Schools For Dudes

If you’re looking forward to using the ol’ “we need to huddle together naked to conserve body warmth” line with University of Colorado coeds, we’ve got bad news for you — this school is actually located in Boulder, Utah. The BOSS program stresses harmony with nature and teaches methods indigenous peoples around the world have used to survive for thousands of years. Stressing technique over technology, the BOSS philosophy is “know more, carry less,” and their 7, 14, and 28-day Field, Skills and Explorer Courses are constructed to help you survive the wilds with “little more than a blanket, poncho, and a knife.” A Poncho?!? What is this, the Ritz?
