Blatant Bushcraft?

BOD

Bushcrafter (boy, I've got a lot to say!)
Most Excellent and Gracious Bushcraft Majesty,

My liege has challenged our nation of campsite, armchair and cyber bush crafters to rise out of our sofas and meet the challenge of Blatant Bushcraft, not to skulk anymore indoors, in backyards or at the campground as meek and lesser men (and women) but to rise, be seen and take up Moras against the conditioning that keeps us in chains and now to practice bushcraft openly anywhere as free men and women!

Your vassals, Bandel4 and BOD, have obeyed our lieges command and raised the standard at the gates of the citadel of capitalism consumerism and deforestation– the tallest twin pillars in the world.

Bushcraft – Covert no more! Long Live Bushcraft. Long Live our King!

Superb. I can't wait to see what the attempt is to challenge that. I thought i might have a go just for a laugh (will never beat that) but i have to wait until a friend is free to help me out with a few photos. Well done on overthrowing the king :p

A little dark child-like part of me was sort of hoping you were going to hammock up Between the two towers......sigh, that would have been ..magic.

That would have been trouble. Spiderman did it but security is quite tight - CCTV, security guards and rapid response SWAT team.

It went high alert on 9/11 and while all is peaceful now there are eyes everywhere. I kept on doing recces and must be on camera which is why I wore the bush hat on the actual attempt.

We figured Friday lunch time. Short handed cos the Muslims are at the mosque for congregational prayer and the already thin cover would be switching for lunch and bored. (oops, giving away secrets here)

Now , not wishing to act all Machiavellian to fuel my own viewing pleasure but It does occur to me that brilliant display is going to take some serious escalation of Overt nature to out do it...

I wonder if Rapps has anything left in the bag..
Its all going to end in tears.:)

Please do not abdicate Sire

Your vassal is humbled but Uneasy is the head that wears a crown.

You remain King. We are just knights around your table going off on quests!



So I hope you will keep on stirring us to go out and do it.
oh, alright then ;)

My plan, did not come off. It involved a friend doing me a favour but could be ruinous to his job- which is more important really.

So I remain a mere serf when I COULD HAVE RULED ALL!!

Sorry.

I'm sure once the weather decides to improve we'll all have a go.
It is a cracking idea.
But Winter has been long and miserable.

Ah yes, top marks but you see, the tarp makes the whole thing very much more blatant!
Since I lost some of my photo's I'll have to re-do them! (might be busier this time! ;) )
