Bushcraft is the name I give to the technologies that our ancestors used before metals came into common use.  It’s a separate subject to “survival” and it’s all about getting the most out of nature.  In its most pure form it’s the ultimate test for the experienced mountain man or woman.  But there’s no need to dive straight into the deep end, importantly there are lots of elements of bushcraft we can lift out and use on our routine camping and wilderness travel.  I’ll show you some useful bit of Bushcraft in the margins of most of my multi day tours but come along to one of my specific Bushcraft packages and you will get a whole bunch of skills that I guarantee you will enjoy using again and again.
