants went home with a number of helpful hints and two free items for a recommended 6-item survival kit.  Instructors and students finished the afternoon program sharing a delicious pig roast.

After teaching the Scout leaders the benefits of reconnectiong with the Natural World, Ron & Tim “connected” in a more realistic way when a whitetail deer broadsided Ron’s Prius on the drive home; damage to the Prius–about $2,100; damage to the deer–“lifeless”.
