No cell phones, no pagers, no found confidence and independence. Find out what it’s like to become truly self-sufficient in the wilderness! The Ultimate Abo is our second "toughest" course and allows you to step back in time a thousand years to experience nature on Her own terms. You’ll spend the first six days of your journey at a remote wilderness base camp. From this high desert, canyon landscape, you will gather and fashion all of your gear from the natural materials around you. For the last three days your tribe will leave the base camp, setting out on foot to explore, travel, and live like nomadic hunter-gatherer’s using only the primitive gear you have created. This is not just another outdoor course, it’s a fresh outlook on your life allowing you to live what you’ve learned!

Experience nine full days of life-sustaining wisdom including all the fun of the “Essential Abo” and “Provident Primitive” courses plus: constructing willow pack-frames, stone and bone tools, the art of primitive cooking including stone boiling, hot rock ovens, wooden grills, coal cooking and more, primitive fishing techniques, cattail and bulrush sleeping mats, finger weaving pack straps and belts, making and using pine-pitch glue, traveling with primitive gear, safe and effective camp site selection, field sanitation and hygiene, natural crafting, safe knife use techniques, and much more! Two meals a day are included for the first six days; we’ll hunt and gather food as a tribe for the last three.

Note: The Ultimate Abo continues to be an ALSS icon course and is based upon Cody’s 30-day Aboriginal Living Skills class he developed and taught for Prescott College in the early 1990's for nearly a decade. He has a special permit from the state of Arizona allowing you unparalleled realistic hunting and gathering experiences. (cross country hiking required)
