The primitive technology dude bought a new piece of property and is starting a new series from scratch: clearing a spot for a hut, building the hut and a bed inside. Great stuff.
Digging clay out of a streambed, making some coiled pots and firing them in a campfire. Then, making a cooking pot and a dugout stove for heating water and cooking. Brilliant.

Snow, sweat, testosterone and the sound of chainsaws. Every four years, over a period of three months in winter, wood is being cut in a steep mountain high above Lake Ägeri and prepared for log rafting. Neither economic change nor technology has been able to replace this traditional and sustainable craft in Switzerland.

This is brilliant.

This is brilliant. When it warms up I’ve got to remember to check this out.
