Tips For Bushcraft/Survival Gear

Tips For Bushcraft/Survival Gear

Keep your survival gear simple and of very good quality. Take the time to buy the more expensive gear (if that is what is needed) and amass what you need slowly. Better to have a small amount of gear and know how to use it really well; than bags of gear and lacking in proper survival and bushcraft skills/practice/training.

Get outdoors as much as possible and train.

Have the tools to fix your gear also kept in your gear bag, for example a screwdriver for the handle of your cooking pan...

Keep things simple. One of the biggest skills I have seen is the ability to improvise - make do with what you have, not what you would like to have.

Amazing dawn kayak trip this morning! Huge white full moon lighting the way. Impressive red stag watching us; superb blazing sunrise over the hills and a double rainbow over the oak woods. Then back for Gubbeen rashers! Not enough photos to do the trip justice unfortunately.
