My Survival School Past

I get asked all the time what Survival / Outdoor School I was a partner and chief instructor in. My old partner (Marty) has sadly passed away. He was a Vietnam Veteran and power house of knowledge. I owe him much for the opportunity he gave me to help educate others in the ways of the woods. This business put me on the road to self-reliance and deliberate living. Thank You Marty.

The first real video production I ever completed outside of college was with Marty. A Wild Plant Nature Walk. When we dissolved the partnership Marty was the one that pointed me to the job of working with at risk youth for NYS.

My School (Partnership) in Northern, NY State

Homesteading: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly – Season 1, Episode 1

John Elden Gibbons and Teresa S. Landry introduce themselves and talk about their experiences of living deliberately, creating a freedom lifestyle, building a homestead, and living off-grid. This is about the good, the bad, and the ugly that goes along with independent living, and a journey that is filled with ups and downs. Throughout this podcast – and future episodes – John and Teresa discuss the aspects of “back to the earth” living that they want to maintain as they move forward and the aspects they want to move beyond and never have to deal with again.  This is about deliberately building the ideal life and acknowledging that some overly-romanticized notions of the simple life are not feasible in modern society. Also discussed will be the challenges of earning a living while living “simple,” and the plain truth that living  simple is very time-consuming.

Bug Out or Dig In: EP3 – SN1

Rockbottom Survival Skills: podcast Ep 3 
In this episode John Elden Gibbons and Teresa S. Landry talk about Bug out vs Dig in. When does a home stop being a place of relative safety, and what can you do to prepare your space for living during outages and loss of services? Surviving isn’t always about trekking into the woods alone, sometimes you have to take care of a family with shelter stripped of modern conveniences. What can you do?
