Discussion in 'General Bushcraft Discussion' started by Jason, Jun 28, 2009.
I'm a @Wasp recruit.
Watching a Joe Robinet video. He showed off his sitting pad made by Phantom X. A short google search later and here I am.
I believe I was just searching "Bushcraft EDC Gear" and through a series of clicks I came across the site. Haven't looked back. In the short time I have been here I have learned a ton and just recently started weighing in some threads.
I just sorta stumbled upon it searched for bushcraft propably
I googled some pics of adriondack to show my wife where my son and I would be camping and got a few returns for this forum. Browsed around and decided "this is a place for me".
Doug Linker (pka: Doug Outside) Love this site! I have note book near full of info just in a few weeks, I like to take these
notebooks to the woods and draw leave's, grass, tree's kind of the way Lewis and Clark may have done, considering
that's about how naive i am about these things thanks bcusa.
I was lookin for information and I fell into it like a butterbar lieutenant into a vc tiger trap.
My life has not been the same since.
Watching Joe Robinet
I was searching pack information initially. Then, when searching knife info.
The rest is history.
I was looking at tarps and someone mentioned how much they liked there bcusa tarp. I thought it was a foreign name so I googled it and found this site. I've read for years and decided to join in the fun
I was looking at some product reviews online and the website just popped out...
Several searches on Google brought me to post on BCUSA, I was (and still am) very impressed with the freely given knowledge, generosity, and support shared here. After lurking for a bit I decided to join, started to participate, a couple weeks later I became a supporter. I had joined a few forums before BCUSA but I never clicked with them of the people using them, and left them after lurking.
Welcome. I joined few days ago. Still looking around .. ha ha...
Thank you, welcome @Code of The West Survival back to ya, Check out the BushClass USA forum, https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/forums/bushclass-usa.132/.
I found BushCraft USA from watching various bushcraft youtubers, who had mentioned it in there videos, mainly Joe Robinet.
I think I was googling info on the Tops Tracker.
I found it thru r/Bushcraft on reddit. Just been a lurker for now. I have learnt a lot from this site. Waiting for nicer weather, not one for winter.
I was looking for information about William Collins’ knives and stumbled on a discussion thread here. I’ve been coming here daily ever since.
I was actually googling a question and ended up finding it via the answer iirc. I also apparently joined up back in 2016 but didnt remember it and got my account opened back up now.
I was looking for reviews of Boreal Mountain Anoraks and came up with a link to this great forum.
Joe Robinet videos on youtube,,,
Just did a Google search lol
Love it here, really good and informative.No snide comments etc,just cool people who are helpful x
Search engine, don’t remember which one. For a while I frequented several sites, including the UK sites. All good sites but this one is the only one I participate in now.
I watched Alone and became interested in more than tossing up a tent and using a camp stove with free dried meals. Went to youtube and started watching Joe Robinet and others and it was a short step from my knife passion to the internet for bushcraft forums.
i found it by researching chaga and how to find it and how to make chaga tea and extract
Lookin' for axe stuff.
I heard about it on the Joe Robinet YouTube channel. I discovered his channel recently and it lead me to a lot of places.
I was reading about Frost River packs and the forum came up in some of the reviews.. figured I better check it out
I first bumped into it a long time ago looking for goodness knows what on Google, I want to say backpacking stove details. Something to do with preparedness, because I was setting up my first go bag and I think I was looking at Jetboils. Different time in my life! I've mellowed a lot (moving out of the northeast didn't hurt). Kept the bag together though, dang tornadoes.
BushClass brought me back for good and prompted registration. This is going to be embarrassing for a grown-ass man, but I was trying to come up with a list of non-firearm "ranger" skills to go learn so I could pass them to my kids (as in, Robert Rogers... or Aragorn, or Beleg... not the tiger-punching kind). I'd been pounding away at bolt-action rifle marksmanship (thanks Appleseed) and bounced off of it, conceptually speaking. BushClass was pretty much a point-by-point list of the things I was looking to learn.
I was looking up 'naughty' pics and seeing this site has "bush" in the title..... Here I am....
I came across this site a time or two over the past few years looking up certain things, decided to join last night. So, here I am.
Browsing the for gun forums.
I just googled "bushcraft" and went down the line checking them out. This was one of the few that grabbed my attention enough to keep me coming back to so finally I signed up.
Joe Robinet on You Tube
some one on the survivalist forum recommended bushcraft forum.
I was searching for info on axe repair and the google spit out a link to here. Ive spent the last few days reading and browsing and realizing I've only barely scratched the surface.
Was refered here and urged to come check it out from a local member in my area @Kurt992
I found this site in a pretty roundabout way. A work collegue was busting my chops about not having a go bag in my car, so I decided I wasn't prepared for a dang thing. That thought led me to check out go bags, get home bags -all the shtf bags lol. Then I was like "Well if I have to ditch my car and walk, what do I have to know to survive the potential 60 mile trek home?" So I researched prepper stuff, ultra light backpacking stuff, survivalist stuff, and then the internet kept showing me forum threads from BushcraftUSA.com and here I am!
" i was watching bushcraft videos on youtube and found foals channel. he mentioned the site so i thought i would check it out. "
It was recommended to me a few years back from more than one source. On a knife forum that has since disappeared.............now it seems to be the last best forum around (by my standards anyway)so I decided to come back and am sure glad I have and hope I can stay this time..............
this type of place is pretty unique and draws a wonderful group. I trust that it will exist for at least as long as I do............. the tradition here now attracts me. There is a wonderful history here
Got a heads up from a Fellow Beckerhead Brother @The Warrior
I followed @Woods Walker and @Blaze here and I'm so glad I did.
I was watching a YouTube channel, Joe Robinet Bush craft and he talked about being a member and he said to look at Iowa woodman's channel, I watch both still, took me sometime to look up bushcraft USA. I am not a reach man and new I would be spending money as soon as I joined bushcraft USA. And I have got books and a few other things. But I learned about Bushcraft USA from the to YouTube channels mentioned above..
yeah Joe's channel is what got me started in to wanting to learn about bushcraft too then i reached out to 88 tactical about there classes and a guy working there referred me here thanks again @Kurt992
I stumbled across it years back while looking for some info on a knife of some sort, seems like I remember it being the Tracker knife. There's a dwindling number of us here that were once part of a now defunct forum. Not sure if I signed up before or after that place shutdown but I did sign up here at some point. Due to life and all I've been kinda in and out over the years but unless something crazy happens I'm here to stay.
I was watching bushcraft videos on YouTube and Joe Robinet gave a shout out to the forum saying it was a good place for information
I was looking up info on Grumman canoes
Zed Outdoors mentioned the forums in one of his YouTube episodes. I do favor the UK flavour of bushcraft, with the emphasis on a lot of familiar things, such as green woodworking and making tea at every possible opportunity. But I am in the US, and need the local knowledge, too.
I wish. But, given my interest in knives, I guess it was my need for new info that other forums were unable to fulfull.
But I'm really glad I found BCU - this is by far the most friendly AND resourceful forum I've found. And I'm counting both good Czech and International forums.
Thank you all for being here for me, with my important needs and stupid questions!
In my case, it was from an aside comment in a YouTube presentation. Yup, I might talk slow but I don't miss much...!
