What would you do if you were lost in the woods?
Would you know how to start a fire? Make shelter? Signal for help?
The Mountain Shepherd School in Catawba, Virginia has taught thousands of students, from scout groups to special forces, these skills. Reggie Bennett, founder and lead instructor, is one of the leaders in the field (pun intended), bringing years of experience to bear with each class. Options range from the basics in "Survival 101" to more in-depth knowledge in the popular "Humble Thunder" to the always interesting "Hidden Pursuits".

Favorite thing that I learned: Pitch wood, or wood found from pine trees that died suddenly, can be used to start a fire, even when it's totally wet.
