    into the wild

    I'd highly recommended the book on which the film was based. Also his sister has given an interesting TED talk. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Wild Camping "Full Time" Possible?

    Slightly off topic, but I'd be interested to know if anyone has thought of sailing sections of the coast whilst foraging and fishing? It would have to be a small enough boat to get inshore and up estuaries. You wouldn't expend too much energy whilst traveling and you could continually fish...

    Campfire bread baking

    Afternoon, I recently tried to bake some bread in my Tatonka kettles (pots) with limited success and some unfortunate consequences. I rolled up some aluminum foil and put it in the bottom of a 1.6L kettle to create an air gap. I then placed the smaller 1L kettle inside the 1.6L (on top of this...

    Waxing Ventile? Counter productive?

    Thanks John. That makes sense. I thought as they are both cotton it might be similar technology but clearly not. I love my Fjallraven jacket. It's tough, warm and wind proof but in anything heavier than a light shower I have to switch to a waterproof jacket. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    hammocks

    The XXL ultra light hammock from TWHammocks might be worth a go at £18.99. It's got the length you might find useful and appears to be cheaper than DD equivalents. Don't bother with a net initially unless you're​ in midge country...

    hammocks

    If you live in the South East "Pure Bushcraft" in Surrey do an overnighter in hammocks. Sort of a basic introduction where they supply all the kit at around £25. It's how I first got introduced to it and have since bought all the kit. Otherwise go to a local meet mentioned in some of the...
