    Hi folks, and happy new year.

    I am a Bushcrafting enthusiast (obviously) and I love the woods. I am also interested in gardening and hunting, though I have zero hands on experience. I do intend to get some experience when the time and place is right.

    Getting into the woods reinvigorates my mind, body and soul. Bushcrafting exponentially heightens this experience. Hiking and going to the park or golf course are nice ways to take in some nature, but getting my hands dirty and interacting with the surroundings is what I love to do. The sight, sounds and smell of a campfire, a babbling creek, the smell and of a fresh caught trout, it all harkens back to a beautiful time when humans lived more "deliberately," as the philosopher would say.

    My imagination embellishes my own camping trips as I work on different things, get a fire going, craft items and tools... I forget about the real world and, for a time, I am all that is man. The woods are my playground, and I thank God to be alive while this green earth is still healthy.

    Looking forward to chatting with you all :)

    Hello and welcome from Washington State. I, too, find the clangor of the manmade life to be harsh, and seek the quiet of a more natural environment for restoration.

    Yes! Getting outside for some Bushcrafting always makes me feel better if I am down mentally or physically. It makes me feel even better when I'm doing just fine.
