Primitive and modern outdoor skills

Link farm


Been doing some primitive skills reading lately so I thought I'd share. - A well written blog by the guy who taught me how to make ghillie shoes. Lots about gypsy caravans, shoes and just general neat stuff.

Two interesting sites I found from his blog: - A collection of articles on how to do almost anything. Seriously, webpage design to nut oil extraction to livestock management. You name it, it's probably there. - A blog by a lady in Oregon who does a lot of gathering - Woods to use for friction fires in the bay area. I managed to get smoke with a hand drill from buckeye on buckeye last weekend. It's an impressive wood. I got a little closer with buckeye on saguaro, but that'd be hard to find without a long drive.
