Greetings, fellow bloggers, Bushcrafters, backpackers, and outdoorsmen/women . My name is Jon, and in this blog I will be sharing with you my knowledge, outdoor experiences, reviews, and new things I learn along the way. I believe that there is never a point at which one can know everything there is to know about the wilderness – you are forever a student of the bush…as Horace Kephart once spoke, “In the school of the Woods, there is no graduation day.”
I am not paid by anyone to post, nor will I endorse products for the sole monetary benefit of a company. I will, however, give you my honest opinions, and do my best not to ramble :P.
It is my belief that Nature is the greatest Teacher of all…not cruel, “unforgiving”, nor a force which must be tamed. But She will unleash Her wrath upon those who underestimate Her power, venturing into Her realm ill-prepared and ill-mannered. Yet She may spare the fool, if the person is quick to adapt to the situation, put aside their ego, and learn. She is the Mother of the Primitive folk, tribal peoples who have lived in Her domain for years untold, and lover of he/she who respects Her and nurtures Her realm, ever willing to learn more, always with an open heart and mind.
