I do not think there is a post in the forum- mods please move if there is.

So who went? What did you think? what did you buy?

I thought it was great, I bought an axe loop and to much jerky!

I don't think there's one either :dunno: No idea why not though, from all that I have heard about it the Wilderness Gathering is well worth going to :D

Did you take any photos ? what did you see ? did you do any of the classes ? and who was demonstrating ?

cheers,
Toddy

I did see the bow drill class as wanted to see where I was going wrong- The instructor made it so easy and I had some pointers.

What I did see was (which is important) some very clean toilets and showers- well done Scouts!

I know Dave Budd was there and Endicotts etc

I dropped in on the Sunday, great fun :)

Loads of stalls and demos, caught up with some mates, came away with another Ben Orford spoon knife, GB hand hatchet, some leather and some flint knapping gear and stuff, none of which I intended !!!

Could have been worse though, was very, very tempted with Tim's puukko knives at Greenmanknives.com, fantastic quality and workmanship and you couldn't find a nicer more helpful guy to talk about sharpening, sheath making, knives etc. I managed to resist on this occasion, but once you have seen his work up close and handled them, I think it's just a matter of time before one finds it's way over here :)

I really should get better organised and stay over next time, looks like a lot of fun is had in the evenings too when the day visitors have gone !

No pics though sadly, I was too busy taking everything in :)

Cheers, Paul

I went and it was all fine and dandy. A fair bit of decent kit hidden amongst the tat too. Didn't get to see the demonstrations as I was working on the kid's den building but overall I found it to be an enjoyable weekend. Next year I will face the dilemma of doing a full Bushmoot or leaving the moot early to do both events...

Had a ball at TWG 15 along with my 8 yr old son Jed, lots to see and do along with the usual wallet emptying temptations.

We spent the evenings in Dave Budd's man crèche so thanks all the good folk who frequented this year......

Had a great time as ever....I seem to have moved on from spending (though not entirely !) to enjoying catching up with people from here and elsewhere and admiring the crafting skills. Always good to come away with a project list....

Was my first full weekend, normally just a day visitor) and first time helping on a stand (Wilderness Survival Skills).

Was great to see everyone that came past.

It was also my 6yr olds first full weekend (at the WG that is) and would like thank everyone that helped contribute to her having a very enjoyable weekend.

Need to start a thread for the 2016 gathering. Going to be a bit of a change for me, this year I won't have the kids..
Will miss having the kids there, but have never drank much of the cider or stayed up for the bands.
