Bushcraft in a single day – refuge building, plump wood, bacon, russian axe, repairing sweater
Making a survival shelter with indoor fireplace on a solo overnight. Open the full video description for more information.
Location: Denmark - previous viking country. West coast of Jutland - sand, big sea, spruce and pine forrest. Some of the most remote in Denmark, but a lot of people in Denmark so limited how remote it can get. A lot of birds and deer. No bears only a few wolves - nothing dangerous for campers. If you want to do the same in Denmark do you need to be the owner or get the owners permission.
Consuming: Water. Pig and cow.
Most asked questions:
1. Is it safe to use fire inside the shelter?
Yes. Just keep the fire small and relative spark free. Take more precautions if it is a dry period or add water to the moss making it harder to ignite by mistake. Smoke is not a problem, just don"t stand up inside the shelter.
2. Is the shelter water proof?
No, but well enough to keep dry if it just is short heavy rain or a bit of rain on and off for a few days in a row.
