    Heads up, tents at Asda

    Just a brief note, in Asda today, there's one near where I work at forest farm in Cardiff, they've got an offer on small 2 man tents down to £7. They're not the best in the world, but for £7 they're an excellant backup to a tarp if there's no trees around, and fairly light weight. They'll fit 2...

    My First knife

    Hello, after seeing several examples of really good quality knives at the Bushmoot, this year, I thought I'd finish my first knife. The blade was made for me, by my good friend Ogri The Trog, who started with an old metal file, ground it down and shaped it, then heat treated it in his kitchen...

    Jews Ears

    I've just been out for a lunchtime break from work, and took a short walk along the Taff trail, a loop of about 1 mile from the office. I came across a nice collection of Jews ears growing on an elder branch, and collected a handful. I've read that the best way to use them is to dry them and...
