Long Term Survival - A Bushcraft Shelter Part 1

Camping has been a lifelong activity with me. From my early years camping with my folks, my teen years doing it with friends, to my adult life taking the family out. Everything from travel trailers, campers, hammocks and tents. So it is no great surprise that I have an interest in Bushcraft and the outdoors.

I consider Bushcraft a form of "Camping Lite", utilizing skills to create your comfort in the wilderness rather than lugging along a bunch of stuff (which I still enjoy doing). Of course, YouTube is full of videos produced by those who practice various forms of Bushcraft. Some are almost laughable, while others are very informative.

Now some of you may wonder why you would ever need these skills. I suggest you watch the movie "Defiance", and place it in a modern context, where you are the ones fleeing persecution for your race or beliefs. When you have nothing but the most basic of tools, the knowledge of how to make your life more comfortable is invaluable.

I present here, a series of videos that I consider to be well done on the subject of Bushcraft. It is a long series, which I will split into several parts.

Enjoy!
