    Norway Trip

    Forgot about the last day, it gets better! I slept in the woods around the airport the night before my flight home. Just used a bivi bag on the floor in the middle of the woods, so I felt very open and exposed (last night so didn't matter if I got wet). Except there were twigs snapping around me...

    darkdrummer username change + bow drill

    Just thought I'd announce that I've changed my username from Dark Drummer to J Matthews, but more importantly that I got a bow drill to work for the first time the other day, which was shortly followed by a tremendous hi-five! Fantastic to see the tinder bundle finally burst into flames :)...

    Norway Trip

    Well then! I got back home a little while ago and thought I would write a little summery :) It's taken a while to finish it because I've been bit of a 9 til' 5 robot lately- covering for the boss at work- got to save up for another trip! So I arrived in Norway, got off the plane and sat in...

    Thanks badgeringtim, will do :) Cheers Jontok- well it's all part of the adventure! By the way, how is rødsprit pronounced? Is it said just how it is written? Could someone write it phonetically for me- I can imagine making a plonker of myself trying to ask for it! :D Cheers, James

    Norway Trip

    Thanks all :) Right then I'm off as soon as my maps arrive! I'll be flying to Oslo Torp in Sandejord Lufthavn and then hitching and walking to Evje. I don't suppose anyone knows, from having been there, where is close to the airport that I can buy "Rod sprit" (methylated spirit) from. Also, is...

    What is bushcraft to you??

    Watching a fire. Walking along and thinking I know what that it, I can eat that, I can't remember what that is. Cooking food on a fire I made. Waking up in the night outside, looking round then falling back asleep in my hammock. Listening to every slight crack of a twig and catching the tiny...

    Norway Trip

    I'm thinking about going out there about the 10th May (all depends on whether I'm ready) and then returning at the end of the month on the 31st May, thats 3 weeks. The cheapest flights are to Oslo, but I need to be in Evje, so... I'll walk there! It will take about a week each way, but I'm...
