I've been doing bushcraft and old school woods stuff for about 30 years. I do a lot of self reliance and old-tech type of stuff like tanning and skin working, working with natural materials, growing food, wood, metal, stone, bone all that stuff. I went through a primitive technology phase in the 90s and still have a business with my ex called Paleotechnics. For me this stuff has always been more about evolving toward a more engaged lifestyle than as a hobby, and now I homestead on 40 acres. I am a born experimenter and teacher. I spend a lot of my energy now on experimenting and re-learning old skills, but all of it really to the end of contributing to the re-skilling of people. I consider it my duty to subvert the paradigm of physical and mental helplessness that is spreading like a disease throughout modern humanity. Most of my content is on Youtube under SkillCult, all of which is also indexed on my website, skillcult.com along with all of my old articles and such from other blog projects. Looking forward to interesting discussions, learning stuff and sharing what I have to offer.
