I had the honor and privilege to teach three young Scouts to earn their wilderness survival merit badge. These boys spent an 8 hour day working their tails off to gather resources, learn together and implement their skills and celebrated with building their first fire. Awesome day.

Most of my subscribers don't realize this, but every time I record videos, I tend to do a rant about something that's on my mind. It usually ends up on the cutting room floor, but today I figured I'd let it fly. It's just my opinion, but sometimes my opinions have a bit of substance to them Take it for what it is, but I do not believe the people should fear their government, the government should fear its people. If not, we live in tyranny.

Part 2 1994 Chevy Blazer 1500 4x4 Build A Project For The Kids To Do

This one is a bit of an education and a hands on project for you and the kids to tackle, no matter your experience level.

#OffRoadBuild #AdventureTruckBuild

So, my kids and I decided to build a simple, 4x4 camping and light adventure vehicle out of this 1994 Chevy Blazer Silverado 1500. So far, the entire project has been sponsored by my clients and the vehicle donated by a friend.

It's important that we get back to our roots and pass down valuable skills and knowledge to our kids. We're doing this project as a way to pass on the ability for moms and dads to bond more with their children...while building a really cool truck!

If You'd like to donate any amount to help fund the project, you can do so through paypal:

We all enjoy the wilderness and wish for our children to have experiences society seems to be making antiquated. The problem is, I'm finding more and more that scouting parents aren't even as prepared as their scouts and it's a shame. In this video, let's talk about being more know, being actual responsible guardians of our children!

Bob Wayne Jaeger created One Foot in the Wild quite a few years ago and realized many platforms will not allow him to speak of certain Self-Reliance topics or load videos about hunting and trapping. Therefore, we decided to create this channel to uncensor content any outdoorsman should know without chains.

Self-Reliance is about more than survival, bushcraft, prepping and self-defense. It's about an inner confidence and preparedness that other Self-Reliance Channels don't discuss. Join Bob Wayne Jaeger as he shows and teaches you how to be more Self-Reliant in your life and join a growing community of passion driven, self-sufficient men and women from around the world...all while keeping One Foot in the Wild at all times!
