On Completing My BushclassUSA Outing #2

   As this is a blog about sharing adventures in bushcraft, it has been a pleasure taking the online BushclassUSA classes and lessons sponsored by BushcraftUSA and then for most of the activities, being able to create videos of those adventures. This past Saturday turned out to be a perfect day for an outing and this time it was a solo trip. So all the video was shot by myself and for some of the distance perspective shots, I had to climb the hills twice. Now I know how Survivorman, Les Stroud feels when he is making his videos. I really do admire his style and I have tried to emulate some of his technique as it makes for great story telling. I hope one day to add some music for some portions of the videos, I just need to find the right tracks.
   This adventure had me sourcing water, lighting fire with flint and steel, foraging for natural tinders and enjoying brief animal encounters and following animal sign. I hope you enjoy the video.

   Thanks for watching and my hope is to bring even better adventures and even more bushcraft activities and challenges to share with you in the future. As always, I encourage you to get out there and try some things and to stop by and share your adventures. Happy Exploring.


  1. I love listenign to the snow crunching under your feet. Thak you so much for showing us some tracking. I enjoy tracking but I find that not many people online are interested in it. Cool about your note! Nice fire, I'm going to have to get out more and practice that. Thanks so much for sharing your day with us.

  2. Thank you Rea, I appreciate your comments. The BushsclassUSA online course has a lot to offer and if you haven't checked it out, you should give it a try. It will give you a lot to practice and help to create some good adventure. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope to do a blog article on tracking one of these days. It is one of my favorite things when out in the wild.
