    Wanted, Empty shot gun cases please

    Dusty sir, Thanks for the offer. 1000 cases equals 1000 fires equals 1000 cups of tea equals heaven.... but.... it was for a lockdown project LOL. I have a few offers in the pipeline so I think I will be fine. On a separate note it seems the ability to get to the post office is the stumbling...

    Moot 2020 Is it or is it not

    Please don't shoot the messenger........ I was hoping it would not be me but some one has to ask the question.. IS it happening. I understand very much that things are all over the place so my real question is... Do I buy tickets and where do we stand regarding refunds. I am so very very sorry...

    Wanted, Empty shot gun cases please

    I was thinking about 2 doz. Seems silly to just sort out 2 or 3 ! edit.. When I say sort I was thinking putting together 1 or 2 fire starters, might as well make 24 waxed pads , 25 birch bark bundles and the like.

    Wanted, Empty shot gun cases please

    Would anyone have any used shotgun cartridges / cases that I could have. Fancy making a load of sealed fire starter kits while I am stuck in the house. It goes without saying I will pay post and packing

    DIY (primitive) drybags?!

    Remember chatting with Theresa, (of iron age fame), while she was working on water bladders. It seems there were a number of ways of making things water resistant but only the bladder makes water proof !!!

    Hammock Tips

    In short it seems you have all the kit. I slept in a DD for years and my daughter still does. By the next meet I take it you mean Summer moot. I think you will find that you will have many folk more then willing to help with your set up. ( I, for one, will be glad to.) Keep this thread live...

    Ban on sale of coal and wet wood.

    If a ban on wet wood will stop the Bushmoot estate selling us that pile of sponges that they did, it gets my vote.

    Winter Moot 2020 - 17 - 23rd Feb

    Go to the main bushmoot site ( where you bought tickets from ) on the main page there is a link to Information and on that page there is an aerial map. It shows a track / unmetaled road leading into the site and a big car park at the end. There is a small area nearby with little tree cover...

    What is Tinder & What is Kindling?

    You have to be kind to kindling but you have to embrace an ember.

    Baton Tool

    If that fine fellow Mr. Budd can get some poor child to be his pump monkey at the moot, surly he could knock up a few of those Swedish things and we can have a gang of 5 year olds knocking out kindling. Save having the little souls running around and having fun, getting fresh air and all that...

    Looking for Handy Hammock Stand / DD Hammock Stand

    I was going to use the funds from the Handy to get some new gear, as I have found a cheaper supply can offer the Handy Hammock stand for £60 postage paid now.
