Hello my fellow forest dwellers. I just found out recently that I'm a "bushcrafter". Been called a lot of things before, but that's not one of them. I was raised in the woods of upstate NY, and have always loved being close to nature. At about 20 years old, I had to check out the city life, and spent 10 years on Long island. I didn't like it very much. At 30, picked up and moved out West to beautiful Montana shortly after 9/11. I spent 14 years out there. I've been back east now for about a year, and miss my mountain state. I've always loved camping and survival stuff, though I've never thought of being out, and one with nature as surviving. I guess that's what bushcraft is. Getting away from the grind, and back were I belong. While recovering from surgery from the car accident that stranded me back east, I discovered YouTube, and with that, Joe Robinet. He has inspired me to get back in the woods, no matter where I am. Thanks Joe. He's also the reason I'm here on this site, so you can thank him too. I'd like to think I've got a lot to contribute, and learn as well. I'm not as tech savvy as a lot of others, although you've probably already figured that out by my just discovering YouTube confession earlier. I don't do social media, and don't have a Facebook page or anything like that. But I will do this. Anyway, I think I wrote enough to start, and look forward to meeting like minded people on here. Doing some trips would be fantastic! Ciao for now.
