A collection of excellent wilderness survival, primitive skills and bushcraft content. Most info about wilderness survival is copied from military survival manuals and old camp craft books. This site is different.

My name is Juan Pablo Quiñonez. I am confident I can carve a bow drill set in the field and start a friction fire using a cord and knife anywhere on earth (where there are trees). I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (2650 miles in 99 days) in 2012, before studying Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership. I have canoed over a thousand miles including the Hayes and Bloodvein rivers; and I am fascinated by hunting-gatherer societies, primitive technology and friction fires.

Survival Skills Guide will have only the best content out there striving to make this site the best guide for anyone interested in living in the wilderness and wanting to obtain most of their food or a portion through a combination of hunting, gathering, trapping, fishing, and farming. I spent 6 months living in the wilderness with my partner, complementing our rations with food that we could harvest off the forest. I am obsessed with wilderness living.

I want to create a guide of what it takes to design a long term wilderness survival strategy for an extended adventure. This is basically the guide I will use the next time I go out to the wilderness to live off the land; I intend to share the lessons learned from my outdoor experiences and specifically from my 180 days in the wild.
