Bad news for the Dark Horses I'm afraid. Our child care arrangements have fallen through. However Mrs DHD has graciously said that I should still go while she stays home & looks after the kids.

Very sorry about this, and really hope it doesn't muck anybody about. On the assumption that all is OK I'll settle up shortly direct with Bushcraft Expeditions.

Cheers

Sorry to hear about that mate, I bet she's gutted, I seem to recall she was after a place first :D Let her know there will be a next time.

Good stuff, all the emails went out last week so we're waiting for the rest to secure places.

I'll be passing through your way about 13:30 if you can get to Michealwood services on the M5 ?

EDIT:

Just noticed the RV time is different on Woody's post above

Make that around 15:30 James

Just booked, looking forward to it. I just wondered if anyone was travelling by car from London for this course and could give me a lift. I can pay money towards petrol?

If not I will drive down by motorbike but makes the packing a bit more challenging :eek:

Another big thank you to Woody, Stani and Ross for a great week in the woods. Learnt far more than I thought I would and I've now got new skills to take forward and practice.

Great location, very knowledgeable and friendly staff with a good mix of students.

Now to work on the wife for the Canada exped :)


General direction, eliminate the openings .....

Hello everyone, I did the Tracking course arranged by our very own Tony Bristow of BCUK this month, which was run by the company Bushcraft Expeditions, and just wanted to say a few words. Firstly thanks to Woody, Stani, Ross and Adam for a great course. If anyone is thinking of doing a course with these guys they are both very clued up and also helpful & patient. Unfortunately although Tony did his best to fill the minimum of 12 places needed to run this course I understand he was let down late on by members and in the end only seven of us turned up. I don’t know if Bushcraft Expeditions ran the course at a loss but they were good enough not to penalise the rest of us by cancelling the course at the last minute. Obviously it did not show BCUK in too good a light and I just hope it doesn’t make Tony’s job more difficult in future. After all, companies will be reluctant to do us a deal if this sort of thing happens again. Anyway I know I’m speaking for all of us on the course in saying a big thank you to Tony for doing a great job in negotiating a good deal for the course at a reduced price.
