Bushcraft trip - hot tent, gathering chaga and berries, making a cutting board, reindeer skin etc.

I am carving a cutting board, sleeping in a tent with a wood stove, cooking two meals, gathering tea and berries, making fire wood etc. Open the full video description for more information. ---------------------------- Date: September 2021 Day: 8°C to 20°C (46.4-68°F) Night: -2°C to 8°C (28.4-46.4°F) Location: Sweden. Clean and classic northern nature. Fresh water rivers. Pine, spruce and birch forest etc. Mountains, bears, wolves, eagles, reindeers etc. You need to take some care regarding animals, but in general no problems. _________________ Consuming: Water, spruce tea, chaga tea. Beef, potatoes, onions, garlic, chili, salt and cheese. Oats, water, salt, black crowberry and cranberries. _________________ A few questions: 1. What tent and stove did you use? Tschum 2P Light SOSWA https://tschum.de/product_info.php?info=p33_tschum-2p-light-soswa.html and Poshehonka Stove Set S basis version https://tschum.de/product_info.php?info=p68_poshehonka-stove-set-s---basis-version.html 2. What sleeping gear did you use? Reindeer skin and a homemade thick wool cover combined with a normal down sleeping bag. 3. What axe and knife are you using? Both are homemade. The axe is one of the most common designs from the viking age. Ash handle, birch bark sheath, modern mild steel body with asymmetric forge welded eye and forge welded spring steel edge. The knife is spring steel, birch burl handle and birch bark sheath with a wooden inlay made from ash. The knife shape is just the common traditional design from my part of the world - if you look at old examples of Puukko knifes and Yakut knifes, can you see similar knifes. Both tools, the axe and the knife, are made for crafting and just daily life tasks. 4. Why not make the cutting board bigger and why add the cord? I wanted to keep it small, so it is easy to bring along on future bushcraft trips. As small as possible, but of course big enough to still be use full. The cord makes me able to hang it up on example tress to keep it away from dirt. 5. Was it chaga you gathert from the birch tree? Yes. Chaga is a fungus mainly used for tea and tinder for fire lighting (flint and steel). Chaga grows on damaged birch trees and chaga is common to find in the north. In this case did a make tea - a lot of ways to do it. I personally prefer to use big pieces of chaga and heat it for about 20 minutes (until the water gets brown/dark brown). The bigger pieces takes longer, but you are able to dry and reuse the chaga a few times, 4 times give or take and the reused chaga start to lose too much of it's taste. If you make chaga into powder is the tea ready right away. 6. How long did you stay? I stayed a few days at this campsite. I am staying in Sweden for 8 weeks give or take. I have borrowed a friends cabin - some of the time am I in the cabin and some of the time am I out on bushcraft trips. 7. Will you make more blacksmithing videos? Yes - when I get back home again to Denmark, will I record more blacksmithing videos... I need to make a few axes, a frying pan, a knife and a few other things. But before I uploade new blacksmithing videos, will I probably first uploade a few more bushcraft trip videos from this trip to Sweden. _________________ Some of the gear used in the video: 1.
