    This thread and Poll is to get feedback on where you would like us to concentrate our Course energy :D Please limit your choices to 3 and only post if you would really be willing to do the Course, this is not a commitment but a real world idea of how many would be interested. If we waste time working on Courses that you aren't really interested in but you just like the sound of it's going to damage the whole thing.

    if you are interested in just one thing, if you're interested in lots of things then prioritise up to 3 of them that you would pay for and go on.

    Any questions, suggestions or enthusiasm feel free to post in this thread - There's a number of things that i left out due to limited poll spaces - Anything can be done.

    You can see a comparable poll in the bushcraft UK Expedition forum

    Pretty much just the foraging ones, so thats the two foraging ones and the fungi one.

    For me the Fungi one would be ahead of the rest as the consequences of getting it wrong are more likely and often more of a problem.

    Makes no odds cos I'm skint anyway but those would be about the ones I'm interested in if I were in the market for a course if you get my drift.

    The herbal medicine would be interesting as long as its fact based (with medical evidence) and doesn't involve homeopathy or any of that water with memory of what has once been in it nonsense.

    1, Fungi
    2, Skills - Foraging / Wild foods - Forest, stream and field
    3, Skills - Foraging / Wild foods - Seashore / Sea
    4, Herbal medicine maybe, as far as I can remember Toddy has the right idea of what I understand as proper medicine as well as the book that I still haven't been able to afford yet that describes the stuff to use.

    Could be Sheffield, Torquay, Dartmoor, the Peaks,
    I would like to do any of those, but I forced myself to pick 3;

    Advanced Bushcraft.

    Basecamp & fintknapping as I have never really done much of that.

    For basecamp I would really like to do some metalwork, like forging a Tripod/pot hanger and other camp utensils and maybe some basketry & net making?

    I'm afraid I picked several (four!) - part of the problem of being spoilt for choice! They're areas of interest and greater weakness in my bushcraft arsenal...

    Absolutely, this years when very well and we'll be doing more next year, we jsut need to nail down the dates.

    We're thinking of doing a couple (or few) different ones.

    Ooh, I buggered up my voting sorry! Clicked too many and can't delete my vote, I'd go for:

    Bushcraft Weekend (based on introduction type course)
    Skills - Foraging / Wild foods - Forest, stream and field
    Skills - Flintknapping


    Would want to go for the whole Bushcraft week, but would depend on time and cash.
