Kevin Estela, Writer, History teacher, semiprofessional adventurer, and wilderness survival educator, joins Kifarucast to talk about land nav, essential equipment to carry always, animal signs and trapping, and bug out bags…if you get lost in the backcountry, or if it’s the zombie apocalypse, this is the guy you want with you.
Kevin Estela first fell in love with the outdoors as a child. Entertained by the WWII survival stories his father endured in the jungles of the Philippines, Kevin wanted to learn more. Kevin grew up hiking, kayaking/canoeing, fishing and hunting in New England and spent his free time outside or reading about survival and wilderness skills. Over the years, his childhood interests became stronger and developed into his lifelong passion. Kevin’s passion now includes sharing what he knows with his students, family and friends.
Kevin is the Owner and Head Instructor of Estela Wilderness Education. He brings extensive educational experience to the courses and material he offers. Kevin is a regular contributing author for RECOIL and OFF-GRID Magazine, American Survival Guide, American Frontiersman, Survivor’s Edge and other magazines through Beckett Media, Engaged Media and Athlon Outdoors Media with over 100 published print articles. He is the author of many online articles for various websites and he is the top-billed Contributing Author for the website of Discovery Channel Host, Joel Lambert.
In addition to outdoors education, Kevin has been a Full-time High School History Teacher since 2006.
