According to Wikipedia “Bushcraft is about thriving in the natural environment, and the acquisition of the skills and knowledge to do so.

This website is devoted to our explorations and will also include some educational blogs about wilderness survival. To spice it up even more, we will have some fly fishing videos, and maybe a few falconry videos as time goes on!
