a number of people have suggested we have a poll on which expedition you would choose if you won the Bushcraft expeditions competition.

So if you won a free expedition, where would you choose to go?

the steaming jungles of borneo with the Iban, the bammboo forests of thailand with the Hilltribes, the arctic tundra of sweden with the Sammi or the arid bush of namibia with the San Bushmen?

to help you in your choice, information can be found at www.Bushcraftexpeditions.com

Where's the option for the Land of the midnight sun swedish canoeing expedition? Or is that not included as a competition prize?

Unfortunately I have a big problem, I couldn't decide between them, I have been to most of the enviroments and don't really have a preference as to which.

All of them have an appeal in thier own way, with me it would have to be a blindfolded decision. In other words I would be happy to go on any of them.

In the end cost would be one of the major factors, so it would probably depend on how flush I was at the time:)

At a scout jamboree a scout from Namibia was asked what action one would take if one fell in a river. He replied that he would stand up and dust himself off and walk away.

Dry place Namibia. Deserts are exciting places and the people of them are true survivers I think.

Sweden for me

Wish I could explain why though :confused:

The whole world to choose from and I go for the closest
Maybe it's because I'd miss my mummy :eek:

I find it hard to decide, I put Thailand in the end but to be honest I’d be up for any of them…..If I had to pay it would probably be the artic one….But hey, you don’t have to pay! :D

Here and there
Borneo, without a doubt! I'd love to see some Orangutangs in their normal habitat...

As a swede I wouldn't go on the artic expedition in the winter even if they paid me... No sunlight at all, bloody cold and tons of snow :eek: Lived up there for four years, plenty enough for me! In the summer however it is the oppposite, just bring a rucksack full of mosquito protection. They get HUGE up north! :D And not a orangutang in sight either, just millions of reindeer LOL

For me it would have to be the Sweden expedition . I dont like the heat here let alone some where hotter ! Also i feel that i would learn more things that i could use when i got back home , but i might be wrong about that .

That's a good point Pumbaa, it would be interesting to know how much of the skills from the there and the other expeditions are transferable to the UK. I expect that a lot of them are, especially the tracking type ones...
