    If I'd thought of it before I would've suggested doing leather trading cards... no time now. Anyway. Looking forward to meeting some familiar names.

    I usually use dog chews as a source for rawhide.

    The big knotted ones provide the most but I don't know if it would be suitable for your needs, it's usually quite thick.

    Masks for any sharp tools is always a good start.

    Small pouches, belts, hats...

    Thanks very much for a fascinating weekend I found it very difficult to come home because I felt more at home in the village I wish me and my family lived thear ha ha my wife probably would not feel the same way. The thing is at the village you are not stuck behind glass windows the air and smoke light and sound of nature is evrywear it's just a nice way to live. I loved spending time with old friends and making new friends and learning from each other was good, i lnjoyed the night when we all sat together and sheard stores and meed .I can't wait to see you all again soon .Thanks for all the help Gary and debs and the food was very nice indeed dave and carl thanks for your lovely food as well, hammish it was good fun sharing the house and I learned lots .it was a pleasure seeing you all and having you as viking neighbours. I will try and get some photos.

    Great photos guys.

    It was a real pleasure introducing you all to the village. Deb's and I both had a fine time and really enjoyed your company.

    I will talk to Dave ( The site manager ) soon and see if we can book some more dates for the future.
