Some of the life lessons that everyone can take away from this series are found here.
Primitive Building Skills
Do you know what to do if you were lost in the wilderness? How to find and build shelter with the items supplied in the forest or woods? If not, then you may learn a thing or two by tuning into “Bushcraft Build-Off.” The host, Matt Graham, scours the country to find the best of the best when it comes to bushcrafting.
How to Remain Positive when Facing an Adverse Situation
While the show is designed to be challenging, the trails are also designed to bring out the best in those competing. The mental part of the challenge is just as exhausting and grueling as the physical part of it. Watching this show can help you see how you can remain positive and help others, even when you are facing a situation that is challenging and putting all your mental and physical strength to the test.
How to Turn Nothing Into Something
If you were stuck in the wilderness, you may look around and see dirt, sticks and leaves, nothing more. However, this show teaches you how to see what these items really are — the key to your survival. You can learn how to use these natural items to provide shelter for yourself, find food and more. These are skills that can be beneficial to you and in the future even your kids.
Learn what the First Settlers to the Country Experienced
Chances are, you read about the first settlers to the country in history during your time in school. However, if you have never “walked in their shoes,” you can’t truly appreciate their plight. “Bushcraft Build-off” let’s you get a look at how hard these early settlers really had it. For example, no power tools, no electricity, and minimal equipment. This is something that most people don’t experience in modern times.
The True Meaning of “Roughing It”
If you have ever gone camping, you may believe you have been “roughing it.” However, this simply isn’t the case. Modern camping includes sleeping bags, tents, and in some cases, RVs. This isn’t really roughing it. Having to create your own shelter, bed, protection and more is. This show brings out these things and shows you how people from today are able to cope with it.
If you want to watch a show that can teach you a few things, then it may be a good idea to tune into “Bushcraft Build Off.” You will find the life lessons here, as well as a few more.
