Description
This event will be held on private property near Central Kentucky.   The exact location will be sent to all who sign up.  

This is not a class; this is an event. It is an opportunity for you to show off your creativity, ingenuity, and ability to spend $25 on survival gear at your favorite Dollar General store.  

What is going on?  Spend one night in the outdoors using only what you can buy for $25 at ONE Dollar General Store on the way to the event.  We will start at 7pm on August 9 and go until August 10.  

How do I prove it is my $25?  You must bring your goods AND receipt with you to the event in a yellow Dollar General bag.  The receipt must be from one Dollar General store and be dated August 9, 2024.  Someone will check off all items in your bag to verify it matches your receipt.  Nothing other than your receipt items and ONE Dollar General bag to carry it in, will be allowed for testing.  

Is anything strange or wonderful going to happen? Yes, it is a Nature Reliance School event, isn't it?

Strange?  Purchase and plan well, you will have a chance to barter for goods with other participants.  Don't cheat ahead of time, this isn't Dual Survival or Survivor.

Wonderful? Your $10.00 admission fee will be put into a pot, whoever is judged to have done the best job gets the pot.  There will be a first, second and third prize giveaway of the pot.  Probably some other free stuff from sponsors.  We are cool like that.  

More wonderful?  You will receive points for spending less than $25.  Yes, we are devious like this all the time.  

Who is doing the judging?  NRS Cadre will be judging and participating, although they cannot win.  An objective set of testing criteria will be announced at the beginning of the event.  NRS instructor Cadre member Davy Black has developed an incredible test matrix that covers the NRS way of doing things.  If you want some insight into how we do things, then take this FREE online course on our website.  

What happens afterwards?  We will have a feast celebrating being in the woods with good people and having fun.  Bring something to share to eat.  NRS Director Craig Caudill will secure the food, so most of it will be available when you come out of the woods.  :)
