Seminar Update

Flint knapped projectile points by L. Woodrow Ross

L. Woodrow Ross announced that every registrant for the Primitive and Survival Skills Seminar on October 19 in Travelers Rest will leave with a bow drill, spindle, fire board and hand piece (socket), and the knowledge to start a fire with a bow drill. Fire starting with primitive equipment is a popular activity that Ross wants to share with attendees and make sure that they have the equipment when they leave to practice this ancient method of fire starting.
There will be something of interest for everyone and a lot of material will be covered. Due to the limitations of time, not all subjects can be covered in depth, but Ross has instructional books available on Amazon Kindle that complement the seminar by providing in-depth detail.
In addition, his Kindle novel, " The Night the Mountain Fell" is centered around the earthquake and landslide in western Montana near Yellowstone National Park, created Earthquake Lake and killed 28 people. It is a fictional account of a young couple and how the earthquake and landslide changed their lives forever.
Join him on Oct. 19 and enjoy a day of practicing and learning skills that will enhance your outdoor experiences and last a lifetime.

New book by L.Woodrow Ross and outdoor seminar details

Cover of new Kindle book by L. Woodrow Ross

We have been off-line for a period of time due to a very tight schedule. Several activities are on the horizon. We have the South Carolina Outdoor Press Association fall meeting coming up in early November, but prior to that will be in Montana for 10 days for some fall fly fishing and photography of landscape and animals.
Bow season opens in mid-September and that will be high on the agenda. The high water will present some problems on the river bottoms where it hunt with my longbow.
In the meantime, on Oct. 19, I will be presenting a Primitive and Survival Skills seminar in Travelers Rest. It will cover topics such as fire starting with bow drill, flint and steel and ferro-cerium rods. In addition we will demonstrate atlatls, Cherokee blow gun, cordage making from natural fibers, flint knapping and more.
General woodcraft and survival tips will be a vital part of the session and everyone will  have an opportunity to brush up on old skills and learn new ones.
For details and registration information, contact me a or call 864-238-1944.
Get outdoors and have more fun!
