Yeah, I had to ration the water though. I only had 2lt.
thats the problem with a small tin by the time its boiled up there is not much for drinking...
good effort though mate...
Still thinking about doing this, can't decide how I should do it. I'm thinking:
-Loaf of bread
I'd like to build and maintain a firebundle through the day and evening, hiking through to a sheltered spot, and use it to set a fire with a frying stone to cook my eggs once the sun has gone done. Maybe a bit risky, if the fire fails I'm stuffed, never tried a bowdrill so I wouldn't have any real alternative ways of getting a fire going. Blanket as a bivi on a fallen leaf bed, or on the off chance theres a storm rigged as a tarp.
Fires are illegal here tho' so I'm trying to think up interesting alternative ideas. I'll usually build a fire but it's really dry in August which makes me paranoid about starting a forest fire..
as you cant have a fire i will allow you to take a fire pit or BBQ type thing to have a fire in, this would be a free item, the way you light it and your fuel should come from the woods or will count as items....
hope this helps.
I'm guessing they're illegal too. This time of year the fire risk in forests in southern Europe is frightening and you'd be insane to start any kind of a fire.
Good camp Jamie. Well done on the bowdrill
Yep exactly. It's been relatively wet this year from what I've gathered, we had lots of storms in July but August has just dried everything out.
I have the next few days off so I think I'll head out tomorrow or tuesday, dependant on an interesting idea, perhaps theming it as a real life scenario. Otherwise I'm planning a longer hike at the end of August.
Going to do this tomorrow.
Kit will be
Mora 137 ( 3 and 3/4 inch one) and 6 eggs.
Is water free? i have no drinkable water in my wood.
Edit won't be going today, it's sunday lol
water is free, best of luck with it...
come on gents no pic's from outings, none of you want the blade then????
My entry will be towards the end of the month
nay probs mate....
after having your kit robbed this competition is a god send!!
I have a idea of what ill take and what i hope to do
any updates Beenn????
Hopefully out this weekend! When does the entry need to be in by?
If i miss it i will still go out and live it a go
end of september i think???
not many entries so if its a gooden with lots of pic's you could win it mate...
I'm gutted I'm not going to get chance to be out overnight before the end of the month, will still give it a bash next time I can, after locating a suitable area - all the woods close by are on hills, and I don't fancy rolling down them in the middle of the night by accident!
Sounds right, was august but then got extended?
Wish i had done it a month back, the night are slowly getting colder!
Its a real learning experience
seeing as not many people have entered we could exstend it again to give people a chance....
whats the thought of the group?????
