    Quality of life in the outdoors shows how much a person is not only familiar with materials in their own environment, but how a person can be comfortable, thus enjoying themselves a little more than the average Joe. These camp furnishings are all simple and were made with cordage (twine, bankline, zip-ties), saw, machete, tomahawk, Swiss Army Knife.

    Post them up and tell what materials were used.


    Alabama Lean-To camp
    Pine, sweet gum.

    Camp chair
    Used witch hazel, maple and beech. Jute twine was used, but it was an epic failure. Most was replaced with bankline.

    Table/Work bench
    Spend enough time in the woods and you will come to appreciate a flat surface to put things. Place gear at a level to not have to bend as much, etc.!

    Considering some of his food pics, he should have a cooking sub section in the Esee/Rat videos forum.
