    Sierra Nevada

    I'm back (on the forum) after a while away. I returned from the mountains end of last month. No real bushcraftimg was done tbh. Although we did set up camp on tha bank of the Yuba River (where I found a nice nugget of gold) and used my slip joint TBS boar to make some feather sticks, and then...

    Sierra Nevada

    It's Beggars belief. When I loved in London I'd be walking behind school children who'd throw their chip box onto the street, with a bin not 10 feet away from them. I'd have slapped them round the face but I'd just have been arrested for assault :/ And I'm one of these people who doesn't do...

    Sierra Nevada

    That's such a shame :( I'll never understand such behaviour. The UK is terrible for it. Where I live, during ww2 the local hills had a large bunker network used to mimic a city breaching blackout, to get the luftwaffe to bomb them rather than the nearby city. All the bunkers are fenced off and...

    My Impact is limited to 12 ftlb :( tis a crying shame! Will certainly be fun to try out some 45ACP revolvers.

    Sierra Nevada

    Thanks for the thoughts everyone. I wouldn't use it unless I felt I was proficient. It's been a while since I used "real" guns, always had a play with a 22LR a month or so back. As per my post, it'll be in May, as I won't get the time off over summer, and I wouldn't be able to handle the...

    Sierra Nevada

    First off, granted, I've got a couple of more knowledgeable resources, in that they're locals, but perhaps they don't have bushcraft specific knowledge. Just looking to tap all resources. Anyone ever visited the aforementioned mountains and know anything about the ability to wild camp and all...

    Bivvy recommendation

    Well I ended up with one from mountain warehouse. All reviews state condensation is a problem... I didn't buy it though. Never mentioned a bivvy to anyone but here but that's what my brother went and bought me for Christmas. Am I too predictable :D Will keep it as a very lightweight backup...

    Bivvy recommendation

    Thanks for the replies guys. It is indeed a bivvy bag I'm after. I've a tiny tent, but looking for something more discrete and portable. As unsavory a position as it might be, I'm done with the whole legal approach, and intend to just hike and kip where I can. I understand the purpose of getting...

    Bivvy recommendation

    Hello all. It's been a while! Despite the criticisms, I survived my outing last year without a problem :) so now I'm thinking of different persuits. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a bivvy. Be it army surplus or whatnot. Beyond needing to fit a sleeping bag and bog...

    Photobucket fix

    This is not for people who use photobucket, but rather for anyone who wants to say read a thread on a canoe adventure, but all they see for pictures are the photobucket error message. Now you can see any photobucket image from posters who's photo's have been blocked from hotlinking. Not sure...

    Anyone using a TV as a Monitor?

    I've used a tv for a monitor for over a decade now without issue. Until now. My 42" died, so went with a 40" bravia, and i don't know if it is the 2" difference, or windows 10, but I've recently been encountering a lot of eye strain and problems focusing (sat just under 2m away) and have had to...

    Photobucket fix

    Not sure if this has been done already, but I'll post just in case. I know a lot of people were upset about their logs and such being neutered, not any more. For chrome users: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-embed-fix/naolkcpnnlofnnghnmfegnfnflicjjgj?hl=en For firefox...

    Leg wear questions from a new comer

    I recently bought a pair of Fjallraven trousers and took them to the lake district. Fantastic things. Are they worth the money compared to other products? wouldn't have a clue :)

    Barely legal EDC?

    I do not use mine all that much, but when I do need one, it's great to know I have it. Like a smart phone.

    Photobucket impact and alternatives

    There are thousands of options out there for free, and offer a far better service, imugr, Tumblr, instagram, you name it. I'm also on a forum who offer unlimited storage and hotlinking for a fiver a year. That's what makes PBs new direction so perplexing. Maybe it's just a last ditch cash grab...

    Barely legal EDC?

    I carry a dan2 (purple is the best colour :p) around London with me most days (that or a TBS boar). It certainly comes across like a full size locking knife, why I bought it, it is a great knife with a fantastic functional blade. It is completely legal though, so I couldn't care what the public...

    Barely legal EDC?

    To be fair, it is. But that's not necessarily how the public may see it, or any blade. I bought a sushi platter and pulled out my green LTC to cut a piece in half to share. My partner started panicking thinking people would phone the police simply because it was a knife, let alone a scary...

    Barely legal EDC?

    Does it have a folding blade? Yes. Is it a locking blade? Nope. Government definition of a locking knife. "have blades that can be locked and refolded only by pressing a button" It is a folding knife without a lock with a sub 3" blade. So based on the governments own advice, you don't even...
