    I am a 45 year old man embarking on my 2nd (or maybe 3rd or 4th...) childhood. I used to very interested in bushcraft and even had the book "Bushcraft" by Richard Graves - back in the 1980s but I never actually practiced the skills I read about so I am definitely a noobie. My wife and I enjoy outdoor activities including gardening and homesteading activities. We have 4 children and had worked our way "up" to a popup camper, but are now desiring to work our way back down to very primitive camping. I went on a little day outing with my 12 year old son last Saturday and we had a blast! All we did was put up a tarp, build a fire, and make some coffee but we connected on that little hike like we haven't in a long time. Looking forward to learning and doing.
