I spend quite a lot of time outdoors hiking and learning bush craft skills. So I know a variety of skill sets from raft making, to fire skills, to shelter building, to water purification. So I have learned a lot, but there's always more to know.
Anything that's specific to the high desert. Local Wild edibles for one. Local resources and how to utilize them. Really, I've never gained a skill I've regretted, so I'm looking to learn anything people are willing to share.
Not at this time
Yes. I'm a traditional boyer by hobby. I'm pretty solid in knife skills, some trapping techniques. Working with sinew, and animal hides, bow string making, shelter building, and a variety of fire starting techniques.
I've spent most of my dirt time in the woods of Illinois, I'm new here and looking to learn to survive in a high desert environment that is different from my deciduous background.
