We recently received some feedback (let’s call it that for the purposes of this entry), from an individual who wished to point out that what we post online (and what he believes we are attempting to portray ourselves as), directly conflicts with his preconception of “bushcraft”.
Now, let’s agree that not everyone agrees on the definition of “living” (especially in the bush/backcountry). Does “living” in the bush have a literal meaning and a start and end date? Must one live uncomfortably to adhere to an ideal? What “skills” are measured to assess one’s capabilities in the backcountry and how? Is there a minimum amount of gear to take with you to guarantee you can live sustainably? Is it six, or maybe only three pieces of equipment/gear that can assist you in “living” comfortably in the woods?
Recently, I was tapped by a friend on our Instagram feed to elaborate on #3bushskills that I’ve learned over the last few years. I thought about it a bit, and finally decided on three things that are of great importance while traversing pretty much any terrain in the World. Not all may be atypically associated with the idea of “bushcraft”, but they are definitely three things that I have come to value for their importance while in the backcountry. They have also been learned by me through experience (sometimes without mercy.)
I’m hoping to make this a multi-part entry, as there is still so much to be learned and outdoor skills can’t possibly be summed-up into only three sub-categories.
Artistic growth is, more than it is anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness. The stupid believe that to be truthful is easy; only the artist, the great artist, knows how difficult it is. Every child is an artist. the challenge is to remain an artist once he grows up. saturday found him for the first time strolling alone through zurich, breathing in the heady smell of his freedom. new adventures hid around each corner. The future was again a secret.
Freedom lies in being bold. when i get a little money, i buy books; and, if any is left, i buy food and clothes. it’s strange that words are so inadequate. yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words. in our struggle for freedom, truth is the only weapon we possess. if you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people. the feeling of sunday is the same everywhere: heavy, melancholy, standing still. like when they say, ‘as it was in the beginning.

All art is quite useless. one can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar. words do not express thoughts very well. they always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish.
