    I've been personally cataloguing bushcraft and survival skills that I already know or would like to learn. It would be awesome if everyone could list some skills that are essential to mastering bushcraft and survival or perhaps some that an amateur such as myself wouldn't have even thought of or...

    Hi all! I am still fairly new here so please forgive me if this in the wrong section. I think I have the right section :) I have just moved to North Dakota (right on the MN border) from Colorado a little over a year ago and I need some help finding camping sites/areas. I was wondering if anyone...

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, if not I hope the admins will put it where it belongs. To make a long story short I'm a college student from Arizona who wants to go on a little camping trip in my new home state. The problem is, I don't know anything about camping in this...

    Well, tis' time for me to step out of the nest and put my gear to work. The "personal" situation that's been keeping me from heading out is working itself out and I'll have the state of mind now to be able to enjoy my time alone when I do head out. Up until now, I've been practicing my...

    Managed to have a little overnighter over the Chrissy break. It wasnt nearly as much time as i was planning, but with a young family i'll take what i can get. Me and a mate (lets call him J) decided we'd take a quick canoe trip down the Pallinup River which is about an hours drive east of...

    I'm graduating from high school this year, and I've been planning various trips for the summer. One of the trips that I've been bopping around in my mind is spending a few weeks in the woods living with as little in the way of tools and resources as possible. What advice do you experts have on...

    Okay this occurred to me as lots of folks, including me, have been mentioning that you need to learn more bushcraft skills to be able to lighten your load. So I created this thread so that we may be able to identify all the items that we do not need to carry around with us, as we replace them...

    I've read a lot of people here talking about using wool blankets for a sleeping system instead of a sleeping bag, I'm just wondering what the reason for that could possibly be. I'd take an army four piece sleeping system over blanket any day. Blankets are less warm, heavier, bigger.

    My initial plan was to get a USGI Sleeping Pad. But, after hearing the raves on Thermarest and self-inflating pads, I'm open to any other suggestions.

    After being inspired by Twiggy's EWLS system. I re-examined my requirements and realized that I have been doing dirt time for 2 and 3 days at a time, and would usually just mix and match my gear for whatever I was planning to do. What I am attempting to make is to create a base pack that would...

    I bought a doublenest hammock a few months back, and am now looking for a bug net to go with it. I am aware that ENO makes tarps and bug nets to go with their hammocks (I have an ENO tarp in my cart on amazon) but it is around $60.00. I would rather NOT spend another $50.00ish on a bug net, so i...

    I found a 3pc E.C.W.S. sleeping bag set for a price that I cannot pass up. This particular one says "created especially for civilian use--imported". Are all genuine ecws sleeping bags made in America? If this one is a knock-off, what drawbacks will it have compared to the real military ones...

    Its simple choose one or the other in the Poll then explain why below. Granted there are many other options aside from tents so I will add "Other" to the list as well. For me I chose hammock because I like the versatility of it. I tend to backpack in the mountains more than flat-lands so a...
