For many survival has become more than a hobby, it is a way of life. The survival industry is a vast and ever growing community built around developing self-reliance skills and reconnecting with nature. It is in this exciting pursuit many skills get overlooked and in some cases are underrated. The thought of rubbing two sticks together is exhilarating… “I am man, I have made fire!”
It carries this sense of accomplishment that I have not found in any other skill. Then there is building this mansion in the woods from only what nature provided. In comparison to our modern day homes it is nothing but some simple sticks put together to build a shelter, but that child like part of us sees an amazing fort capable of withstanding the weight of the world.
