    Have not seen much of this channel but I kinda am impressed.
    She knocks out almost 50% of Bushcraft Basic in one vid.

    I've watched quite a few of her videos. Because I'm a fan of Log Shige's channel, she was on my recommended list.

    Very good editing and video skills too, I think filmed by her husband. One video I kind of wondered at when she was piloting a motorboat and her hair was perfectly straight and unmoving. Maybe a green screen background? Anyway nice to see bushcraft action from another country.

    stunning young lady, with wonderful skills, in a decidedly deciduous forest. oh, man, egg drop soup and, i'm guessing, pan-fried pork steak with peanut sauce. my kitten curled up in my lap and watched the whole video. excellent video skills.

    Carving chopsticks would be much easier than carving a spoon or fork.

    You're right about that! I don't bring eating utensils to the woods with me, I always make chopsticks :dblthumb:. When I first started making them I would try and find appropriately sized, straight sticks to use but that didnt pan out well. If they are crooked even a little bit it makes eating with them VERY hard. I found that splitting some wood like kindling and splitting off roughly square shaped pieces for chop sticks works the best :D

    If you click on the white characters instead of watching the video here by hitting the play button, it will open it up at youtube. At least on a computer.

    Batoning a Mora Classic, Mora around the neck, hand hewed cutting board (a personal favorite of mine), egg drop soup, and some kind of steak. So much win in that video!!!

    I'd venture a guess, she looks better, hunkered down, than you ever will.

    I didnt miss it, just wasnt important. I wouldn't want a termite infested tree to be my choice of shelter... especially if a nice storm came along. That's just me though.

    Squatting like that takes a little practice to get down but once you get there, its an awesome skill to have in the woods! I learned it from my dad as well :dblthumb:

    Great find DixieP and thanks for sharing. Someone needs to track her down and send an invite to join the forum - she could teach a lot of us a thing or two I bet.

    I evaluate trees for a living though so it's hard to turn off noticing stuff like that.

    For anyone interested the characters translate as yeren in chinese(thanks Google translate) I know characters often have multiple meanings but I think this is the right one, basically "wildman"

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeren

    The same characters in Japanese mean something along the lines of country bumpkin or idiot. Shes probably not Japanese :D

    I believe I saw Chinese references somewhere in the channel, Sleeping in ancient Chinese villages? It's always interesting to see how other cultures adopt, change, and merge woodland skills together.
