Principles of Bushcraft

Learning bushcraft skills allows us to live off the land naturally, travel light, and survive most terrain when equipment is scarce or not available. Even if we are not in a survival situation, bushcraft skills provide a profound way of connecting with our ancestors and allowing us to revive our link with the earth. In fact, bushcraft skills are really earth-living skills, managing without modern tools or aids. 

Acquiring these skills requires diligent practice and maintenance, but once learned they open up a world of possibilities. Most importantly, these kills belong to anyone and have been passed on by those who travelled the wilderness trails before us. They should be preserved intact for the next generation.
