some very interesting ideas, i did think that there would be allot of "cup-a-soups" and dryed foods and nuts. i try to avoid cup-a-soups and pot noodles etc.

Haven't been on here in a while so thought id post something fairly useful or interesting for bush crafters and survivalists alike.
as you all probably know we all need food to live. so I have been wondering dose anyone go out of there way to have nutritional or great tasting meals...

I know tree identification skills can be picked up along the way, I mean I know how to identify the basics like Birch, Beech, Pine and Oak. But i want to fast track my learning of this...
this hasn't ever happened to forcefully, but if i were you id pick a place to set up camp, take all the essentials in the first go then go back and forth getting the rest of the desirables to make life as easy as possible when I am living out the in the bush, but thats just me.
Ok People after a week-end of hard use... i can safely say the Bahco Laplander worth its weight in gold, makes you wonder why you ever hacked away are larger branches! and once you have this little piece of "Essential" kit you will wonder why you never got one sooner!
