    I’m Si! I am a ranch hand as well as a primitive skills instructor! I hope to Gain knowledge from this forum as well as hopefully let you all learn something as well. Well I’ll tell y’all a little bit about me. I have been practicing primitive skills for as long as I can remember. As a young teenager I was very much interested in Stone Age survival skills such as flintknapping, hide tanning, friction fire, and other things such as making shelters for long term wilderness living. During my later teenage years my time was spent living in a primitive shelter deep in the forest behind my parents house. I’m still doing Stone Age skills and have found enjoyment in sharing them with others (which is kinda why I’m here lol). I love primitive living skills and such but I also love homesteading and self sustainable living and I have found a love for the off grid life. So with that being said I’m very interested in homesteading and just being off grid. I make all of my tools with an makeshift forge and enjoy making things out of buckskin such as moccasins, pouches, and knife sheaths. I work on a horse ranch as well as teaching primitive skills courses on the weekends.
