    A milestone. Not bushcrafty though.

    If I get to wake up in the morning I get to celebrate. A milestone in my life. 30 years of sobriety. Ir has been a ride and with that I have been able to enjoy being outside again. This post kind of blows my anonymity but the world knew me as a drunk. I believe they like the sober me better...

    Tomato and other powdered foods

    I started a thread on BCUSA about Tomato powder. It is something that got the OCD going and I had to try it. I got all kinds of good feedback from it plus other powdered foods. Things like peanutbutter powder, mushroom powder, powdered butter etc. How about your side of the pond? Do you...

    Translation question again.

    I have noticed references to fairre dust and farrie liquid in some recent posts. I have no clue as to what these people are refering to. Are they infact some kind of useful things for lubrication(My guess)? Or are they some type of magic reference? Please forgive the denseness of...

    You guys have some very strange laws

    I was reading about someone wanting s 410 shotgun and then there was talk of putting a supressor on it. Here in the States if we want to do a silencer of any type we have to go to the ATF fill out a long application and pay a $200.00 tax stamp. Then there are your knife laws. Here we can carry...
