Morakniv Adventure 2019
Welcome to the deep woods of Mora where you can explore what Morakniv and adventure is all about. By combining inspiring workshops, a factory visit at Morakniv and trekking in Swedish nature the Morakniv Adventure is somewhat unique in its form. Get to know our brand ambassadors and meet new friends from all over the world, share beautiful moments and laughter by the campfire that will last for a lifetime.
On the hike you will pass a number of workshops.
The Patient Assessment System (PAS) is a tool for organizing the response to any situation involving an ill or injured person. Properly applied, the PAS will lead you to a concise description of the problems you are facing and what you are going to do about them. The scene size up helps keep you alive and functioning. It also serves to protect other rescuers, bystanders, and the patient from further harm. If you are among the first on scene, a complete scene size up is your first responsibility. Primary Assessment is a quick check on the status of the patients three critical body systems, circulatory, respiratory and nervous. The purpose is to identify and correct immediate threats to the patient’s life. These three systems are equally important to survival and major problems associated with these systems are equally dangerous. In this workshop, you will learn how to identify the scene size up & find the 3 critical body system problems and fix as you find them.
Primitive Trapping Mechanisms
In this class we will learn several triggering systems that can be used for many different traps depending on the situation and quarry, we will carve several triggers and build a few traps to get you some hands on experience and familiarity with both mammal and bird traps as well as traps that can be used for fishing. We will use several simple notching techniques to accomplish this and this can all be done with only a knife if needs be. Keep in mind that these traps are not approved for hunting in many places and that this workshops intent is to teach survival skills for emergency situations.
The aim is to provide practical backcountry cooking hands-on workshops.
We want to educate Morakniv Adventure attendees that fresh ingredients combined with dry basics and a range of spices and herbs, and some easy cooking techniques can provide the inspiration to create great dishes at home and in the outdoors.
All cooking workshops will be hands-on as we have found practical workshops to be way more effective in terms of learning than demos alone.
