    Yep Crosslankelly, burning some midnight oil and signing up to Photobucket seemed to do the trick!

    These are lovely pictures James and Sandy.

    I think that a thread showing all the activities we cover on the starter course would be great. I could do it or feel free to put it up yourself.

    The course has proved very popular over the last two years with lots of participation from students and instructors.

    I also have a few pictures from the course and feel free to take copies of any you want here.

    I also have a link to my photobucket account.

    Cheers

    George

    I was at the Gathering last weekend and two stalls down was this Blacksmiths (he is a scout master) - Arc Weld. These large set ups were on sale and I bought a couple of pieces of him for my set up.

    Cheers

    Dear Dave, George is smack on, yes our fire set up came from Alan at ARC Welding http://alantheblacksmith.co.uk/

    We bought the larger oval fire platform as it seemed most functional, we bought it at this years 'Bushcraft Show' where Alan was selling them. They are around £155 list price, comes with the platform, two tripods, a cross bar with sliding hooks, three hooked chains and a circular grill on suspended chains. Ours had a sturdy canvas bag to store the polls and chains in which is handy. Luckily it fitted in our Jeep's boot too! I would recommend it.

    Good idea George about starting a thread showing all the activities covered on the starter course.

    We split into the smaller groups and I am sure plenty of photos were taken, it would be good if you start a thread and put a call out to all to see what photos are out there!

    We didn't take photos of every activity. Feel free to use any or all of our photos.
