Some backpacking, long distance cycling, canoeing, etc. Just started learning friction fire (bow and hand drill) and identifying edible and medicinal wild plants.
Anything from brain/bark tanning, animal processing, natural plant uses (cordage, dyes, medicine, etc.) to knapping, friction fire techniques, bow making, improvised traps and hunting weapons.
Sure, I'd be glad to lend a hand with getting something together.
If anything, I can share what successes and mistakes I have made and learned from thus far.
I'm very new to the primitive skills world. A simple bow drill fire demo at the Oregon Country Fair helped to set me on my new path. I am interested in learning whatever primitive skills I can and passing them on to others.
