6 days solo bushcraft – canvas lavvu, bow drill, spoon carving, Finnish axe

6 days alone on the west coast of Denmark – two camps in the forest and one in the open land. Open the full video description for more information.

_________________

Location: Denmark – previous viking country. West coast of Jutland – sand, big sea, spruce and pine forrest. Some of the most remote in Denmark, but a lot of people in Denmark so limited how remote it can get. A lot of birds and deer. No bears only a few wolves – nothing dangerous for campers. If you want to do the same in Denmark do you need to be the owner or get the owners permission.

Consuming: Water, spruce and pine tea, hot chocolate. Chicken and cow.

Some of the most asked questions:

1.Where did you get the food?
Bought before the trip and brought along.

2. How does the meat not spoil?
It is the cold season. I do nothing, just keep it in the backpack. Most meat stay safe to eat for at least a week here doing the cold season.

3. Who is recording?
I am alone and just recording myself. One camera on a tripod I move around and 10 spare camera batteries.

4. How heavy is the backpack?
About 25 kilos including the food and camera gear.

5. What kind of stick did you use to make fire?
Ferro rod.

6. What about predators?
No problem, nobody need to take any precautions here. No bears, only a few wolfs. You can risk that a fox or a bird take your food – but haven’t happened to me yet on this location.

7. What knife and axe are you using?
Homemade puukko knife, mora 106 carving knife, unknown finnish collared axe, homemade carving axe.

8. Who made the sweater?
Unknown, just from a local thrift shop.

9. Why make a wall next to the fire?
Reflects some heat from the fire back to you and shelter the fire a bit from wind. One of the common names for it is “fire reflector”.
