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.
