Folks

Really enjoyed the weekend - thanks for the great company.

Not really wild food but i was having a chat with some of the guys about the nutritional values in the new MOD rat packs - here is a link to a breakdown of the contents and a spreadsheet i set up for making up your own packs from the supermarket

Cheers
Nick

Cheers everyone who attended and of course Stani, Adam, and Fraser for a brilliant weekend. Hope to catch up again one day.
Im off to make some fruit leathers later on and sort out that squirrel hide too.
Fraser was a wealth of information. I now know the ultimate test if a knife has a decent blade after skinning the Dogfish, man are they tough skinned.

I'll keep an eye out for a stave Nick.

The mental nurse who told me but SRM knives has just triggeered an order that may get me in a bit of trouble with the wife!

And I am now hunting for a potjie to give me the perfect rabbit dinner.

Hey It was a fantastic weekend
My thanks to Stani, Adam, and Fraser all of whom taught me more than they probably realise

The particiipants made for really great company and even more varied learning
I have never done a proper bushcraft course before and will admit to some unfounded trepidation
That was soon gone as time spent with like minded people is generally a pleasure

Oh yeah I was suprised that the kit monster atross had not learned of the cheap thrills that are SRM knives looks like he is on them already

If anyone else is interested
Its this thread on BB

Hi guys,

Really glad you all had a good weekend, and thanks again for your time and participation. I hope you all came away with a wealth of knowledge and some new found skills as well as getting a chance to sharpen up on the familiars.
Its always easier sharing knowledge or "teaching", when your faced with a good bunch of guys who genuinely have a thirst, or hunger in this case for the subject.

Many thanks and I hope to see you all again one day.

P.s Thanks for all the personal emails and kind words (it means allot).

pps. Cheers Woody, Ross, Adam and Stanni, see ya soon!

Excellent weekend - good to meet everyone. Many thanks to Stani, Adam & Fraser.
Especially usefull to pick up the very practical techniques for catching fish!

Did anyone write down the name of the book Adam had listing nutritional values of various edibles? Think it was an American author.

Hope to catch up with anyone in the future, cheers, Matt.

Ive gone a bit daft on River Cottage handbooks and dug out all the other id books at home as back up. Great fun trying out edible mushroom id again other than the usual tree decay fungi at work, and trying out wild food recipies.

Hi all.
Thanks for a wicked weekend. (I've only just got a reliable internet access, hence no post till now.) I learnt much, and enjoyed myself thoroughly. Hope to meet you all again around another fire, in another wood, sometime soon.
Look out squirrels everywhere!!!!
