Moving Blog To New Website

After using this blog platform for the past seventeen years; ever since I set up my business (back in 2006!); I am reluctantly moving my blog across to my new website; so everything will be all together.

This Is The New Website + This Is The New Blog

As one of my favorite radio presenters used to say 'if you have been - thank you for listening'

Thanks! Nathan

Bushcraft Skills - Basecamp

Bushcraft Skills - Basecamp:

When you hit the wilderness and decide to stop to build a shelter, make camp, look for water, etc - the very first thing you want to do is get a decent basecamp.

This is where you can put your belongings and gear somewhere clean, safe, protected from elements and protected from animals.

Everything is together and organised. Up off the ground is good - a tree makes a great cupboard!

If rain or snow is likely however then under an uprooted tree stump or under an overhanging rock is good.

If you are going wandering have your gear prominent. Not being able to find stuff again can be more common than you would think!

Bushcraft Skills - Debris Shelter

Bushcraft Skills - Debris Shelter:

Made from whatever 'debris' is available to you. (All dead and on the ground - apart from bracken/rhododendron you should not be taking anything living generally).

You will see a long ridge-pole, an a-frame doorway, ribbing along each side, then the entire frame is covered with debris, such as leaf-mould. The covering should be compacted and should ideally be arm depth in thickness.
