Primitive Skills Class

Briar Patch Outdoors is hosting a Primitive Skills Class at the end of this month (8/18-25) up in Michigan.

I've made plans to attend. I have childcare lined up, my schedule is cleared, and I'm setting aside the basic gear I intend to bring along.

My personal rule is to exclude any gear that won't fit inside a single 5-gallon bucket. So far I'm taking a tarp, a knife (to be determined,) my Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet, a Snowpeak 3-piece cookset/mess kit, two Nalgene bottles and purification tabs, and a big box of Texas Flint for knapping. Oh, I'll also bring along the camera, a notebook, a couple of pencils, a rain coat, and a toothbrush.

Going light is tough when there's so much cool gear to take out and test/review...

Thanks for reading,
