What is your experience with bushcrafting, woods skills, tracking and survival skills?

There are about 100 native edible plants that I can identify, and many more that are not edible. I'm pretty good with mushrooms. I also have some experience with: bow making, flintknapping, skin-on-frame kayaks, pottery, and other things.

What drew your interest to this group?

I like bushcraft; it's fun. And, I thought that it might be nice to meet some folks who are also interested in bushcraft.

What skill (bushcrafting, survival, tracking) interests you the most?

There's no one thing that interests me the most. Here are some things that are on my mind: riving, making better cordage, beekeeping, drop spindles, soap making, net making, tanning hides, skin-boats, arrow making, hand-line fishing, flintknapping, foraging, hunting, bow-making, friction fire, primitive pottery, basket making, trapping, sewing, dug-out canoes, mushrooms...

Are you more interested in class environments, collaborative learning or social gatherings with a bushcraft/survival/tracking theme to meet others with similar interests?

I'm a do-it-yourselfer, so I lean more toward the collaborative learning side. Let's sit down and share what we know.


I'm really interested in nature and learning how to do the things that our ancestors did that we have forgotten how to do.
