Hey Michael great to see you wanting to get out there!
May I ask as to who you are watching and what are reading?
Reading random stuff on the net and my father's books from back when he got started tramping. On youtube i've been enjoying Joe Robinet, TA Outdoors, Black Stump NZ Bushcraft & Survival, Josh James. Pretty addicted to Alone and Kings of the Wild tv series too.
Seems like there aren't a lot of places here where fires are permitted which is a shame.
cool as, I watch those people aswell, might have to check out black stump nz bushcraft & survival though.
Yeah I started to watch Les Strouds Survivor man.
