Evening all. I've been rushed off my feet over the last couple of months and had little forum time, and the reason is planning this 4 day woodland event.
We begin on Tuesday 22nd april until 25th, 10 till 5.
The first 2 days are demonstrating traditional woodland crafts such as hurdle making...
Following this year of strange weather, late spring, heavy rain and heatwaves, the fruits around here are huge, plump and juicy.
So after foraging various nuts and fruits today, I collected a couple pounds of haws.
I've been munching on them for days as they are far juicier and plumper than...
Anyone going this weekend? Loads of traditional English woodland skills, lumberjack demonstrations, axe throwing, bushcraft, archery and so on.

Here is the second Storm kettle group buy, this time I am happy to be able to offer the Storm 4 litre and 8 litre Dutch ovens, which come pre seasoned.
This time around, the full range of kettles are available in the hard anodised coating as well as traditional aluminium.
These are unbelievable...
I am fortunate again to be able to offer a group buy for the amazing storm kettles again this September, This will begin next week and will run till the end of sept.
I am able to offer the full range of kettles, from the f1 to the f4 at roughly the same price as the last group buy (royal mail...
I've been having a play today with friction fires.
Struggled with the bow drill owing to my drill not being straight or long enough :confused:, so a little foraging is on the cards for tomorrow!
However, I'd had a long length of dry elder in the shed for ages, about half inch diameter and...
As the title says, I am looking for a few of you folk to help out with a woodlands/bushcraft event on 7th august this year at my local woodlands in Castleford, West Yorkshire.
I have been involved with a local woodlands friends group for a little while now, helping with the rangers forest...
You may have seen this before, or know of the story.
I have a misplaced 'Chopper Reid' view on emotions and hardly ever find 'touching' things 'touching'. However I did find this quite emotional and thought I'd share.
The story is of a severely disabled son who asks his father (who has a heart...
Chiseller and I (along with Chiseller III) went on a bimble today in the hope of foraging some st George mushrooms. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be any about, however we did come across pignuts, and plenty of them.
Between us we dug up a couple each.
These were good eating.
Sorry this is completely off topic, but any advice is appreciated.
I bought a number of courier deliveries via eBay, costing £80 (18 in total). It was a buy it now, and choose quantity.
The courier arrived promptly, but took over a week to deliver 1 item, the rest were returned to me.
I have been chatting with the lads at the storm kettle shop (tornado boiler co), and am fortunate enough to be able to offer a group buy on the full range of storm kettles currently in production (sadly at the moment I can't offer the cook kit or pan support, but these can be bought from them...
I've had a strange development with some horses hoof fungus I liberated at the weekend. The amaduo later was very thick, so instead of the traditional way of 'peeling' it. I cut off the bottom spore part, and sliced layers of the amaduo off.
Now half was put on the window ledge to dry, the...
Hi all, it doesn't seem 2 minutes since I was welcomed into this marvelous fold. And here I am, several months on, passing my 1000th post.
Firstly thanks to everyone I know and have met, and those of you I have yet to meet. You are a great bunch.
Now on with the fun.
The winner of this...
I don't need one, I'd only probably use it a handful of times a year. But. I want one.
Now I've seen an unissued one at a store for £100 (silver).
Firstly. Is £100 a good price for basically a new one, in mint condition?
Secondly. How much better are these than say a Coleman petrol lantern...
The storm boys at the storm kettle shop are doing an mkettle amnesty. The idea is to send them your mkettle, they'll give you a discount code for 35% off the f1 or f1ti.
No affiliation etc, just a satisfied customer.

A non bushy item for sale here, but it may be of use to someone.
A brand new, unused dewalt nail gun. Complete with charger and 2 batteries (2.6 ah NiMH)
It's a top of the line nailer, never used.
I don't need this since moving to a new house last year, swmbo says I'm not allowed to build...
