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.

    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. :-)

    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

    Quick question, what's the outer shell layer you're wearing? Reminds me of the Fjallraven Raven jacket, but hooded and thicker.

    Don't know about you mike but when lighting tinder with a flint and steel I find it useful to pin the tinder down using the flint and strike directly onto the tinder. This way you get sparks right inside the tinder and it helps hold it all steady. Give it a try.

  • Vojta Mašek

    Truly lovely place, one night there definitely isn't enough, nothing beats falling asleep listening to the sound of running water!
    And great tent! Maybe because I spent most of my nights outdoors with a canvas tarps when I was a teenager I'm rather partial to them. A bit bulkier, yes, but I love that robust feel. And when they soak up some smoke from the fire...love that smell!
    In closing, one final question: what is the knive you're using? :)

    I do not know if you read comments on your videos, possibly you do. I just want to say what a great video. You're skills taught through this media, as-well as sharing with others the beauty of the out doors that we all just do not appreciate enough, is right there for us all if we wish to get away from our comfort zones. I just want to say I appreciate your videos, glad I subscribed, the odd updates from your videos are always a nice change of pace to watch from a long day in the 24/7 world we all revolve within. Keep up the videos, I hope to one day spend more time in places such as this, what this earth gives us and we walk past.
