I'm learning a lot of that at "Dirt Time" in Wyoming this week. It's a primitive survival skills campout and workshop. Today's classes included identifying wild plants, tracking, making an atlatl, and making a fire with hand-drill and bow-drill techniques. We've also brain tanned fox hides, learned wilderness first aid, helped set up a 27' tall tipi, learned how to make a primitive forge, learned what should go into a survival kit (as part of a BOB); and tomorrow we'll learn knots, knife making, and other things. We've also had the opportunity to make a bow from Serviceberry and arrows from willow, and bowls and dishes from gourds. There's more to come this week, and when I get home I'll write up a full report of what we learned.
