Joel Buhia is a simple and passionate outdoor adventurer. Since the age of 4, he's been bonding with natue and educating himself about Bushcraft and Survival. Here is a brief Q&A between OneTigris and this adventurer:
THINGS YOU SHOULD CARRY ON YOU WHILE CAMPING
"The ultimate gear required in the great outdoors is a KNIFE". A knife can help a person survive the wild outdoors. But for the modern outdoor men and women, what you need is simply to put together a survive kit... Some ideas: - Haversack or Backpack - Knife - Shelter (Tarp is best!) - Cooking Kit & Stainless Water Bottle) - Fire Kit - Navigation Kit - First Aid Kit - Signaling Kit (S.O.S. Kit) - Cordage (Bank lines or Paracord) - Bandana - Proper Outdoor Clothings Ultimate Requirements: - Knowledge & Experience.
WE NEED CAMPING, NO MORE EXCUSES!
For Joel camping is a state of mind. It's a great opportunity for the busy and weary to sit back, relax and enjoy the peaceful moment in the wild outdoors. A simple way of switching off all walks of life in the modern world and get back to basics. Listening to the sound of nature calms you down from within and the benefits of being outside and living life to the fullest is seriously unmatched. We all need to find time to go into the wild. No more excuses.
BASIC ADVICES FOR ANY ADVENTUROUS MINDS
1. Locate the ideal campsite, safe campsite, basic resources around the campsite (ex. Fresh water source and wild edibles).
2. Study the campsite that you are going to be in by simply doing some research or by simply asking the country park management centre and the people who have been there.
3. Know your capabilities, limits and also your personal gear.
4. Awareness on personal hygiene.
5. Basic knowledge of Wildlife and safety. For example: Basic camp setups, rules in your country parks and the season, how to use navigation equipments, etc.
6. Be prepared for the unexpected and know how to get out of the situation in a calm and systematic way.
7. Beginners should never venture the wild solo. Having a companion with good orientation skills is necessary.
Many thanks to Joel! Now, are YOU ready to go into the wild?
