I met survival expert Peter Kummerfeldt several years ago at the Deschutes County Sportsman’s Expo. I was mesmerized by the common sense approach he had toward wilderness survival, and attended all the classes he taught that day. Later, I met him at his booth, and over the past few years, we’ve become friends.
Peter is my go-to guy for any questions about wilderness survival, and some of his work has appeared in SurvivalCommonSense.com.
Here’s Peter’s latest interview from a presentation he did recently in Bellingham, Washington.
