23 – 30 September, 2003, six men and two women took the advanced survival course “Over-leven” in the woods in West-Yorkshire in England. Extra Survival instructors René Nauta and Mike – happy bunny – Armstrong gave them an intense week of river crossings, building shelter, setting traps and looking for burdocks. The last 3 days of the course, the group was divided in two teams of four persons and we had to survive in the woods with just a knife, a billycan, some fishline and brass wire (so no food, tent, sleeping bag, matches, etc.) We all made it but I lost 4 kilos bodyweight!
Other survival and bushcraft courses I went on.
