Vermont Bushcraft retirement Updated 3-10-17 So this will be my Development in Progress thread for my Bushcraft retirement. A couple of years ago I started looking for land in Southern Vermont to be able to visit while still in my working years but also be able to potentially create a go-to-the-woods cabin in my later years as well. I found a place about an hour and a half from where I live and I think will serve me well. Much of Vermont is very steep, mountainous by Eastern standards and rocky. The 10 acres I found are relatively flat and mostly dry which is not easy to find with accessibility. It's right on a paved state route. It's only 300 feet wide but goes back over 1400 feet so it allows plenty of buffer from the road if you choose. Lots of spruce, red pine, maples and birch trees. The placement of a driveway and culverts are under way. Not cheap to do site work. Here is a pic from early Spring from the road A month after closing in April on the land I contacted a local farmer and Excavation guy. A couple of months later he got started. This was about a month ago when he started Heres his helper felling trees Here is Wayne and if you look close his bush dog watching over his shoulder This will be one of the camp/ shelter spots. I plan on having several throughout the property Looking down from above toward the road during the tree and brush burning I will be going up again shortly as there is more driveway going in. It will be right around 450 feet to start with more later as I can afford it. I will post more as it comes along.
