    I wouldn’t figure Tickle as your cousin after watching him trying to roast that pig that time .
    I wish I was related to those two older guys , can’t remember their names but they built a double still ,trying to blend two different mash together . At least I think it was them . Those guys are hilarious and smart too .

    I guess folks just go by the accent. I know the two guys you mentioned, they seem realistic and not quite as nutty as them other Moonshiners. That's a pretty entertaining show

    Seems like they’re pretty brave too . I’m sure without the actual product they can’t be charged with any thing but I’m sure the ATF would love to make an example out of them .

    Heeeyyy, everybody! Look who decided to drop by and sit for a spell. [​IMG]

    Love your Youtube stuff, @ReallyBigMonkey1. I've learned a lot from you... while being entertained at the same time. :cool:

    Wolf427 has a good list on Page 2 here. Maybe not bushcrafty enough for some, Canadian Prepper has many good videos.

    ...about prepping.

    He has a somewhat condescending view of bushcraft. I do, however, enjoy his armchair psychologist/sociologist commentaries and speculations about human behavior in post-collapse society and Without Rule of Law scenarios.

    I lean more towards survivalism than to primitive technology such as https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAL3JXZSzSm8AlZyD3nQdBA. I build computers or make knives or clothing because I can't buy what I want for what I can afford, not because I like to necessarily make stuff, but because I want to use it. Unlike the difference between the folks that like to make, for example, homemade airplanes. They spend months making the plane and just hours flying, because what they really like is the building time.

    Canadian Prepper seems to have a limited view of bushcraft in the video you shared, and yet he also went out at -33 in just a base layer: . So he has his own contradictions.

    Here on BushcraftUSA, bushcraft includes many things, including homesteading.

    He also recently did a 3 day outing in which he ended up sleeping in his sled because he forgot to bring a piece of his cot (19:40 for that moment).




    No quite so "prepared" there, was he? If he paid a little more attention to bushcraft he might have been able to make himself a nice, cozy raised bed for the second night. But nope, in the sled again. :rolleyes:

    I'll cut him some slack, since he looks to be about half my age. Back then, I made a lot more stupid mistakes, too.

    Here's a new channel with a lady bushcrafter.



    She's not new to Youtube, she's had a Bavarian channel for 4 years. The one above is her English venture. I hadn't seen her before, but I like her so far and think she's worth checking out.

    I watched this one this morning. Good video. Better as it went along. She threw me when she put the sausages into the cup of water she was boiling. I thought she was making coffee or something, lol. It just goes to show you, you don't need a large container to cook stuff in.

    Anybody watch Joe's latest yet? I see he uploaded one 17 hours ago.
    At 2-1/2 hours long... I'd have to plan my day around this one o_O

    Yes, I watched half of Joe's latest last night after work, and the rest this morning. Good video on low priced gear. The Fiskar's hatchet was impressive, and the cooking set was good, too.

    She surprised me when she flopped that HUGE steak in the pan she was warming up over a twig stove. :eek::D

    Some good foraging, too. She appears to know her mushrooms. I like her camera work and music choices.



    I did watch it. Well, most of it. I let it run while making dinner and a few other chores. But I was still listening to it all. Not bad. It was an interesting concept... the whole "complete camping setup from Walmart" thing.

    I've seen other reviews where people have been impressed with the Fiskars axes. I own the X15. Perfectly good axe for an apartment fireplace or simple camping tasks. I don't think I would want to throw mine at a tree, though. I have seen pictures of the fibercomp handle breaking at the axe head.

    lol, yeah, that was a big piece of meat!
    I thought maybe some was for the dog, but she was feeding it something out of a can.

    I've been enjoying some Camping with Steve Wallis lately. Not bushcrafty, more just camping.

    Bedtime with Vanessa? :D

    I love that place she found for a shelter. I think that shot she made while doing her morning routine makes for such an incredibly serene scene.

    A link in Canadian Prepper's interview with Guy McPherson, (To me, this interview is crap, but here is a link if you want to see for yourself:



    is an interesting interview with Richard Manning:

    .

    Maybe one of the strongest endorsements of bushcraft and wilderness living I have seen.

    OK. This is NOT a favorite, but I didn't want to start a whole thread on videos driving me crazy tonight ;)
    I have been literally 3/4 of the way in on a whole bunch of new Canteen Cup Tuesday videos in my recommended list... which for some is 8 minutes in... and nothing is being cooked yet! One the guy didn't even have his fire going yet :54:

    But this one had me LOL. I had to back it up to make sure I saw what I thought I saw.
    Go to 4:30 and tell me this guy doesn't burn himself.


    Why did he even have that burner going so early?
    And he fast forwards through the food prep... and back to normal speed so we can watch him drink his drink?

    Dang, I wish something good was on TV tonight ;)

    Only a commercial, but makes all the axe and batoning talk seem way overblown.

    I really like this video. Very relaxing with the babbling brook in the background. I could do without the "nom, nom, nom..." lol, but overall it's pretty nice.
    If you make it all the way to the end you'll see one of the cleanest camp sites left. He even packs out his charcoal.

    And I really like the way he cooks using just his mess kit. He shows that you don't have to have everything done at once. Cook, eat; cook, eat; cook, eat. At least that would work for folks that like to cook. If you're going to sit around a campfire you might as well be cooking ;)

    I've got another favorite YT channel to start binge watching.
    I have no idea where this guy is from. The characters in his titles appear Japanese/Chinese or something, but he uses containers that have labels written in German. I can't make out his nationality from his looks alone. And his settings are usually very jungle-like. No talking, just a man going about his business of setting up camp, cooking and exploring. Much like Log Shige's videos, but a bit more primitive. Well used gear and nothing fancy.

    A couple things I picked up was the way he wears his Eldris. Not just around the neck, but he puts an arm through the loop, too. I imagine you don't need to worry about having (or not having) a breakaway lanyard if your arm is also through the loop.
    And in the winter camping video I liked the way that every chance he got he was using every available container to melt snow.

    Anyway...

    Another plug for Vanessa in the beautiful Bavarian Woods. Sporting a new red hair color and lovely flannel for Fall. I really admire her for her knowledge of wild edibles and foraging.






    Hah! It's a Japanese channel from Bushcraft Bear. Only he's calling it "kitsune" (key-tsu-ney), or "fox."

    I love his "silent" style. Pretty sure he's German. He's been inactive for the past 6 months, but I see he just posted a new hiking video.

    I recall seeing some German words on a package of something he was using.

    Don't think so. I remember someone saying something about a falling out of sorts, but I didn't pay much attention to it.

    I like Joe. His Youtube content is among the best.

    Heh... Yes, *in spite of everything politically correct*... It's okay to call a grown woman a "girl."

    If you like cooking videos...
    Slow start, but it picks up.


    I can't believe the amount of food this guy eats at one sitting. My hero, lol.

    Lots of good channels out there. Girl in the woods is my favorite. She's a fun, wacky nut, just like I am. I like bushradical her husband's channel too.

    I’ve been watching Rune-Malte, Swedwoods and Wild Woman Bushcraft for last six months or so. The former two I like the best.

    I prefer channels where there is no or very little talking.

    Used to watch Robinet and TA outdoors, but too much talking with these two for my taste.
