So, last year I decided I wanted to try blogging. Well I got sidetracked fairly easily. I'm still hoping to post more blog posts in the future. This year should be a good year for me. I plan on trying to finish up bush class intermediate. I also hope to start on the Hardwoodsmans Tab. I have...

After reading through my previous four entries and making a few corrections to clarify and make them more readable, it occurs to me that I've had quite a lot of interesting experiences in my life. I've never really thought about my life that way, but having lived it all, it just seems fairly...

I've been kinda keeping track of this nuclear meltdown mess since it happened. The situation is much worse than the government or media will have you believe. I'm not a nuclear engineer or do I totally understand radiation terminology. What I do understand is that the Pacific Ocean is in dyer...

Failure. It haunts our steps. It looms in the recesses of our minds. It towers above all of our successes as some great disaster ready to fall upon us without any warning; a great destroyer against whom most men fear to stand. Failure. It is one of our greatest fears. How many times...

Hello Everyone, I joined BushcraftUSA in an attempt to further my knowledge. I am no bushcraft expert, however I spent a large amount of my free time growing up camping out with the Boy Scouts and my younger brother. As I am sure many of you can relate, as I "grew up" and began working...

The greatest thing I can make is a mistake... as long as I can learn from it. The most important thing I can do is be wrong... as long as I can learn from it. Before I learned anything about Bushcraft being a thing, I was/am an Ultralight Backpacker (can you hear the eyes rolling from that...

Hunting alone is a labor of love. Long before the milk men have even stirred from their slumber I walk down a dirt road, quickly closing my eyes when a car’s startling white headlights illuminate my face, in a vain attempt to preserve my night vision. Upon reaching a small line of pebbles...

I read a post earlier that was along the vein of... bushcraft has run its course. A thought. I saw today that someone was doing a GAW to a youngster for a Buck knife. I decided to add a one year supporter subscription to the GAW. I'm not mentioning for my edification, but rather an idea. What...

I have recently discovered a sort of niche shotgun. Mainly water fowler’s shotguns, but the odd upland gun is out there too from the era between muzzleloaders and the advent of steel shot. These are already getting a bit harder to find, but they are out there and while the prices have crept up,...

These days I don’t usually go out on the company’s boats unless there is a problem of some sort that requires my attention. I had not only to go out on one the other day I had to take a smaller boat to get out to it. I was sitting in a small cuddy cabin in the bow of a working skiff and was...

My calendar opened this morning to remind me of one several anniversaries I keep tabs on – this one is the day, 29 years ago already, the forgotten would be world champion Ferrari’s Didier Pironi was killed. In August of 1982 Pironi was leading the F1 Driving championships. His teammate Gilles...

Using flint and steel to start a fire isn't just about starting a fire. It is a ritual as old as steel itself, perhaps even older. It is a form of meditation practicing patience and getting your mind right. It is a way to be a part of the fire making process that just doesn't come from using a...
