A fine evening in the woods spent with friends chilling around the campfire, having a brew, taking in the sights and sounds.

Phil brought his tree climbing gear and taught Frankie and I a thing or two about climbing, I thought I'd give it a try!

E-mail Print PDF

ramsonsOur friend Pete aka 'The Joker' on the forum has set himself a very courageous challenge of living off the land for one whole month! He is doing this to raise money for an great cause, all the money that he raises will be going to the Shooting Star Chase Childrens Hospice.

the-shooting-star-hospice-logoPete named his challenge "One Woodland, One Fat Bloke, One Month" as he is intending to loose a few pounds whilst he's living wild and at the same time raise many pounds for charity.

Let's hope he knows his daisys from his dandelions & survives the month! We wish him all the best and hopes he raises lots of money toward this good cause. We will keep you posted on his progress.

If you would like to support his cause then please donate on his webpage here.

You can read the forum discussion about this challenge here.

 

Passing It on - Knife Skills

E-mail Print PDF

Phil with CoracleWritten by Phil Keelan

As a child growing up I remember the wonder and magic of camping and campcraft. I went to Cubs and Scouts and was always eager to learn more about living wild. I used to watch Les hiddins while tucked up in bed, long after my mum commanded lights out. As a teenager my friends and I spent most weekends camping down the marsh or cycling up to the Forest of Bowland to spend a few days away from it all.

More oxygen pleaseNow, as a father of two energetic kids and still having a keen interest in outdoor living, it seems fitting not only to take my kids out with me camping but also to pass on the skills and knowledge I've accumulated over the years.
