solo_travels "I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.” My thought process, upon quitting my big boy job, and leaping out on faith, 5 years ago today. 5d

eedengate Greenstones from the Keweenaw/Isle Royale. Teeny green memories. Let's throwback this Thursday to ruminating on a small rocky beach, searching by the waves for little guys like these almost as a form of meditation. #greenstones #keweenaw #PureMichigan #isleroyale #lakesuperior 2w

  •   eastcoastbushcraft My shovel sure saved my ass the other day! How much snow do you have up where you are? 2w
  •   blackwaterbushcraft @eastcoastbushcraft glad to hear! When I was Bushwhacking the snow was about chest deep in the worst areas. I'm 6'2. On average it was about 4 feet. Normally in those conditions I would have snowshoes but I walked off the packed snow sled trail to get a fire going as I was freezing to death 2w
  •   eastcoastbushcraft Same! I'm 6'2 also and we've got 3-4 feet up to five in some drifts. Fire has been essential for me, warm my hands and feet along with getting a nice hot drink and meal in me @blackwaterbushcraft 2w
  •   blackwaterbushcraft @big_belicoso no I don't use one, the 40oz is a pretty snug fit as is but I've seen the mug you are talking about before and I'm almost positive it will fit in the pocket with it. But that would definitely be maxing out the pocket 2w
  •   blackwaterbushcraft @eastcoastbushcraft we get a lot of snow eh! Ya I was well dressed but the wind was just way to much, I believe it was at least -40 here without the windchill. Believe me I was sure glad I have practiced my firecraft, as when it came down to ignition I realized I had left my torch at home and all I had was my ferro rod. In normal conditions all I need is my ferro rod, but when you can't feel your hands ha ha luckily I had a frozen can of chilli in my pack. I couldn't even see what I was eating the hot food was so steamy ha ha! Do you have any desperate situation stories? I love hearing people's survival stories! 2w
  •   big_belicoso That's what I needed to know, thanks @blackwaterbushcraft . 2w
  •   blackwaterbushcraft @big_belicoso I sent you a private msg 2w
  •   jayclay94 Definitely worth it to carry one... Good stuff 2w

marcusrefsland Wonder if a bear is sleeping away in this cave this winter? Would be a perfect place to sleep through a cold winter. 2w

crown.jules I found a memory card with over 300 pictures from #isleroyale that I completely forgot about! So I'll be posting so many of those, because it's not like that was in 2012 or anything... #backpacking #nature #nationalpark #sunset #lake #summer #camping #camp #scoutforth #neverstopexploring 3w
