This video describes my experience with traditional bedroll camping in the 1950s. I re-enact “outdoor skills and ethics” that I learned as a kid from my parents and grandparents. This early learning is supplemented with “outdoor and survival skills” from the Bushcraft YouTube Community.
Learn how to: 1) make a comfortable bedroll, 2) sleep under the stars without a shelter, 3) start a campfire with flint and steel, 4) make potato, onion and beef stew and 5) keep eggs fresh without refrigeration.

My cordura tarp (8×8 foot, mil spec coyote brown, 500d, urethane coated back, 6.5 oz per square yard) was custom-made by malcolm coderre, The Hidden Woodsmen gear line: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-hidden-woodsmen/218025328348162 . This tarp is currently only made in a smaller size.
