    Alone in the wilderness

    Hi guys! I've seen or read something about a DVD called 'alone in the wilderness'. Apparently it's about a guy who goes out into the wilderness and builds a home and a life out in the wilderness. I've looked on for this but no joy! I've found it on and but neither...

    What to do?

    I agree totally, i wouldn't feel safe sleeping anywhere near those guys. Total idiots!!! It's people like that that make it unsafe (and undesirable) for the rest of us to go into the woods!!!! Where abouts do you live? You could maybe go to one of your local BCUK meets and meet some people...

    Where is your favourite place to camp?

    Hi everyone. Just wondering where everyones favourite place to camp is, and why? Having only camped twice so far i would have to say that mine is a pine forest in Ayre. We were so far from anywhere and the place was very peaceful. We had a huge campfire in a designated stoned off area and...

    Middlewood Scout Camp Meet

    Thanks for the advice. We've got a tarp, sleeping bags, bivvy bags and roll mats. Do you think this will be enough? I could probably borrow a tent off my mum if not?? Just to add to the list of numbers, my husband Paul (dibble on the forum) will also be coming (work permitting). Looking forward...

    Middlewood Scout Camp Meet

    Great to hear there's a meet so close to where i live! Would love to come, but as i only got into bushcraft about 3 months ago i'm a bit unsure what i will need for a winter camp? Could anyone give me some tips??? Also, will this meet be more for experienced bushcrafters or will it be accessable...

    Favourite Books

    What a great thread! I have shelves and shelves of books but it looks like i'm going to have to buy a few more. I'm afraid that i too have a Bear Grylls book (again, bought for me as a pressie). Favourite bushcraft books: All of the Tom Brown books (but especially 'the tracker'). Ray...

    Favourite movie

    Has anyone seen 'The Hunted' with Benico del Toro. It's a great action movie and is supposed to be roughly based on Tom Brown's experiences with the armed forces. The extras have a great bit with Tom Brown showing everyone some tracking skills. Not to be missed. Other favourite films...
