Doesn't Christopher offer a class ? He includes edible plants and fire making in the same class. Less expensive as well: $34 vs $ $89. He offers a great deal for the price. With my oldest in college now, I look at cost factor a great deal more than before. I'll take it when Christopher schedules it on a Saturday again.
Looked at both. Two good additional options. Just depends where you live and what you want kind of experience you want to have. Jim's camp out is in lady's backyard; Alan conducts his out of Irwindale Rec Area. They charge $10 a day for entry fee. What type of compass is that ?
Check Christopher's updated schedule. I told him TASC students were interested in orienteering and more primitive weapons classes.
