Welcome Reuben to our Trail Ambassador Family

Please welcome Reuben to our Trail Ambassador family.  He is a survival instructor and minimalist in the purest sense.

Bio: Writer, photographer, adventurer, and martial arts trainer (Muay Thai), Reuben has spent 30 years hiking and backpacking through the wildernesses of California, Nevada, and Arizona: often with an air of extreme discipline towards his super Ultralight gear. He has traveled abroad in extreme environments, from the cold climate of Alaska and New Zealand to the desert heat of Egypt. He continues studying primitive techniques in survival and the construction and uses of knives and edged tools from places such as the South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and numerous countries in Asia. Reuben has published many articles on knife use, Bushcraft, shelters, and remains a lifetime student of survival.  Read more here…

    If you’re interested in primitive skills and live in California you might be interested in Buckeye (http://buckeyegathering.net/) which is a primitive skills gathering in California. I haven’t been to it yet, but if it’s anything like WinterCount in Arizona it should be great. Lots of experimental archeologists and people who just like to live primitively teaching what they’ve learned. I’ve learned shoe making, brain tanning, large animal slaughtering/butchering. There’s also pottery and blacksmithing from totally raw materials. Pretty cool gathering if it’s what you’re into.
