    Help! Activity ideas needed for a two hour event

    I run 1.5hr and 3hr sessions pretty much daily. I support the 'doing it for a purpose' ethos, set a scenario. Need water? You're looking at nettle cordage, knife skills, water filtration and fire lighting. A bit much for 2 hours but you get the idea. Are your two sessions with the same group?

    [June 27th-29th] Stead Hall Wood (Between Otley and Ikley)

    What sort of toys should I be looking to bring along? Another 32' chute useful? Marshmallows? ;) I don't know if it's needed this time round but I'm a general activity instructor by trade with bushcraft being my 'thing', I'll be happy to get people playing on a bow drill, making nettle cordage...

    Alpkit's Top Tarp Tips

    Big fan of the tautline hitch, I infact used it for guys as well up til a week past. I'd got frustrated untying a 32 foot chute and started a google and came across the farrimond friction hitch. I used it quite happily on ridgelines and guys through the rough weather at the bushcraft show and a...

    The Bushcraft Show 2014....who's gonna be there?

    I'll be there for the weekend! I /was/ planning on heading down on the Friday, but my lass has dictated that her and the kids are going on the Saturday. So I'll be heading them about. Once they go though, I'll be chilling in the woods somewhere. Might need a fire to sit round...

    Up near inverness, places to see?

    An easy one is to pop over to Dores, just a few minutes out of Inverness. It sits on the northern bank of Loch Ness and has a cracking view down the length of it from a nice wee shingle beach were I spent many a night in my youth. Plus, the Dores Inn pub serves brilliant food! If you're in the...

    Show us your bow drill sets!

    You've got a fair bit of charring on the bearing block there, grab a green leaf and squidge it in there for some lube and give it another shot [I see you were doing so on another set in that same photobucket album]. You want to develop a polish at that end after a bit. EDIT: Sorry, I'm in work...
