    Insect repellent that doesn't eat plastic.

    Funny you should say that Stupidly simple have a Vaseline pot sized product called midge repel. It it pine tar based and works very very well IMO.

    Fear of the dark

    Never been too fussed about coming across a Ned in my camp, if they are that far off the beaten track the law isn't too far behind them. Plus it's a 2:1 ratio, 2 big burly bushcrafters and a wee eejit that thinks he's hard until he gets his new (stollen) adiboks stuck in the mud lol.

    First staff of the year.

    You could use it for that, or simply put your thumb in the fork. Some of the comfiest sticks/ staff's I've used are thumb sticks.

    I did for quite a while, but when someone starts to sing "gimme all your loving" you start to get the hint lol

    Welly Care Question

    Aye, they were indeed pvc. Although they were tough as heck and wide enough on the leg to get a decently thick socks breeks and overalls in. I don't find my feet cook in them though and I've worn them for 10 hours a day. I find though that like any boots the top needs to be loose enough to vent...

    Welly Care Question

    Wellie care for me is a scrub with a stiff brush. I have a pair off wellies that have been on the go since the foot and mouth. My dad was issued them at the time and he gave them to me when I needed a pair. Coming from a farming family they have been well worn, to the point where the soles are...

    Razor blade disposal

    I'm hoping for a couple of weeks in Eastern Norway later on this year. I have a close friend who lives out there now. The type of blades I uses are the flat double edged type, but having to shave every 1 to 2 days and having a heavy stubble I only get a maximum of 2 shaves before I have to...

    STUPIDLY SIMPLE lip balms ~ plain o' wicked

    I might be tempted to try that bug oil too. Where do I purchase it exactly.

    Razor blade disposal

    Cheers for the ideas. I use a disposable blade straight so the tic tax boxes are ideal for me.

    Tick Repellant

    I vouch for the nylons method too, and they stop chaffing in the thighs as well. The best repellent I've heard of is using a rank concoction of cigarette buts and beer, it's isn't pretty but it works. Basically you steep the dog ends in the beer for a week or so then strain it into a spray...

    Razor blade disposal

    Ok, to cut a long story short lately I have been trying to stay un-bearded. I've ran into a problem though, on a long trip where do I store my dull blades. What I would like to know is there any very compact containers that I can use to store them in so I'm not likely to cause myself an injury...

    Coping with knots?

    Depends on what the knots on really. If it's a bow, especially a flat bow there is no way around scraping with the grain as it is still part of the back, and therefore needs to be preserved as that. Anything else I tend to file it down with the grain. But in my opinion if it's not hurting...

    Bison bushcraft moleskins

    It was on their site they only go up to a 33 but raw legs interests me a lot. I might take a wee jaunt to my local tractor dealer tomorrow and see if they carry them.

    Bison bushcraft moleskins

    Just had a look at the Monarchs, and they too have the same problem, too short in the legs. It's a shame really as I'm very familiar with their products, I grew up and out of a fair few of them.

    Bison bushcraft moleskins

    Aye I'd need at least a 34 which is a bit crap lol. Oh well it's probably going to be a wool shirt from you, but thanks for the effort anyway.
