Urban Bushcraft – Building An All Natural Hidden Hut In The Heart Of The City

Add another joiner to the ever-growing list of bushcraft enthusiasts.

I’ve been watching a lot of videos from the likes of Shawn James at My Self Reliance (my favorite), Joe Robinet, TA Outdoors and The Bearded Woodsman and it’s really been rubbing off.

Actually, I think what would better refer to me at the time being is an urban bushcraft enthusiast.

Urban bushcraft?

Well, unfortunately, not all of us live in wooded, secluded areas where we can enjoy the liberty of the wild within minutes of choosing to do so.

While the plan is for Loretta and I to relocate to the countryside, which is where we want to have our tiny house, for the time being we’re still in Toronto.

That means we’re in Toronto time.

Which brings me to a confession: months later, there is still no part III to this series as “Toronto time” has gotten the better of me.

Hopefully, I can wrap up this urban bushcraft series prior to the onset of winter.

What you’ll see in this video is your truly roaming through one of the densest greenbelts within the city of Toronto.

I survey the different types of terrain, wood types available to me and attempt to find locations that are suitable for a build, yet hard for people to find as I don’t want my build vandalized or worse prior to completion.

Some of what I find in the greenbelt is pretty interesting (you’ll have to watch to see what I’m hinting at.

In part two of this series, I order quite a few goodies for myself and document it all in this bushcraft unboxing video.

UPDATE: Truth be told that Loretta and I have been so busy the past few weeks with shooting for the Tiny House Prep show as well as the purchase of our food truck that there might not be a part three to this series until spring.
