Just learned that Muster is sold out so I need a SUTA. I recently moved to Northern Idaho, around the CDA/Post Falls area, and I'm looking for recommendations on any good training in the area.

 

Firearms

Martial Arts

Medical training

Wilderness Survival

Anything

 

What's out there that is a must attend and are there any places I should absolutely stay away from?

 

Thanks in advance.

Ok. How about this. Is there anyone on the ITS crew that lives in Northern Idaho around the CDA/Post Falls area?

Heh, I think you're in the same boat as me man. All alone in your state.

Well that's just great.

 

Hey I just noticed something. ITS was started in Texas. You're in Oklahoma. I'm in Idaho. That's 3 of the 4 states with panhandles.

 

Sorry. I observe weird stuff like that.

I'm just across the border in Spokane. I've heard Center Target Sports in Post Falls has some good classes.

While I breathe I shall defend.

Hey all,

 

Liberty Lake.  I was looking for some like minded people to train with.  I workout with a group tuesday nights and we are looking to do some bushcraft/survival training.

Wouldn't mind doing some of that training myself. I'm not sure who to go to around here for it though. If you find anyone, let me know.

I'm in Spokane and would be up for an ITS Meet up.

 

Center Target says they have great classes but I was not that impressed. I took a $100/4 hour wilderness first aid course there about two years ago. It was long on anecdotes but short on content. More info-musement.

 

There is an outfit in the Coilvile area that I am told has a good reputation. Heard of them in M4carbineDOTnet. Sorry I cannot find my notes with any details...

Central-Southern Idaho here...so here's some ideas for you.

 

It would be worth your milage to do a firearms class down in Hagerman with Houston Shaw (www.shawshooting.com). He can instruct to any level well and comes from Mid-South pedigree.

For medical, look up NOLS/WMI and get your basic Wilderness First Aid/Responder (two types of classes). It's a great base and they host classes practically everywhere...

Leading into...

Backcountry/bushcrafting skills. Check with your local university and see if they have an outdoor education program. Ask if they ever have students instruct the skills, and then ask if you could show up so the student gets non-peer practice instructing. I attended a school like that, and we had to actually coordinate community-outreach classes on things like "winter hiking" and "backpacking." If nobody from the community showed up we actually got docked points because the instructor thought we didn't market the class well enough.

 

So...good luck and if all else fails check in with your local Ski Patrol or S&R and ask for some baseline knowledge so you can make their lives easier by not being an easy victim. 


The day you stop learning is the day you die.
