    Where can I go to legally practice all aspects of Bushcraft without permission?

    There's a newish member based not far from you in Lincoln, her name is Woodslady and from the few posts she's made so far it would seem she is the answer to your prayers :) She seems to have land and is keen for bushcrafters to go there and practice their skills. Maybe drop her a pm on here...

    How to determine potential water contaminants? (location: Pentland Hills, Scotland)

    Why use bleach if you don't think it'll work? I've had Giardia and I wouldn't wish it on anybody! Why not use chorine based puritabs or similar....or boil it, or even buy and use a small lightweight filtering system....there's loads about :) There could be alsorts in those reservoirs, as...

    Double-ended Whoopee Sling (for tarp guy-line)

    I don't think your post came over as a dig mate, well I certainly didn't read it that way :) Everybody's opinion is valid and each to their own :). If you like it then great, I think its neat too....just a little over kill for a tarp guy line IMO ;) Hang easy Hammock Man :)

    Double-ended Whoopee Sling (for tarp guy-line)

    That looks great....rather complicated etc but it looks good and if you're happy with it then good for you :) I tend to use a bungee or whatever scraps of cord I have with me and whatever knots I fancy tying at the time lol :) I try not to do the same thing all the time as I feel it inhibits my...

    Some PVC archery fun!

    Brilliant, looks like lots of fun. I got my 6 year old a child's recurve for christmas but at 15lbs it's still a bit of a struggle for him to draw properly.....might have to make him a PVC bow in the meantime :) Cheers :)

    A small crop of Strawberries ...

    We've got heaps of them growing round here, unfortunately they grow mainly along the paths used by dog walkers (including me) and pretty much the entire crop has been irrigated by doggy pee......so I tend to leave them to the local wildlife to enjoy ;) Used to have a decent size patch in my...

    Bivi bags

    Because a bivvi bag is supposed to keep out water and a sleeping bag isn't.....the same way you don't have a zip down the side of a dry bag for convenience. Also a bivvi bag is able to lay in a puddle (personal experience in Brecon) or mud where a zip could be compromised by the mud or breached...

    Bivi bags

    I've got a hunka and they are brilliant, however, they are tight and if you are any bigger than me (5'11 and 14.5 stone) you will need the larger one...I have the standard and it's very tight to the point I only use it when weight is an issue and use the British issue one the rest of the time...
