Bushcraft Skills overnighter course

Had a great weekend just gone, teaching a group of seven adults all about the basics of bushcraft, with a chance to sleep out in the woods and enjoy the experience for longer. We were busy long into the evening and many a dutch oven was filled and emptied over the 24 hours.
Its worth all the preparation, teaching, and setting up when there is so much positivity within a group and folks start to take in the new skills as well as relaxing and chatting around the fire in an evening when the work is done.

Its very rewarding work.

Anyway, a few pics as per usual...

Large group area for cooking and teaching.

First time with Tarpage and some new knots learnt.

Evening meal all cooked as a group. Pizza, chilli, curry, flat breads and rice.

Relaxing with a brew and chatting long into the night.

Cooked breakfast on the way

Black Pines. I still like to climb when I get chance, and these are great. They're very tall and you can usually sit on the very top of the canopy due to the table top like upper surface.
