Bill Downey - Wherever his opportunities take him, Downey strives to blend his passion for teaching, for being in wild places, and for remote medicine and survival skills.Bill Downey

His classroom may be on a university campus, in an alcove in the desert southwest, an historic bungalow in rural India, or along a river bank. Wherever his opportunities take him, Downey strives to blend his passion for teaching, for being in wild places, and for remote medicine & survival skills.

A native of Chicago, he's made his home in a remote Utah desert town for the past 10+ years where he is a firefighter/paramedic. Experience in cultural resource preservation has given him a unique insight into how bushcraft is not a novelty for the present, but an integral part of our humanity and the development of societies. As a whitewater river guide he has had the opportunity to explore unique and very remote parts of the western United States, and facing challenges in providing patient care & rescue in remote locations where calling for help is not an option. In recent years he's spent much of his time looking at the ground in minute detail as he sharpens his skills in tracking. A professional educator specializing in wilderness medicine, Downey is proud to bring his expertise to Ancient Pathways.
