Self study of Tom Brown's wilderness survival book including practice in woods building shelters (mostly lean-tos). Years of intermediate backpacking experience. Good at building the makings of a fire and the building and maintaining of a good fire (using a lighter or match ). Swimming in cold rivers is a strength of mine.
Making fire without a match or lighter. Traps. Stalking. Local plant knowledge.
perhaps, down the road if i'm really getting involved.
shelter building, some fire building, hiking skills, proper packing and wearing of packs . . .
I'm 32, single mom, lover of the arts and of the scientific method, and a biophiliac. Came from TExas 13 years ago. Oregon has always felt more like home to me.
