Wilderness Safety Essentials and Preparedness with Next Adventure

We're stoked to say we were able to reschedule this clinic with Next Adventure to bring you this compact Wilderness Safety Essentials and Preparedness class. 


This is not a clinic to get any sort of certifications, but to cover basics of what you need to know to deal with an emergency until you can reach help. In addition to the things that will make your life easier should the terrible happen. 


Next Adventure is not only a sponsor of Karl's Mystery Rides, but also Portland premier local outdoors store. They have their flagship store on SE Grand & Stark, along with two Paddle Sports Centers and their online store. This great store was conceived by Deek and Bryan in 1997 selling only used gear and closeouts, and has now grown into what it is today. They still maintain a great selection of used gear downstairs in the Summer, as well as their affordable in-house brand Wilderness Technology. We love them, and are proud to be sponsored by Next Adventure!
