I would love to go to a real old-fashioned rendezvous or something like that and see and feel and taste the old ways. I have too much to learn & may never put a lot of it to use, but it's always good stuff to know. I guess if we can't go to a real gathering, the best we can do for now is read about it here.
So with that, I'll be following this thread. I know some of you know some really cool stuff that you like to share. I'd like to learn some of that.

 The Backwoodsman Magazine is a great resource if any one hasn't checked it out. They also have three best of volumes of articles from past issues.

Tagging along... I taught at a Survival School for many years and am always interested in these topics.

Yup - been reading it for years. I really like it. Wish I had all the volumes like I do Mother Earth News & Backwoods Home Magazine on CD ROM.

That's how I got out of going to prom, senior year in high school. Mandatory snow cave field trip with the Mountaineers. Dates just happened to coincide. Saved a bunch of money and had twice the fun.

so here is my thoughts for the thread, or at least some Ideas. I would like to discuss things such as primitive tanning and animal processing including food preservation.
Methods of building different types of structures
redneck engineering kinds of stuff.
If anyone has done projects like these and has pictures and instructions or tips on how to do things, post them up.

That would be based on your discretion. Would be kind of cool to start a whole new section based of field craft. Then people could start threads on tanning, threads on different types of shelters, separate threads for trapping for food, and the like. Maybe under the Other activities section with the trapping and Other outdoor adventures but as its own section in that category

There are several ways to skin this cat (and all cats for that matter). I have one way I've been tanning hides for years that works nice. I'd be more than happy to start this one. Are you planning on getting a separate community as stated or are we starting the post right here?

One caution while talking about survival... there are several ways to do things and all should be discussed; there is no right or wrong way to survive, only that you lived or died and all the misery or happiness in between. Some folks will have easier ways to accomplish projects and some will have "their way" to accomplish the same project. Survival is different from the east coast to the west coast and from the spring through the fall. There are adaptations to every technique even between morning and evening, spring and fall, elevation, and personal agenda.  :twocents:

Really looking forward to the discussions
