An African swallow maybe, but not a European swallow.

[quote name='vector001' post='319525' date='Jan 13 2009, 02:53 PM']Dear Abo,



How can we get forestry back on track from the strange, destructive route it is is going on now? ...; no fires permitted, or severely limited to artificial settings, fuel building up in the woods, entire communties lost to forest fires more than ever before, and more than in relatively-unmanaged wildernesses, such as Mexico has;



Do you think that aboriginal-style land use has a place in today's managed eco-systems?



we have Wildlife Corridors, after all - it stands to reason that we should have Wild Livng Corridors too.

Dear Mr. Aboman Sir,



How do you make primitive wilderness shelters comfortable? Especially, how do you cope with bugs and allergies and stay moderately clean in a primitive shelter?



Is it true that bugs can crawl into your ears at night while you are sleeping and get into your brain? So many voices in my head...

Aboman,

What were the major logistics issues that natives had to solve in order to make it from one season to the next? Related question: What specific preparations did the natives make to accomodate the changing seasons? For example, what did they do to prepare for winter going into spring, spring going into summer, summer going into fall, and fall going into winter?

Dear Aboman,



What wilderness skills were taught to young natives first? Which ones were deemed most important? Which skills should we try to learn first?
