Still thinking about doing this, can't decide how I should do it. I'm thinking:

-BRK Imp
-Emergency blanket
-Magnifying glass
-Loaf of bread
-Eggs

I'd like to build and maintain a firebundle through the day and evening, hiking through to a sheltered spot, and use it to set a fire with a frying stone to cook my eggs once the sun has gone done. Maybe a bit risky, if the fire fails I'm stuffed, never tried a bowdrill so I wouldn't have any real alternative ways of getting a fire going. Blanket as a bivi on a fallen leaf bed, or on the off chance theres a storm rigged as a tarp.

Fires are illegal here tho' so I'm trying to think up interesting alternative ideas. I'll usually build a fire but it's really dry in August which makes me paranoid about starting a forest fire..

as you cant have a fire i will allow you to take a fire pit or BBQ type thing to have a fire in, this would be a free item, the way you light it and your fuel should come from the woods or will count as items....

hope this helps.

I'm guessing they're illegal too. This time of year the fire risk in forests in southern Europe is frightening and you'd be insane to start any kind of a fire.
Yep exactly. It's been relatively wet this year from what I've gathered, we had lots of storms in July but August has just dried everything out.

I have the next few days off so I think I'll head out tomorrow or tuesday, dependant on an interesting idea, perhaps theming it as a real life scenario. Otherwise I'm planning a longer hike at the end of August.

I'm gutted I'm not going to get chance to be out overnight before the end of the month, will still give it a bash next time I can, after locating a suitable area - all the woods close by are on hills, and I don't fancy rolling down them in the middle of the night by accident!
