Got back this afternoon from an overnight trip about 20 minutes from my home. It always amazes me the amount of state land that exists in the Northeast. In my home state of New York there are thousands of acres of state land for camping, exploring, hunting, fishing and of course bushcrafting. In neighboring Pennsylvania, there is acres upon acres of excellent state land to enjoy. All within an hours drive of my house. Look around the area you live, talk to your local forest ranger, find yourself some state land close to you and enjoy it.
