Survival. Everyone has watched those shows on TV and have thought about what it would be like to survive in the woods. I like to take it one step further and decided to embark on a solo survival adventure. Alone on Vancouver Island, I test my survival skills built upon a knowledge base of bushcraft and camping. Bringing only a large knife and a ferro rod, as well as camera gear and a backpack, I set out to see what I can do alone in the wild.

Thank you so much for giving us this video and for sharing your belief in Christ! In this climate you not only have a person doing things some of civilisation goes against, but you also have someone who believes in Our Saviour, you're blessed man - and even when they come to persecute you, whether they try to make you given in to their programs and doctrines, hurl verbal abuse at your love, whether they even plot to kill, remember what you said here and put your faith and trust in God! He also finds a way, whether that's today or the next blue moon. Be blessed!
are you from the southern us? that garbage country music is poisoning the beautiful pnw (country music originate in the southern us)

He's just sharing his beliefs mate! He's given us tens of minutes of content, a small section sharing his beliefs in Christ shouldn't deter you from the rest of what he does! Be blessed!

Would have been safer and easier to tie a vertical branch to the many trees that are surrounding you for the shelter? As oppose to sticking the support branches into the ground and support them with rocks??

Will it be a coincidence that in recent times we have seen so many videos on how to survive alone in such primitive conditions? Just to coincide with this global pandemic. I am not saying that it is all a conspiracy and that you know that sooner or later it will end badly, but only that it is a strange coincidence ......

First you dont make camp where there is no water. 2) all the fern you cut down has hundreds of potatoes. 3) all the pine needles you swept away is bedding and insulation......

def dont want to use dry or rotting wood for your shelter, if it rains or gets windy this thing will most likely collapse. live cut saplings work best. and for the rocks, be careful introducing rocks from a creek bed to the fire like this, many will explode as the moisture inside gets hot and expands before it can dry or escape.

The best part of the video was you washing in the creek and started playing the only music in the video over the sound of the water, that was great. Bush craft score 10 Picking music over the tranquil sound of water running over rocks score 00. Great video on bush craft man, you got survival skills. Thanks for the vid :)

If I had these skills I would be camping up a tree not on the ground, ide find two trees close enough together and create a shelter at a secure height, a lot of labor but worth the peace of mind something cant just reach me

Eddie Menes, If you'd worry about predators, there are only two large ones, other than man, on Vancouver Island. Bears and cougars are both excellent climbers. One should cultivate knowledge of any wilderness they intend to enter.

Nice to hear you share about faith. For me, fear is the absence of faith, and without a belief of and trust in a power greater than myself, I would be paralyzed. Wish I had the where with all to get out there and use my self taught bushcraft skills, but maybe one day soon. Thanks.

I go out in the woods all the time with no fear. I see no need to have an imaginary friend. I have the brains to bring a hook and line with me instead of stupidly destroying my boot lace for no good reason except lack of foresight and planning. Go and see if your faith in Gods who cant write a book without contradicting themselves over and over again, will stop you from getting Covid 19. The 3 Gods of the Abrahamic cults all bow down to disease and fade away into the past with every scientific advancement. You have not been intellectually honest enough with yourself to overcome your childhood indoctrination and brainwashing. I figured it out when I was 12 years old. Grow up

Faith and belief is paramount both are in your head and heart. You must talk to your supreme person mine was God. A year ago I set off on a journey with $50 AUD in the bank and $20 in my pocket and walked from the Queensland Gold Coast to Ballina N.S.W. Pulling behind me a suit case and the strongest belief I would be OK and I was and had some amazing experiences along the way. I NEVER felt in danger.... and felt the support along the way.

To be in those woods with little audible evidence of others...is more than peaceful its a rare cathedral. The adage of god helps those who help themselves seems apt here. Your confidence brims from knowledge gained previously and that you can survey the resources available and marshal your wit to make a go of it. And you get great satisfaction at creating a shelter, finding water, and almost something to eat. Nice.

Thanks for the video i was worried about the safety of your shelter, unsafe cutting wood (glad you did not cut your leg) very nice area to camp.

I read many viewers praising this guy, but why? Everything that he's done, has been done over and over again. He's kind of stupid for going out into the woods without food and water just to show us (AGAIN) that it's possible. He's tough, I get it...whoop di doo!!! So are all the survivalists on the other channels.

Salamanders are mildly poisonous. Newts are HIGHLY poisonous and should never be touched. They have been known to kill within a matter of hours from someone just licking one on a dare. Good job using a stick and not your hands to touch it.
