    Along with many of you, I occasionally like to wax philosophical... and doing things bushcraft seems to really get me into that frame of mind.

    In any case, I was wondering....

    If you had to choose one word to describe your bushcraft journey or experience, what would that one word be?

    For me, I almost chose "patience ", but then changed my mind (that darn waxing philosophical again), and so my word is:

    perseverance.

    Anyone?

    Blisters.

    No wait! Splinters.
    That's not it either. Sunburn?
    Frostbite? Bandaids? Ibuprofen?

    Hmmm. Great question, @Beach Hiker! :dblthumb:

    Consonance

    Definition of consonance
    1: a harmony or agreement among components

    For me, bushcraft embodies the tranquility of my physical being, my peace of mind, and the symphony of spirit I experience while in harmony with nature and all things wild. The four elements (earth, air, water & fire) combined with mind, body, and spirit.
