Meet Survival Expert Creek Stewart

Learn to use standard household items to survive with these pro tips from Stewart.

by: The Backpacker Editors

Creek Stewart

Author and survival specialist Creek Stewart became an Eagle Scout at 14 and taught his very first survival class at age 21. Today, he owns and operates a 10,000 square foot survival lodge and 21-acre training facility: WillowHaven Outdoor (willowhavenoutdoor.com) in Central Indiana.

Stewart teaches regular clinics to individuals, families, and corporate groups to ready them for sudden survival scenarios, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks. “Things like knowing how to start a fire, how to build a temporary shelter, or even just sharpening your knife are all crucial skill sets to possess," says Stewart.

Stewart is the author Build the Perfect Bug-Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit (Betterway Home, May 2012)
