Survival Skills with Allan Priddy

Fire, cordage, and the cutting edge are three discoveries which vastly improved the life of the cave man. Allan Priddy offered a two-day outdoor survival class, where participants made cords and rope from plant fiber, old Elvis Presley movie tape, and even toilet paper. 

Marilyn Ames submitted these photos. She writes: Everyone got involved, but Allan is the star here! He's a stand-alone show, and we are so lucky to have him!

This is rope made from a roll of toilet paper. Fun, very utilitarian, and quite artsy! We had a tug o' war with it. Everyone wins when Allan teaches! 
Allan remarked that he has a truck and his dog, Toto. When someone hires him to do a job, they get all three.  Whether for fun or for serious survival skills, Allan is awesome!
