    Evening everyone. Lurked for a few days and now time I think for an intro. Always been an outdoors person and love the idea of bush-craft but never practised it in any great shape. I recently hit 56 and thought if I don't do it now then I never will. Watched many a you-tube video and blog and now it's time for a bash myself. I don't even know anyone who's remotely interested to share the experience but that wont put me off.

    No going back now; I have spent nearly a grand in two weeks preparing for my first foray into the wild. I have an appointment with the lakes in two weeks and then retreat to some land I have in Worcestershire for a proper attempt at self sufficiency. I hope to come back here and let you know how I got on, if you don't here from me send out the search party. All the gear and no idea was never a more fitting statement it seems. Great forum.

    Hi and welcome!
    Enjoy your time outdoors and remember that although it's rarely as easy as it looks you can still have lots of fun trying!

    Oh and a healthy stash of tea and your biscuit of choice makes everything much more enjoyable. :D
