    Trailhawk,

    I need to get out there. Please keep me posted. Maybe in 2012. Even though I'm 1/2 Pinoy, I've never been there. What a great excuse to travel!

    We have a strict gun law here but everyone carries a gun, especially those who can afford. Also there is an underground gun industry that imitates Colt 1911, SW revolvers, shotguns, M16s in the north of my town.

    I just convened and finished the PHILIPPINE INDEPENDENCE BUSHCRAFT CAMP 2012 on almost the same campsite as that of the first edition.

    Highlights of the event were: Bushcraft camp and lectures, spoon carving, campsite storytelling and yarn, nocturnal hunting, singing of the national anthem, oath of allegiance to flag and country and, not the least, the blade pageant.

    Topics of the PIBC MMXII syllabus were: Introduction to Bushcraft and Survival, Survival Tool-Making, Everyday Carry, Knife Care and Safety, Foraging, Firecraft and Outdoors Cooking.

    I will post pictures soon.

    Tomorrow - September 28 - I will be heading north to Manila to convene another bushcraft camp belonging to the members of the Mountain Climbers Alliance of the Philippines, Inc.. The MCAP is a national umbrella organization of Filipino mountaineers.

    Very cool post Trailhawk. #It brought back memories of 1974 when I was in the Marines and stationed in Cubi Point. #I attended JEST, Jungle Environmental Training. #I had a ball, learning from a couple of Negrito trainers. #They had amazing skills! #We ate snake, snails, fish & rice. #Cooked it all up in a bamboo "pressure cooker," like in your pictures. #I bought a nice bolo in a wooden sheath. #Unfortunately it got stolen shipping it home. #Looks like a great event. #Be sure to post more pictures.

    Sir, thank you for the comments. So you were once a Philippine visitor. I have not been to JEST but I learned a lot of bushcraft skills from my grandfather which I shared to the younger generations of our local outdoorsmen for free during my weekend grassroots bushcraft twice a month. I organize a #Philippine Independence Bushcraft Camp every June 10, 11 and 12 with a minimal fee of only 800 pesos inclusive of six meals, handouts, certificates and t-shirt.

    If only bamboo would grow in the US, it would make a good roasting pole for wild boar, deer or turkey. Cheers!

    Some varieties of bamboo grow naturally and there are several invasive species, but it isn't as common or large as it grows in other parts of the world. I've used it for fishing poles, walking sticks, and tiki torches, but at least in the mid-atlantic states it doesn't get enough diameter to use for bowls or water storage.
