Video: Winter Campsite Prep: Wood Supply and Spruce Boughs
« on: February 13, 2018, 09:17:54 pm »
Hi folks!  This is a video of a scouting day-trip ("recce") to an old winter campsite of mine, to prepare resources for a future winter base camp.  Nothing exciting, the "usual" mundane stuff:  trail pack, firewood collection, and spruce bough collection. This site was hit by a windstorm and there are several blown down black spruce with green limbs, which are going to die anyways, so might as well use them.

Some narration on my clothing system, which has not changed for many years - I find it works  ;)

My former firewood cache was knocked down and pinned under blowdown, so I collected more poles and stacked them to stay dry and shed snow and rain. I hope to get out to use this site soon.

"I firmly believe that far from hurting the planet, the growing knowledge of Bushcraft is helping our natural world. When we employ bushcraft skills, it may seem as though we are consuming natural resources.  But of course, the more we learn about the trees, the plants, the animals around us, the more we respect them. The more we respect them, the more we cherish them, the more we nurture and take care of them. That is the underlying principle of Bushcraft.
