Sounds good to me. I don't care how much or how often people get out, how dedicated people are, whether they sleep out under a tarp every night or go to a camp ground once a year. I just enjoy the exchange of knowledge from a variety of people, many of whom don't even agree with me on some subjects. All the different skills, interests and knowledge are what makes this an interesting place to be.I totally disagree.
One of the things that makes this forum so successful is the huge range of interests,skills,knowledge and experience of the participants.
There are almost as many "kinds of bushcrafter" as there are members here.
From the young bucks who can sleep on a length of paracord strung between two trees to the older,possibly infirm person who manages to get out for an hour every now and again.
The thing that unites the various disparate types is the love of getting out and being part of the countryside.
Some of like to have the latest gear;some like to use as little as possible;some can afford hundreds of knives;some struggle to afford a Mora.
No one is a "better bushcrafter" than the next person just because their way of enjoying themselves is different.
Living with nature and doing no damage is the thing that we are all aiming for,I hope.
I have already got it on back order with play.com (the cheapest I have found so far)At a shooting club I was once told by a chap that I didn't attend regularly enough to be a "proper shooter". Didn't stop me winning top prize at the competition though!
You have to take your bushcraft where you can find it, in the woods, the back yard, the shed or even the spare room. You're really only limited by your own mind!
Now, to get back on topic, I can't wait to order the DVD's so I can go through the series properly and really sift out the gems in there!
if you watch the btm series and their evolution its rm 10-20 years early. no wonder they got on rm nicked lh's playbookI'm trying to remember if Bush Tucker Man had similar visuals and music as beng it was just that episode I thought it might have been a nod in that direction.
I totally agree, but the scale of the land (continent!) makes anything else (other than flying) impractical in terms of TV production in this format I guess...Not really bushcraft driving around in a land rover all the time, but it was interesting non the less.
