“We need the tonic of wildness. We can never get enough of nature.” - Henry David Thoreau

As a life long child of the land, Robert was raised in the woods. His early days of love for the out-of-doors were formed by his father who was gifted in the wild. Later, Robert enlisted in the US Army, where he served as a Combat Medic in Alaska until his tour of duty was complete. As a father, he taught wilderness skills in his children’s youth group, which lasted several decades and lead to becoming a state level instructor and coordinator.

Robert has traveled throughout Michigan providing training to groups desiring to learn preparations and wilderness skills. He also spent three weeks deep in the jungle of Guyana teaching survival skills and wilderness medicine to a group of missionary bush pilots who served multiple countries in South America.
