Bushcraft time out – snow, tipi, pine tea, desert, reindeer skins, cooking meat and so forth.
Day 2 on a overnight trip. I finish building a tipi, enjoy the beauty of last nights snowfall and do primitive cooking. Open the full video description for more information.

Location: Sapmi - the land of the Sami people in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Clean and remote classic northern wilderness. Fresh water rivers. Pine, spruce and birch forrest. Mountains, bears, wolves, eagles, reindeers etc. No dangerous wildlife is in general giving campers problems. I can"t give you any information about my location, only that I am somewhere in Sapmi. You need to be the owner or get the owners permission if you want to do the same in Sapmi.
Consuming: Water and pine tea. Meat (cow).
A few questions:
1. Is reindeer skins warm enough?
Yes - absolutely. It is some of the best. Native people in some of the coldest areas of the world, such as Inuit and Sami, used reindeer fur for the warmest winter gear - coats, boots and sleeping bag etc.
2. Is the water safe?
Yes - Sapmi is clean and remote nature.
7. Why add wood on the outside on the tipi?
It helps preventing the moss from falling down.
8. Is the shoes waterproof?
Yes - or just the same as common leather boots. Keeps a lot of water out - but only if they are well made and you take care of the leather.
