SUFFOLK BUSHCRAFT GROUP 2 NIGHT MEET: 1 – 3 NOVEMBER 2019
THEME – WINTER PREPARATION
Winter can be a challenging time when heading into the woods, skills are put to the test but can be a most rewarding time.
For this weekend, we will look at preparation for the challenges the weather creates in terms of shelter, fire lighting, equipment etc. As a group we can prepare the location, share skills, knowledge and equipment ideas.
