Pushing the perimeter of my comfort zone a little further everyday is my objective. The un-comfort zone is where we learn what we’re made of. I got a little uncomfortable with a bushcraft overnighter this past weekend. Not that a simple bushcraft overnighter in the wild can tell us a ton, it is after all just a night. You will indeed always learn something if you have an open mind though. You’d be surprised how quick things can turn to shit when making deals with mother nature. Our Warrior Tribe is all about identifying our weaknesses through training challenges that are designed to make us uncomfortable.

Some weeks we work on fitness, and push the limits of our body. Other times we work on bushcrafting skill sets to refresh our primitive roots. Some weeks we work on combatives tactics, other days we’re training our firearms fundamentals. All with the primary objective to enhance our preparedness in all aspects. This week was no different. The training challenge was simple. Complete a overnighter in the bush with one survival item of our choice, one bottle of water, and the clothes on our back.

I chose my trusty Gerber Strongarm for my one item. I knew fire was my priority, and I wanted to intentionally make that aspect harder by bringing a knife instead of a firestarter.

If you brought a tarp you’d want to spend your time working on fire. If you brought a lighter you’d want to spend your time working on shelter building, or trapping, or wild edibles, etc. All of our training challenges vary week after week, month after month.

I decided to take this time to experiment with some bushcraft “vlogging” so to speak. A little different than my normal content. I shot this video as a test to see if you guys would be interested in seeing more content like this. So check out the video above, and below here are some nature shots I managed to snag earlier in the day. Let me know if you like this kind of content? What else would you like to see?
