It's been ages since I was out doing bushcrafty things. Since moving back from the UK the closest I have got is doing some hiking. Would anyone be up for a Bushy meet in the Wicklow Mountains this Autumn? I don't know any good spots or anything, just seeing if there is any interest...
I was just wondering what people's ideas were on the best way to find north on a cloudy night? Or maybe not cloudy, maybe it's raining blood or something, but either way you can't see the stars and you have no compass or watch.

With all the spoon threads on here I thought it was only right that I should post this clip from Don Hertzfeldt's oscar nominated short film, Rejected. The full film can be seen on youtube.
I was walking along a pth in Kielder when I spotted this between the trees
So I went over to check it out and it looked like it hadn't been used in ages. Thing is, the ground was completely sodden. It was really boggy and I found it quite difficult to get around. Must have taken...
I think I'll start a thread where I upload a recent pic that I like every now and again instead of threads full pics from one day/event. I'll try and do one per week. It might force me to do more :) They may be good, they may not. I'll just be posting ones that I like. Feel free to comment in...

So there's this:
And then there's this:
Is it possible to get a DSLR of any sort of quality for less than £200?
I have a Pentax Optio compact which is grand for out and about, travelling etc., but not so grand when I want to take a really nice photo. So I was thinking of getting a Digital SLR for some good nature shots and...
Here are my pics for the latest Brockers meet. It was eventful, and a great time was had by all I think. Except Wonky, who died. :( Nobody was at fault.
Unfortunately I have no photos of "the incident", so here you go:
Has anybody seen this? http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/the-secret-life-of-plants/ It starts to get very interesting about 4 mins into the 3rd part where the guy hooks a plant up to a polygraph machine. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this, and how people feel about the idea of...
Thought I'd give a shout to anyone interested in cheap gear here in Newcastle. Apologies if thread is in the wrong place.
I was in town today and saw that Sports Direct in the Monument Mall are having a closing down sale with mad discounts. As well as some cheap sports equipment I...
You're looking well. Enjoying the weather eh. Good times.
Anyway, a small amount of you know I have been trying to make my first knife since the Jan Brockers meet thanks to Chris and his endless generosity. Well, after 4 albums of Alice Chains on my first work day since...
I was just wondering how you lovely people go about relieving yourselves in the wild. I'm particularly interested in methods of disposing of your solids. I was at Brockwell at the weekend and did my first wild number 2 and was wondering what you guys look for in a spot. Do you...
