Say you lack fancy gear but have an urgent need to test your survival skills in an inhospitable landscape. Before embarking on any life-threatening adventures, check out the Boulder Outdoor Survival School. Established in the late 1960s, BOSS offers different levels of training designed to make your wilderness experience safe and enjoyable. Field courses take place in Colorado and Utah, using low-tech camping and hiking to teach the ways of the Anasazi, Paiute and Fremont Indians. This is one time you won't mind being BOSSed around.
