Welcome to the Warrior Mission Program. Where we develop and create gamified, strategic, real-world missions to aid our Tribe Operatives in the training and education of preparedness skill sets. Our missions are designed to bridge the gap that lies between knowledge and skill through a systematic method of learning called, The Primal Method. You never really know where a mission may lead you or what skills and knowledge it will require to complete it. They are designed to challenge you across all 6 layers of The Primal Method.

Anyone can follow along and do these missions as we create new missions and guides. However, the actual program that includes a gamified points system with a leaderboard, extra training, and rewards packages that are sometimes worth thousands of dollars is exclusively reserved for our Warrior Tribe Operatives who hold a clearance level of Charlie or above.


Mission Briefing

A simple day hike to improve your health and situational awareness.


  • Backpack
  • Camera / Cell phone


  1. Complete a 3-mile day hike
  2. During the hike, you need to capture the following photos 👇🏼
    1. Selfie
    2. Your backpack
    3. Landscape
    4. An animal or insect
    5. A plant/fungus
    6. A Tree
  3. Once you complete your hike and capture the photos, you must research and identify the animal/insect, plant/fungus, and tree that you photographed, then provide an interesting fact about each of them.


  • Ensure you have permission to hike at the location you have selected.
  • Make sure you put some thought into the photos you take. Take your time and make them the best you can.
  • You can also take videos alongside the photos you take. It would be wise to just do both.
  • Use a fitness tracker to track your hike mileage.

This was a simple but great mission to conduct in an afternoon. While you could certainly do it alone, it’s a good opportunity to get the whole family involved. We caught a lot of good sun, got a little sweaty, and learned a few new things about the nature that surrounds us, Mushrooms in particular! We even got a light rain at the top viewing platform which was a nice little cool off. With the hike only being 3 miles this mission should be easily accomplished by anyone of any fitness level. If our kiddos can hack it, so can you!

It was a little challenging to find an animal where we were. It was one of the highest peaks on the east coast and there just wasn’t a ton of animal activity this day I guess. We did see a few birds, but with the kids being kids it was a little hard to not scare away anything before I could capture it on video/photo. So I focused on the insects and we managed to find a cool little silkworm. Hopefully, you will have better luck with finding an animal to capture for this mission than I did. Check out the full video of the mission above!
