    Hi, as suggests the title, i come from a land a little bit on the south than you.

    Of course there is French bushcraft forums, but the reason why i log on bushcraftuk is that i'm preparing a geology examination. And English is one of the various theme for being an engineer.
    How can i improve my english ? My hobby is the bushcraft, so why not learning bushcraft in english ?
    So please tell me when i use a wrong word or if you don't understand me, i'm trying to speak and write better for my examination !

    Now, about my hobby ...
    Well, i started by building a little house near a cute river into the forest :

    By this way i've been hearing about "living in the woods", also called Bushcraft.

    I decided to inform myself about it, and i discovered a new passion. Then i learned a lot with french forums and finally experimented by my own in the woods. Like that :

    [video=youtube;ysMv0zM71bQ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysMv0zM71bQ[/video]

    At the age of 16 i've even make a course at Ray Mears company and success at this week, for my 18 i went 2 weeks into a enchanted forest : Brocéliande (where Merlin the Magician died). 2 years ago, i travelled in the Jura mountains during 1 month, only with my backpack and nothing else.
    And my last expedition was this summer, in Canada ! I've planed to paddle for 1 month by canoe like our ancestors : the trappers or the voyageurs. Me and a friend have filmed all our adventure and we'll soon make a film -more precisely a documentary- about this trip.let's watch the trailer ! Unfortunately only in french ...



    So, it's just a little view about myself, if you want to discover what i do, please make a turn on my youtube channel, i've a lot of videos about my bushcraft experimentations :

    I think i've told all what i've to introduce myself, if you have any question about me, please comment ! I'll try to answer you in a -not too- bad english !!

    Ciao,
    J-K

    Welcome, Jacob.
    Out of interest, where is the Broceliande forest you went to? I thought that it was a place of legend, rather than a real location.

    Is it in Brittany?

    Bienvenue.

    Hi potboiler,

    The forest i mentionned is precesily in Brittany. Near a city "Rennes" it's also called the forest of Paimpont.

    Look on the West from Rennes, you'll noticed a green patch, here it is :)
    [​IMG]

    There is full of magical places in and around this forest, but you are right, Brocéliande is above all a secret place.
    For example, you can visit the Merlin's grave, but i'm not sure it is the real one ...

    Hello Jacob, welcome from the United States,,,

    I visit the http://bushcraft.fr/phpBB/index.php page fairly often, and I have a great many actual and FaceBook friends in France. Once upon a time I was licensed to teach French, but now I endeavor to myself understood by my long suffering French friends, all of whom speak English better than I do.

    Enjoyed the video you posted and subscribed to your youtube channel,,,

    Hi! Welcome to BCUK from an ex-pat living in Normandy! That forest sounds great, I'll have to do a bit of research about that place.

    Going to watch your video now. (I so wish my French was as good as your English :eek: )
