I'm sure one of the mods will come along and move it soon.... as long as someone let a mod know.

Moved :D

It'll be interesting to see if they sell before we get in a stooshy over it.
Heavy on the postage ££ though, I've posted lots of fungi to friends and the heaviest packages were only about a £.

cheers,

From my experience people nearly always tend to overcharge P&P on Ebay a bit..

Its mental what there selling! I've no qualms about it, but for me I think true bushcrafters will gather there own. And only when they really need it. I know where the birch trees are in my area so if I need some I can just go get it.

Trade is as old as mankind..... My other half is into flint knapping, but down here in south wales we have none... so she has to trade to get her supplies .... there is only so much knapping of beer bottle bottoms you can do before you want to play with the real thing (especially 'MY' beer bottles I use for the beers I make)

I must admit, I feel really sorry fo people living in big cities that dont have access to the resources that we have out in the sticks and the wilds.

Good point. And I was thinking after I made that comment that people in urban areas would have trouble finding the tinder or bark. For me the whole enjoyment however is searching for it!

I can imagine this being a reasonable substitute for a mentor. If one can't readily identify the items from text or pictures, one would at least have an idea of what to look for by buying these "samples" of the real thing. -- Bear
