    One of the things I like about learning to live primitively is the independence it offers. If a person can live without anything, then they are dependent upon nothing.

    Yeah.
    I like learning about nature, too.

    Love this shit.

    I'm probably going to end up living in the woods alone or with someone.

    if I could find a beautiful place to live where this wasn't illegal, and had some friends to join me, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I tried living wild when I first moved to colorado but its illegal. I mean you can hide from the rangers and be sneaky about it, but even then that's something I don't want to have to worry about. Otherwise I spent 3 weeks on an expedition in the olympic mountains, and it was the most amazing experience of my life. I make enough money off of passive income to buy food from a grocery store each month, but not enough to live a city life. I'm not a hippie, I'm a nomad. The difference is that one is a badass and one is lazy as fuck. And finding a girlfriend who also wants to be a "nomad" is quite a difficult challenge.

    I decided that the perfect lifestyle would be 1 week in the wilderness, 1 week in civilization, on off. Perhaps I'll start looking into some mountain climbing meetup groups or something.

    Living wild permanently would be fun! I don't know if I can think of anything more awesome than three weeks in the Olympics!

    My observation is that the longest trips tend to be with backpacking meetup groups or clubs.

    Not educated on / into bushcraft and survival per se, but, find it very interesting. Also think it would be invaluable in many outdoor situations, most especially when unexpected things occur and survival does become a very real thing. I've backpacked/camped quite a lot, snow-shoed, done extensive hiking, and it definitely occurs to me off and on that that's all fine and dandy IF nothing bad happens (i.e. I have the food and tent, water filter, whatnot, for the X days that are planned), but if something unexpected does occur, supplies are destroyed or injury occurs or end up having to stay longer than planned, having additional knowledge could be difference between life and death. Though, typically I'm in areas with enough traffic (ie at least one or two hikers coming through each day) that pure raw survival isn't as much of a concern.

    Cool. I found 1)the random wildlife (boar?) ambling through the site, and 2) the different properties (level of heat) between the birch bark vs. the lichen very interesting.

    I'd call all of the stuff you do bushcraft. You just didn't label it before you did it. Nature study and awareness is a big part of bushcraft too, and I know you've got that down well.

    I think that may have been a reindeer calf? That was my initial impression without watching it again. Ha ha, thanks, I missed that about birch bark vs. lichen.
