    I doubt I am bringing the lad, he has a swimming thing but I intend on coming for the day.

    Would like to practise fire lighting and would also like to cut some hazel or something to make a thumbstick if cutting some wood would be allowed?

    I also want to look for animal tracks and signs. Will bring my camera to take pics aswell :)

    Also want to try a different way of using my tarp :)

    Looking forward to it :)

    Hello,

    I’d like to drop by to say hello and ask advice, if that’s okay? Ed sent a link to this thread in response to my first post.

    Best wishes,
    Darryl

    Clicking on 'about us' then 'location' does not seem to work. Where about are you? Nearest train station Amberley?

    Cheers.

    The meet is definitely on. A good chance for folk to get out and enjoy the woods whilst the weather is kind and the thermostat isn’t too low. Temperatures expected to drop to around zero on Friday.

    I will be arriving around 2pm to set up.

    It was a great weekend. I really enjoyed meeting some great people and sharing our site.

    Ok who thought it was a good idea to let the shortest member of the group to put up the parachute.
    The taller members will be pleased we raised the shelter a few feet.

    I’ll start a new thread for the February meeting.
