Born and raised in the prairies on a farm.
camping and fishing exploring
spent a couple summers in Kelowna BC with cousins and returned to stay and explore.
Early on in my backwoods hikes and bike rides and ski snowboard trips how ill-prepared I really was and th at is what made me really start seeking out people and books and gear and make it one of my new many hobbies.
good skills come from practice going on a family and friends campout as a bug out practice can help learn what is really needed and what is not practical or useful
