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