This week on the Equip 2 Endure Show, we speak with our special guest, Mr. Bruce Pandoff. Bruce Pandoff is a wildland firefighter and geographer from Michigan's Upper Peninsula. He attended NMU for environmental conservation and human geography. While at Northern, he received training as a wildland firefighter and wilderness medical first responder. Working for the USFS as a fire technician, he most enjoyed getting to see the vast and varied landscapes of the United States and helping to protect our natural resources. Having been introduced to the outdoors and camping by his former USMC father, Bruce got an early start as a bushcrafter. He credits his father with first introducing him to foraging edible plants, hunting, fishing, trapping, and his minimalistic philosophies. These skills were further expanded upon through hard study, experience, and training in wilderness living courses taught in the U.P. Bruce enjoys primitive skills and is constantly researching the skills and methods of those living close to the earth around the world such as the Sami, Inuit, Kombai, and Menominee Indians. Through heavy emulation of hunter-gatherers, he takes a minimalist approach to bushcraft, often reciting his affirmation of his love and heavy use of plants with the mantra “plants don't run!” Bruce also happens to be a weakly contributing author on Equip 2 Endures very own web site.
