Why this board is named as it is.
#1
I think the translucent line between names like survival and bushcraft can get very philosophical, but that might not be the point of this board, or is it? I think that anything you do that benefits you in the bush is at least survival in a preparatory sense, so I think wilderness survival is a more inclusive term. A hot cup of tea that results in a good night's sleep can be achieved by hanging a kettle on a wood support over a fire, and this might be called bushcraft, but tomorrow's survival might depend on last night's good sleep. Bushcrafting a flute out of a reed results in a positive attitude change and the music greatly boosts morale (positive attitude). There are many examples, and they are all reasons why I tend to think of bushcraft as contained wholly within the category that is wilderness survival skills.

In survival, attitude is everything.
