So we went with a new very jaws were chamber of commerce decide to launch this thing and and ever since we we launched it it's it's taken off there's been other organizations that popped up to do the same same thing.

We bring out individuals like north border survival. And and teach them some survival skills about foraging.

Unified front in help these military families that are. Dan DiMarco has a place oversold Fremont goers there at their headquarters over in Melrose kept freedom. And so the majority of the retreats that we do. Four. Wounded warriors is over there again it's about hunting fishing waters survival. He also has equine therapy to offer and so. He has a lake in the back and I I think I'm one of the only who who only individuals who actually swim across the lake but it is this a mobile lake in their suspicion there and it's. Yeah decision and it might be other things. Very sown across that good for you aren't as crazy though way. That's that's a nice set up he has out there he's got a house in they'll do retreats and L but I think they can housing eight people. And held in the do that on the weekends and stuff like dad in.

Out he's he's yet to really it's mostly Dan and he gets a little bit of help here in their from smother people but today inning also to wrestled on the job and do all that so yeah I feel formed by the but I Amanda here that I set and I don't have and so did and you only. Except tell me what else it ends at ten candy is involved with. Well the our signature event of the year is soldier freed him up a spews mean is this survival rates for heroes and that is. A pretty epic race. Its say yet to gay overnight. Extreme adventure race. It starts at the blue springs we created a partnership of blue springs park Tim Davis and her crew. And does she hosts is us every year is the third year that we get we've gone into this. And though did the the big competitors have three categories register for expert novice or recreation. We've learned a lot since our inaugural event in 2015. Yeah one that they differed with things is to break these categories down into. What is more manageable for the individual that's competing. And so the the folks who want to to to give something back they were they want a taste what embrace the suck is all about. They can come into the preparation category have a little fun and learn a little bit while guides out their forum. For the novice you yeah yeah yeah it's it's it's that the level. It's manageable it's doable. And dead in the experts experts are going to anywhere from. Total stream were actually bringing in live chickens and live rabbits this year forum to. To that behind. Or dispatched and to clean and cook something and that is. You'll have to do this in a sure about the situation this is in a mud run this is not what you're. Three hour a races week in war your stuff this is that this is if you think you can handle it. Bring it but T you don't have a category for lake city slicker likes to shop but Paulo category that I would get into that would definitely be the recreational category you've come out there with a rusty Glock finished yeah that the judge so the wreck category you can do is much towards little if you want to you can do have to raise you can come out there and just. Paid at pita pita play. So you've got your you're gonna canoe and kayak part of and I guess right but it overall you're gonna cover fifty miles is that right that is correct so we go we set up camp at place folk can't great support Whitewater nasseria. It's not quite halfway mark and they do the commander's ball skills test there. The next morning is about 0500 we take off the chem lights. And we we we connect with the Swanee river and we go down too harsh brings Hart springs is another one of our partners. And they put itself in the a and allow us to come set up camp there. But you know you're close to Jane you just can't about a Jay's house if you wanted to do BJ would do a remote force out there now. A ten acres. Used to be like a mass house though you never know what I'm. If it if anyway I sold it I mean this this is. For the hardcore if you wanted to Elway but if you don't. Wanna do it that way there's no pressure on folks. If they just wanna really go out and have some some of their kids right. That is absolutely correct we have wind caught a quadriplegic that's coming there on north collided that's going to be competing group tried to build a team around him to sport. A marker one flats is bring an end that they're rush Alice vote that we will cover for support forum. And did that's cap capping cal skipper he's gonna become an end to help with that. There were looking at trying to build up a land based team because they're actually want to compete in the expert category which is ten. As Smith points they had these competent. They're going to be pulling him and us led around the swamp is going to be a lot more challenge in there and then that I think they can imagine. It that we need we just had Scott Jones come along with this he is Syria army veteran he's bringing in his thirteen year old son which is working towards eagle scout. And a is its canine companions that they'll be doing a year the novice category they're coming in on a Georgia. How much of this how many skills can you acquire why you're actually trying to participate in this is there a way to kind of learn as you go. Yeah absolutely I think we were a lot of us get the that the academic portion while watching YouTube ore to shore Bobble. Races. And on and on TV. But there's a lot that to be said about the tactile learning technique in that it's getting out there and actually do own a trial by error. I know a lot of folks they learn better by by by messing up you know last year we had a young lady. They come out there in Indy and the butters she she was showing folks how to drink water out of line fishy chop the line up and you're drinking water and you know some folks haven't trouble started a fire so we we assisted down menus in the market magnesium stick we had to bow and drill out there and you don't know what you try. That's why bring a liner everywhere I go absolutely yeah I know it's close things you do you have watched some of those shows and you say. You know I want clean water and I want fire and if you can get those two things I think you know your chances of survival are pretty good but without those two things. It diminishes rather quickly didn't. Yeah one of the major threats and it's about the situation is mortal. In what fire does is it helps ease that that boredom you know. One of the things that we use our forests of therapeutic measures like on fire therapy. And when we can work for veterans to it opens you won't be kind of that allowed you drop your wall of fire is is more than just. Used as a measurement but for rehabilitation. And there's also kind of a very Christian component to a fire as well isn't there like a fire in terms of cleansing and things like that yes. It I guess I never really thought about the connection I mean everybody's comfortable around a camp for everybody enjoys it and in so there's more to it in. In now what what you see what's on the surface I guess absolutely. I'm which are doing is fantastic and Matthew we hope people continue to support in enjoy. What you're doing this big deal is march 4 and fifth it's the ultimate adventure challenge so like defect he got. Different categories so really anybody wants to participate can. And you don't have to make necessarily a race out of it per say that's correct just involving yourself in and saying hey yeah you know I did decide accomplish this.
