I'm doing a giveaway on my blog that I think might interest people.  Two articles coming up talk about the Madrone tree (Arbutus menziesii) and proper technique for using a firesteel.  

So I am giving away a hand-made (not by me) Madrone Burl firesteel.  

The random drawing is for Bushcraft Newsletter subscribers.  So you do need to subscribe to the free Bushcraft Newsletter to participate.  Everyone is welcome to enter.  But because of my limited budget, I can only ship the prize to addresses in the United States.  

The winner will be announced August 30.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
It's time for another giveaway! Why? Because it's fun! When I do a giveaway, I try to link it to articles appearing on the site. This month we will talk about one of my favorite trees: the Madrone (Arbutus menziesii). It's a fascinating tree and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

I love the cool temperatures that we have had on the trip here in New England! I awoke to 45 degrees, and it was a great way to start the day." ~ Werewolf

Identifying wild edibles can be intimidating.  It’s natural (and reasonable) to feel apprehensive when you’re starting out.

This easy project teaches you how to make a yummy dessert using a plant found in many household gardens.  You will have a chance to practice using plants for food, without the need to make complex plant identifications or learn special processing techniques.

Seems like common sense, but nonetheless they are all good reminders for when out hiking!
http://www.cleverhiker.com/blog/top-12-beginner-backpacking-blunders
If you’ve spent any time in the woods, you’ve probably made some epic backcountry blunders. I certainly have. In fact, the only reason I’m able to give any “clever” hiking advice is because of all the laughably bad mistakes I’ve made over the years. At one point or another I’ve fallen victim to every one of the blunders listed below (and then some!).
