Wilson, Reporting In

Post by Wilson on Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:43 pm

I'm Wilson, though in some circles I'm known as Whiskey.

I'm definitely a jack of all trades. I grew up on farms and in the bush, played with cars and offroad rigs throughout highschool, have been shooting rifle, bow, and shotgun since I was big enough to heft them, and have dabbled in online community creation and management; I hunt, fish, trap, and scout. The past several years of my life have been more or less dedicated to becoming as well a rounded survivalist as possible, developing a rich and varied skill set in all of the low-tech disciplines (and one or two high-tech ones); bushcraft, tracking, pathfinding, horticulture, herbalism, animal husbandry, horseback riding, blacksmithing, carpentry, archery, marksmanship, and seemingly everything in between. It's been a gauntlet, an overwhelming mountain of information that continues to loom higher and higher with every subpeak and plateau that I reach -- and I'm nowhere near finished, probably never will be, but I've been steadily reaching a point, through endless practice and research, where I can responsibly pass on my knowledge to others. This is a hobby like no other, richly rewarding in the skills and knowledge gained - there is also something to be said for spending your days in the woods, in the field or on the lake.

I'm of a mindset of practicality and balance; embrace technology and utilize it where it makes sense to do so, but remember not to put all of your precious eggs in a single basket. Learn the old ways, employ them passionately, and pass on your skills to others.

I'm not to the one to thank, I had no direct part to play in this iteration of the website. That's all on Bill. Future versions, well, that depends on how well this one does. We have to grow into our current set of boots before we should buy an even bigger pair!

Haha, I'm just joking Wilson! Someone took a stab in jest at you on ASC recently so I thought I would too!
