Body Skills

As you may or may not know, Urban Scout has created the world’s first open source field guide. The subject? Rewilding. And I’ve added my first page – Body Skills. An excerpt:

Body Skills

Rewilders can easily overlook the importance of training their body, in favor of the technological skills of wilderness living. In fact, many cultures see the intimate knowledge of how to use one’s body effectively as a technology in and of itself. Modern humans have the overwhelming excess of calories to make moving inefficiently and carrying constant tension an option. A person with an efficient body will find the vast array of wilderness skills far easier and pleasant, even with little or no actual change in “technique”.
