    Hi all,

    About 8 years ago I moved from the city to live in a remote area (with only 5 houses) and sort of fell into 'bushcraft', adapting to a new lifestyle, where I had to build a fire if I wanted hot water, grow my own food & do a lot of running repairs! There is literally miles & miles of wilderness to explore here & the more exploring I did the more I learn about the environment around me & started to become 'one' with nature!

    I'm learning more & more bushcraft skills all the time & I hope you guys can impart some of your wisdom on me & help me to hone my skills!

    Me neither, tried that, made good money, but only realised what i'd really been missing when i gave it up and went to live in the country. Money and status means nothing really

    Hi Bob, welcome!
    I am very intrigued about your change from city to wilderness! What kind of house do you live in? Have you moved away from working 9-5 completly?

    Good times!
