Belize Bruce has been learning and studying the art of tracking and the flow of the nature since he was a small child. He first learned these ancient arts from his parents, his grand parents and other relatives who had to really live these skills while growing up in the mountains of western Pennsylvania during the Great Depression. During those times, you truly had to know the wilderness in order to survive. In 1993, Bruce founded the Virtual Mountain Wilderness Survival Foundation in southern New Hampshire where he helped mentor over 10,000 students of all ages, reconnecting them back to nature. Bruce is a certified Herbalist, a traditional Usui Reiki Master and has lived off the grid for several decades. He has sold and installed solar energy systems, converted hundreds of vehicles to run off restaurant waste vegetable oil (SVO/WVO) and has developed several hydrogen fuel cells for vehicle and cooking stoves applications that are especially designed for 3rd world countries. Bruce moved down to the Rainforest and Jungles of southern Belize in 2004 and lived with the Kek Chi Mayan tribes in a very remote area to learn the jungle's knowledge firsthand before they were totally lost. In turn, he also brought them back some of the ancient skills that they had forgotten, such as fire by friction and flint knapping. Bruce quickly picked up the jungle lore from his Mayan, East Indian and other indigenous Belizean neighbors and studied with many indigenous herbalists and healers in Belize, Guatemala and Mexico. In addition to many decades of wilderness survival situations, Bruce has also survived several "urban" survival situations, including the partial nuclear melt down of 3 Mile Island in 1979. Even back then, Bruce always had his "go" pack ready and he and a friend spent an enjoyable 2 week backpacking trek 150+ miles away from ground zero. He knew when it was safe to come out of the woods by listening to the radio and watching his civil defense radiation survey meter.
