Boulder Outdoor Survival School

Today in the News:  I received this email from the Boulder Outdoor Survival School earlier this week.  I've never atended their program, but it seems like they have a great curriculum.  Please check out their website.  If you have attended one of their programs, shoot me an email review at

A Letter From The B.O.S.S.

Hi Mike,

My name’s Juliet Michael and I’m writing on behalf of BOSS, the Boulder Outdoor Survival School.  I’ve found much value in The Sharpened Axe and I thought you might be interested in this:

BOSS, the Boulder Outdoor Survival School, is the oldest and largest survival school in the world (website, based in southern Utah since 1968. Courses range from 3 to 28 days long and teach a wide range of wilderness skills. What sets BOSS apart from other programs, however, is their dedication to “primitive technologies” — teaching people how to enter the wilderness with a minimal amount of modern gear. Instead of backpacks, sleeping bags and tents, course participants sleep in wool blankets and ponchos. Fires are made by friction (rubbing sticks together) rather than with matches. The curriculum highlights the wisdom and skills of traditional cultures, inviting people to step back in time and re-connect with nature and themselves. It’s an incredible empowering program.

BOSS just launched a new website and they’ve asked me to help introduce people both to it and their school. As an incentive to get people to visit, they are offering a 10% tuition discount on all courses offered in 2011 (except the Slidrock Gathering) to anyone who registers using the code “BOSSadventure10”

Please feel free to share this discount with your audience. You can also read more about BOSS on their main website (, on Facebook ( and Twitter ( Feel free to ask me any questions, too, as I think their program is amazing and am hopeful others will, too.

Thanks for your interest and support, and thanks for helping spread the word about BOSS!

In adventure,
