I live on the South Island in Otago. What sort of things are you into (besides Bushcraft, I guess!)? A helicopter flight up onto one of the glaciers is an amazing trip. Heaps of good trout fishing opportunities practically everywhere. If you like hunting, there are lots of options...
Looks like you had a lovely trip John, and perfect weather too! I bet the kids loved it. I'm planning on a night or two out with my eldest (Katie, aged 9) in a hut somewhere, but haven't got round to it yet.
I made these with some steel wire, paper clips and a simple jig. I haven't tried them yet as I'm waiting for the fishing season to start.
Just wondering if anyone out there has actually tried them, and got any tips to success.

Thanks for the info torc.
The music was good. Capercaillie and Iron Horse ring a bell with me too! I've got one episode on tape, so I'll check it out.
I'm sure the series was available on video as I saw someone selling it on ebay once. Hopefully it'll turn up again somewhere sometime.
Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain a copy of the TV series from the 1990's titled "The Gamekeeper - A Year In The Glen"?I know there's a book that goes with the series, but I want to watch the episodes again. I've tried ebay, but no listings at present.
Thanks in advance...
I just recently saw an exhibition of this stuff during a Victorian heritage celebration and thought it was great. Impressive weaponry! I'm sure a steampunk inspired bushcraft blade or survival knife would be an interesting sight!
Blimey!!! Take it easy! I'm sure he's not really going to carry a hammer and nails around with him, just so he can have a shave. A twig sticking out will do just a well. No need to come down on him like a ton of bricks!
