Impressive!

Encouraging to see his tenacity and commitment in a time when people get bored so quickly with short attention spans.

Much respect!

I have seen this video while ago when he had only couple projects to do,now his portfolio really is impressive!Also love the way how he is not talking and everything is rather ambient.Compared to some other Youtube "stars" who are raving about their achievements...

He’s obviously in Aussie due to wildlife. There’s no way an American could not talk! Their YouTube channels are painful!

I went on recently to problem solve and 3/4 of their clips are waffle.

I have been watching that bloke for a while and am very impressed.  When he made the mud hut I forced me boy to watch it and then suggested we build one in the back yard.  Needless to say he wasn't as excited as I was.

The lack of talking impresses me and also the fact that he starts with nothing - not even a knife.  Most of the other backpacking videos on you tube are blokes from survivalist forms cooking a steak over a fire.

Also if you haven't already check out Shugemery.  He does talk but he is amusing.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

That's cool.

Must be in an area with the right minerals in the soil so that everything binds together and fuses when baked.

In various videos you see him digging out particular mud to make the pots out of.  He also treads palm fronds into the mud when making bricks and the fireplace to bind it all together.

Yes he really is lucky to have a backyard full of suitable materials and plants to try out just about any prehistoric stuff there was  Cheesy But note that most of the videos are shot over a long period of time - he is writing up about it in his blog!Got a new land to play on just recently!  Cool
