2 DAY SOLO BUSHCRAFT in an Enchanted Forest - Canvas Tent (MOSS FOREST CAMP)

  • Published on Jan 15, 2019
  • I go on a 2 day solo bushcraft camp in an enchanted moss covered forest. I setup my canvas tent (polish lavvu) by a small river and enjoy the amazing surrounding nature and wildlife. At night I get a camp fire going and cook soup. I go to sleep in the tent listening to the sound of owls and the flowing river nearby. The first part of the video has no talking as I wanted to immerse myself into this amazing enchanted forest.

    That is a beautiful place. I kept expecting to see elves, (or at least Graeme dressed as one) jump out from behind a tree. Good health and stay safe.

      Mike walks in the forest, a wood elf jumps out from behind a tree.
      Elf: "Human! You shall not pass!"
      Mike: "Whoa?!"
      Elf: "I won't let you destroy my beautiful forest!"
      Mike: "But I'd only build cabin out of pallet wood!"
      Elf: "Orly?"
      So the two proceed to build a lovely village out of pallet wood and they live there happily ever after.

    What a perfectly beautiful place. It has an ethereal quality that you’d find in a fairytale like Snow White. The rich aroma of earth, coupled with moss and the sound of the bubbling water must have been a wonderfully relaxing experience for you. You did a great job photographing the event . I especially liked the underwater shots.
    Great job!

    I know it's not purist but you should think about taking a backup fire lighting method. Cotton balls with Vaseline for example and a petrol lighter maybe? Just for the odd occasion when you're in the ancient woodland or any damp environment where fire lighting is difficult. Lovely film and great to see your connection with Mother Nature. Atvb, Michael

    Dude, lovely video. As an ex Londoner I can highly recommend Exeter (or there abouts) as a place to live. I moved to Cornwall 15 years ago to raise my kids and found it was just a bit too far out for us so we moved to Exeter where we have access to Dartmoor (legal wild camping a plenty), Exmoor, Exmouth beach for sunny days, kayaking, kiteSurfing etc and still have a lovely little city on our doorstep for all those commerce/schools/social type things.

    I've only been a subscriber to your channel for a short time but really enjoy your videos. This one in particular reminds me of my time in Vietnam in the early sixties. No fire of course. Build a fire and your dead. I love the outdoors and get in it as often as I can.
    I like the way you handle yourself in the forest. :-)

    The UK looks amazing. If you ever want some rugged country experience, come down to Northern California, and I’ll show you some places well off the beaten path. Different style of bushcraft here though.

    Just joined you yesterday. So the question I asked you about...popped up on my phone today. Thankyou...I will be catching up soon enough. I used to live growing up in the NW of the U.S. Oregon and Washington. The Olympia Forest is on Coastal Washington. A lot of the Park looks just like where you were at in January. I guess it depends how far West you want to go. Thankyou

    u knew ud be there for 2 days. Why didnt u keep a bunch of sticks in the tent for the night? Its warm there - theyd dry out more on top of not getting wetter with rain of condensation.

    Mike! New sub here. My gosh..the first 13 minutes I was thinking academy award! Absolutely stunning cinematography type shots! I was literally thinking Lord of the Rings in that whole sequence. Anyway, I look forward to catching up on the vids. I found you from watching Haze's vids. Quite the contrast but all great content! Craig..Minnesota US
