    I want to wrap myself in ventile!!!!

    This little wrapping thing I want to do....I would like to do as cheap as possible...don't blame me, I am Dutch ;) Although I like the products of westwinds/snugpack and snowsled very very much I think they cost to much. I am probably crazy enough to buy one, but then I will just admire it...

    martial arts

    Greetings, I don't think there is a causal relation between martial arts and bushcraft. It is just a matter of chance I guess! If you ask all the practitionars of bushcraft to check in their profile whether they have a drivers license, you might be surprised how many have both bushcraft and...

    Swanndri Bushshirt! What size to buy???

    bushcraft shoes

    Greetings :-D , this is a topic I don't find a lot of info on. The more I read about bushcraft the more I realize most people leave their technical nylon stuff at home and venture in the outdoor with woolens. The more wool I wear the more I am convinced it can't be beaten. But what about...
