Yeah - I could work with that.....
Sometimes, that phrase can be shortened to "geezer." Possibly "Wheezer Geezer?"
In another board, there's no place to post recipes. So we made one up = [FF] = Food Forum.
I can see here = [OT] to be 'Old Time" to cover many different things.
What should the lower age limit be?
65 or is that to much senile?
I have always defined "old" as being at least ten years older than me.
I have always defined "old" as at least ten years older than me.
Age doesn't matter as much as the knowledge base.
Don't wait for TV bushcraft. Buy the old books and do it.
My SIL taught me some paleo cooking tricks that I use just about every week.
Old foods, old crafts, shelters, clothings. Making repairs, replacing parts.
Some of it is paleo, like cooking fish in clay.
I find it's a lot of fun to mess with some of these foody things in my kitchen on a rainy day.
Come over and help me eat it all. That egg thread is a great example.
I'd like to learn more about how to cook meat over open fires without a 16" Lodge cast iron pan as a crutch.
It could be a great thread for the youngsters / computer generation to read, and maybe learn a thing or two from?
I find that nowadays I have more to learn from the younger generation than they have from me.
My 13 year old grandson, for example, already has a wide knowledge of bushcraft skills and is also my go to expert on all matters of modern technology.
He not only knows how to operate camera traps and drones but also know how, when and where to deploy them to study wildlife. He co-ordinates his findings and does further research on the computer.
When I was his age it was a matter of sitting in a corner of a wood for hours, pencil and paper for field note and the Observer's Book of Birds/Animals/Trees/Plants/etc and whatever my biology teacher chose to tell me.
For sure, and he might navigate using a GPS, but you can teach him using a compass and map.
Or nature itself and a map.
Let's go back to pre-Sputnik times. When all the batteries are dead, I think I can manage.
Many, many thousands of winters have come and gone and our First Nations managed OK, they are not extinct.
so we have:
Most honourable and revered, wise and much esteemed codger
We could add Codgers
A)Those who know best!!!
B)Methusalems Advice Centre!!!
C)The grey BUSHCRAFTERS!!
D) OAP Corner
Take your pick?
And of course for a prefix button...........
OAB (old age bushcrafters) which would have the advantage of open interpretation
Old antisocial bas@€£¥&s could be an example
I decided to go for a trip down Memory Lane last weekend but I couldn't remember where it was.
Not so Nice65
Not the first time, and I dare say not the last. You’ve been reading that username thread haven’t you.
I’m just jealous cos I’m not that old, but seem to have seriously overworked and mistreated some of my joints. My addition to the thread, in terms of getting where I want to, is the acquisition of an electric golf trolley. My rucksack fits perfectly and, despite looking a plonker, I can get to some of my old carry in locations with 3 days of gear, food, and water. It’s genius, and I’m not the perspiring, panting wreck that the rest of my mates are when they shed their packs onto the ground and gasp for water.
I'm amazed and we've never even met!!! You're describing me so accurately lol
We probably did mate, just forgot.
Been around the block bushcrafters!
I quite like the OAB's you don't have to be old, just been into bushcraft and camping a while!
