In what may turn out to be a regular feature I thought I’d add a few links to some interesting bushcraft and wilderness skills articles and videos I’ve found lately.
Rebecca Lerner writes some great stuff about wild food and medicinal plant uses. She just used hawthorn to treat a heart arrhythmia in her dog Petunia
Robin at Eat Weeds brought us his rather delicious looking alexanders chutney
A little ago back Bryan at PaddlingLight recommended 5 Canoe and Kayak Books to Read in 2012
Paul Kirtley at Frontier Bushcraft showed us his Wilderness Canoeing: Personal Bushcraft & Survival Kit
Gary at Bearclaw/Survivall/Nordmarken Canoe UK/Weiss (Gary’s a busy man these days!) is thinking along good lines with his back to basics One blanket and a frosty weekend
Another great video from WinterTrekker on YouTube. Here he shows us the key points of his ski-hauled toboggan setup. As ever he’s got some good ice safety tips.

John Mac’s been busy with spoon carving and making charcloth and trying his hand at flint and steel firelighting
Francois at Francois’ Birchbark canoes doesn’t say much but he’s still making birch bark canoes like this 14 foot Algonquin. Nice.
If you follow Skills For Wild Lives on Google Plus you’ll have already seen this video. A tour round the Gränsfors Bruks factory. Interesting. Even though alot of the factory’s rather quiet.
