In this video we talk about and demonstrate what I think are the top 5 Bushcraft knots you need to know: the Timber Hitch, the Clove Hitch, the Trucker’s Hitch, the Bowline, and the Sheet Bend. With these five knots you can make just about any camp project!
In this video I go over how to make a raised bed super shelter, or at least MY version of how to do it! This type of shelter is very comfortable and easy to build, and is a great way to spend a night in your bushcraft camp!
In this video we will look at the technique for starting a fire with flint and steel.

This is one survival skill that should be in every woodsman’s toolbox!
You can find the Flint and Steel set I used in the video HERE.
In this video we’ll go over the Pathfinder School Basic Class Equipment List, and what items I took with me for the Basic Survival class on October 12th through 14th, 2018.
