    How to blend into the background?

    Indeed....tread lightly in everything we do

    How to blend into the background?

    So we go bushcrafting (whatever that means) we make a fire because we have nothing else in our armoury and, as long as we sweep the fire scar aside and pee on the hot bits before we go we’ve been LNT?

    How to blend into the background?

    Instant gratification and virtue signaling: The whole of society is hell bent on “getting their share of nature”, posting an Instagram post of them getting it and picking up their litter, very tedious.

    How to blend into the background?

    I mean to say that those we “need” to teach lnt to will need their further impact explained along with the obvious? Most people who need to be told not to light fires or leave litter also need their bottoms wiped for them.

    How to blend into the background?

    I think it’s everything, too much emphasis is on the immediate and visual by everyone nowadays....instant gratification and virtue signalling are getting tedious.

    How to blend into the background?

    Is the biofuel a byproduct of a sustainable ethical process? Sold on in a signal use bottle? Coast path been maintained by machinery? Maintenance crew arrive in cars? It can go on and on can’t it? I do disagree, the obvious lnt principles are easy to point out and virtue signal over as per...

    How to blend into the background?

    Lovely spot: did you trample any foliage on the way in? Did you drive before walking to the spot? Did you use a stove that gives off fumes? Just playing devils advocate and showing that trace is more than the obvious....no offence intended.

    How to blend into the background?

    Indeed, I agree, our impact is a trace that needs consideration. Leave no trace is so much more than just tidying of fire scars and litter...... I attempt to be discreet, quiet and considerate to the environment at all times....some people aren’t happy unless they’re...

    Trip Report Well needed hammock anaesthesia

    It’s a struggle to get out of the hammock, but it is best to deal with the foliage watering as soon as need is felt, I’ve found; then I get a quicker return to the cocoon of comfort! You’re most welcome, I enjoy capturing small clips to aid memory of the moments that make me tick.

    Hammocks - got some questions

    Diagonal lay is key but you need the choice...head left/feet right doesn’t suit everyone. That’s factual.

    How to blend into the background?

    Laying in a hammock has allowed me to witness some wonderful things, I try to pitch near deer trails and/or water. Just waking up in the woods allows most creatures to feel more confident around your camp. I also do my best to function from the hammock, drinks and meals from the hammock are...

    Hammocks - got some questions

    If you’re over 6’ I’d go for a custom 12’, the length requirements of taller hammockers are well proven by the US guys who hammock a lot more than us in the UK and have pushed the limits of fabrics and designs beyond anything available in the UK. I’m 6’5” and 17-18st season dependant:shameful...

    Trip Report Well needed hammock anaesthesia

    Definitely. Bit poignant at the moment...just had a painful bunion type surgery, so I’m most likely unable to walk far for several weeks.

    Sold sea to summit sleeping pad

    For sale by me, in perfect condition as only used twice on a recent long walk, realised I’m too in love with hammocks and the ground is no place to sleep as I age! through no fault of this mat though...it is supremely comfortable. No rips, tears, damage, stains, scuffs or otherwise. Good as new...

    Beware Wanted Scammers on Forum

    Be a shame to see bcuk classifieds turn into a clunky eBay just because one or two oddities like the modern world and big companies. Not sure I want to feel part of a modern world when I’m in the woods carving an implement...nor indeed adding to a big companies’ wallet when I may want to trade a...

    Beware Wanted Scammers on Forum

    “Ethical” and “big companies” all in one sentence! There’ll be just one big ethical company soon, and we’ll all be worthless and happy. Time for me to take a nap....
