Bushwhacking

Skills 101: Bushwhacking

Bushwhacking Hot Tenting with Kifaru 6-man tipi.

Did some winter bushwhacking and camping with my Kifaru EMR during the Nor Easter known as Hercules. The temps were unusually cold, hitting new record lows. The wind wasn't any fun either. I used a Mora #2 knife, charred cedar bark and rock to start a fire. Tested out some new kit including the Exped Schnozzel pump bag, Long/wide Ridgerest and Ti bowl/pot grabber combo. All the tested gear preformed as expected.

I used a DIY stove to heat the Kifaru 6-man tipi. It was maybe a little under powered for the larger shelter in cooler temps but worked. The shelter was generally warm and comfortable.

How to enjoy Bushwhacking

Here is 5 minutes and 20 slides on the sport of bushwhacking around Maryland. I talk about Masonville Cove, Leakin Park, Harpers Ferry, Indian Springs and a nasty bald eagle in Linthicum. I make few references on how I use my trusty GPS and Google Earth to find neat stuff in the woods.

Winter bushwhacking with Kifaru Paratipi, EMR and E&E.

A winter MBO using my Kifaru Paratipi with small stove, EMR and E&E. I took the E&E to scrounge for bushcrafty teas, wood, tinder and fishing with improvised gear. Used my Kahtoola micro spikes to keep from slipping. Field testing of the Roselli Axe. Spent too much time at a daycamp so had hike and setup my Paratipi in the dark.There are 3 other videos of tools and firecraft used during this trip uploaded to Youtube.

Wild Boar GNCC (Florida) Ep.4 [Slippery Bushwhacking and Crashing]

This is the final episode of my 2017 GNCC experience. Unfortunately, the GoPro and its face mount fell off when I face planted in the mud, so there's no more footage; however, I did manage to finish the race and get carsick on the 3 hour drive home...

Six days winter camping... solo

I spend six days in mid January 2016 winter camping hot tenting in the Adirondacks. Two days were devoted to travel; getting to and setting up camp then breaking camp and returning home. The other four days I ice fish, bushwhack/ski, process wood, and hunt; mostly I just enjoy the solitude that only winter can provide.

Kayaking Downtown -- Bushwhacking

This kayak journey was an attempt to get to the San Jose Airport vicinity from Alviso Marina, via the Alviso Slough and the Guadalupe River. We didn't make it, but got closer than our previous attempt.

In this clip you can see how dense the reeds get in places.
