L.O.S.T. -TX Survival Training
During the two Texas course, you will learn what is available and useful for the most basic of human needs to survive during an emergency. We cover shelter, locating water and filtration, fire-craft, and wild edibles.
Also included in your training you will learn how to harvest and prepare both game and plants for bodily nutrition and hydration.
Learning how what's needed for your most basic needs in an emergency survival situation is not only smart, it gives you the personal knowledge and security you will need during an outdoor emergency.
Wilderness survival training in Texas is much more than learning to respond in a crisis. Wienert's L.O.S.T. - TX training is a doorway into a rich and rewarding experience of nature and the outdoors.

Wilderness Survival Training in Texas
Ask yourself this question. Could you survive outdoors in a natural disaster for one week without matches, a gun, a knife, food, and the skills needed to survive? Do you really want to rely on someone else to make life and death decisions for you and your family’s survival when things get tough?
At Texas camp, the type of knowledge, training, and certainty of action gives you the edge during any crisis. L.O.S.T-Texas survival training is much more than learning how to respond to a crisis. The skills and techniques you develop during this course are also doorways to a greater and richer experience in the world of nature.
You learn what is available in the outdoors, how to use it, prepare it, to supply the most basic of survival needs. Consider wild plants. Plants can be edible, medicinal, or utilitarian; like a common flower that will slow or stop bleeding; a root to numb a toothache; bark that tastes like root beer; and, plant fiber so strong you can make a bowstring. You will never view a flower, leaf, stalk, bush, stick, or a tree the same way again. Modern technology is great and makes our life more comfortable, but if our cell phone dies, we lose it, forget it, or a hundred other scenarios.
“… being able to make a fire, a survival shelter, and a trap for food, just seems like good skills to acquire…..” ~Joshua P.
"Dear Mark, I wanted to thank you again for a wonderful week, it was very enlightening, humbling and so interesting to get a small glimpse into your wealth of knowledge. I really walked away with more than I thought I would and it has really put a new perspective on things. I look forward to my next adventure with Lifesong!" ~Chris W.
Hi, Mark. This is Qiong. I attended the Texas survival camp last year and had a wonderful time. When people asked me about my best time in America, I always mentioned my experience during the camp. That was probably my most exciting and memorable adventure I have ever done. ~Qiong W.
