Hello! I'm a librarian by trade. Grew up in the Girl Scouts; took every opportunity to go camping & participate in eco-/conservation kinds of activities. Then got sidetracked with other stuff for way too long.

Basic skill level, (done in suburban Scout camp/forest preserve setting, not "real" wilderness). A little knowledge & experience finding/making emergency shelter out of tarp/poncho/plastic sheeting/found materials; laying a fire, starting it w/flint & steel, hand or bow drill; cooking w/o manufactured utensils (e.g., eggs packed in mud, bacon & eggs in a brown paper bag and on a rock; stick/spit-roasting, roasting directly in the coals; whittling & using homemade utensils; a bit of reflector-oven baking; boiling water to purify; basic knots & lashing; basic first aid; have cleaned fish; used to have basic compass skills, some weather-reading, wee bit of stargazing; a bit of plant identification including a little knowledge of edible plants. Haven't done most of these in many years, though and am pretty rusty.
Not really. Most of my experience is base camp type.
Skill strengths include fire building, using an ax (both short and long handle), pretty good at teaching skills to others (did quite a bit of that in Scouts).
Hi Kathy, welcome to our group. Hope to see you at a gig soon!
