    Sweden - Pathfinder Survival Course with Dave Canterbury

    Definitely kicking a dead horse here now, but I’ll make this doubly clear - this event was not just an American guy giving a course in Sweden, it was run by locals and attended by locals and was delivered well and considerately. A talk was given on leave no trace (by a local outdoor...

    Tight fitting outdoor trousers for men?

    There are a few brands that do leggings for hunting, they are quite popular among deer stalkers in some places. I've never taken enough notice of brands, but it might give you something to google. Alternatively, you could have a good tailor alter your trousers to your preferred fit.

    stick tang bushlore clone style knife

    Have a look at Brisa.fi. They’ve just released a scandi stick-tang in elmax that would fit your description.

    Garberg?

    I recently handled and used one briefly and it was comfortable, robust and seemed well thought out. If you like full-tang, stainless scandi knives it is a solid option that is probably worth the price. Mora kind of shot themselves in the foot with the pricing of their low-end knives making it...

    I'll be sure to pass the info on to the organisers who supervised everything, one of whom is a Swedish lawyer so I'm sure he'll find it interesting.

    I think the plan is for the March issue, Bear.

    It was great to test oneself in all the challenges, but I think the best thing for me was learning that you can spend a comfortable few nights in the wild with minimal gear by chooosing the right items and relying on your knowledge and skills. It was quite liberating.

    If you have any other questions, Corso, I'll do my best to answer them. It was an awesome experience, Samon. I'm 6'1" to give you a bit of scale;) As for patience, the older I get the more I try to have. I just try to assume people mean well and give the benefit of the doubt where I can. It...

    Sweden - Pathfinder Survival Course with Dave Canterbury

    For the 15 minute excercise a simple lean-to tarp setup with a ridge line was used. It was made clear, of course, that this is just a basic 'get the worst of the rain off you' setup. The reflective side of the grabber is faced down to reflect the heat of the fire onto to make for a more...

    Thanks Corso. It was good fun throughout and nobody was taking things so seriously that the fun disappeared. Dave is big on the 'possum' mentality and encouraged us to collect tinder throughout the course a the type of thing you might do hiking to a camp anyway. The idea of the timed...

    :lmao: Janne. Thanks for your opinions. I'll be sure to let the organisers know how you feel when I attend the next course. Just so you know, there was no sleeping bag, but a nice wool blanket, and no pine bows as I'm not of fan of cutting live trees unless absolutely necessary n

    Thank goodness for that. Have a better read of the posts and you might see that the fire on the rock was not claimed to be a quick fire and was the best option available.

    Sweden - Pathfinder Survival Course with Dave Canterbury

    Most of these fires were quickly lit and quickly put out, so no scars. I was quite happy to trust the locals participants and outdoor professionals when it came to their opinion on this. As for fire on rock. I'd much rather do this than dig down in unfamiliar ground and risk scorching peat and...

    Sweden - Pathfinder Survival Course with Dave Canterbury

    You assume wrong. The forest we were camped in was privately owned, we were there with permission from the owners and the area was cleaned up afterwards in line with the 'leave no trace' philosophy. When we were in areas for which the government is responsible we were visited by officials...
