Should a Hurricane Katrina or another 9/11 arrive at your doorstep, what would you grab as you fled the scene? Most individuals don’t think about these scenarios, because they just seem so unrealistic and unappealing. However, plenty privately wonder: What would I do in the face of disaster?

Whether it’s an extreme vacation gone wrong, a terrorist attack, or even just a nasty tornado, Indianapolis-based survival specialist Creek Stewart says that disaster preparation is one of the most immediate items to check off our list right now. Since the line between order and chaos is very thin, a 72-hour survival kit can ensure you come out on the right side.

And Creek is going to show you how! On Saturday, June 16, 2012, he is hosting a special open house at his survival training ranch, Willow Haven Outdoor, in Anderson, Indiana. He’ll demonstrate survival skills, including:

  • How to build a “Bug Out Bag” (each item you would need to survive in the wild for three days)
  • Wild edible plant cooking demonstrations (inspired by Willow Haven’s Hunger Games Survival Skills course)
  • Creating fire with a Bow Drill (fire by rubbing two sticks together)
  • Remote water survival
  • Survival signal mirror demonstration

Event info:
Saturday, June 16, 2012
10 am to 2 pm
Willow Haven Outdoor
2867 N County Road 200 East
Anderson, Indiana

Creek is also the author of Build the Perfect Bug-Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit, in which he walks readers through every step of survival preparation. From water to food, first aid to pet survival, instructions and photographs show you how to create a portable bag that can save your life.

He was contracted to write the book after his article on the popular blog The Art of Manliness generated more than 6,000 Facebook shares and hundreds of enthusiastic comments. His expertise speaks to three different skill levels: the expert outdoorsman, those of average survival skills and knowledge, and even those who have very little confidence in their outdoor survival skills. Each will walk away from this event knowing exactly how to prepare themselves and their families for a crisis, with the tools and knowledge they need to make it on their own.
