Boulder Outdoor Survival School Offering 10% Off Courses For 2011Posted on the 15 March 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
I received a nice note yesterday from the folks at the Boulder Outdoor Survival School (BOSS). The company just launched a new website, and to celebrate they're offering 10% off all course throughout 2011. To take advantage of the discount, simply use the promo code “BOSSadventure10” when registering for the courses of your choice.
BOSS has been around since 1968 and is one of the largest and oldest survival schools in the world. Located in Utah, the company specializes in instructing their students on how to survive in the wild without modern technology and gear. In fact, BOSS focuses on getting their students back to the basics, and reconnecting them with nature, through the use of more "primitive" methods. They even stress the value of learning from traditional cultures who found natural and creative ways to exist in the wilderness for centuries.
The courses that are offered at the school range in length from 3 to 28 days depending on what you would like to learn. They offer courses on how to navigate in various environments, how to live off the land, and how to survive for 72 hours in a crisis. They also have full blown field course that will push you to the limits, but teach you how to not just survive, but thrive in the wilderness. These courses are for the explorer who really needs to know how to live in the backcountry.
If you've been considering taking a survival course, or simply want to pick up some new skills, this is a great opportunity to do so at a reduced cost. 10% off all courses for the year is a great bargain and you'll probably learn some skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life. Take advantage of this opportunity while you can.
