Might make it easier to explain it to others. I still try to learn and use bushcraft, allthough I have come to dislike the term, since it has become so commercially abused and used by gearhoarders, knifemakers and -collectores and all kinds of groups vaguely related to the subject. Pitty realy....
And for me the bushcraft-idea or -principle goes much further than here stated. It effects the choice of lifestyle, material, mindset, etc.
“The process of remaining alive or in existence.”
“The process of carrying on despite hardships, trauma.”
“The act of perseverance or remaining functional or viable.”
“The act or fact of surviving, especially under adverse or unusual circumstances.”
“Skill in anything pertaining to bush country, as in finding one’s way, hunting or finding water.”
“Ability or experience in matters concerned with living in the bush.”
“Skills gained by, or necessary for, living in the bush.”
