    A bad day on the hills is better than a good day in work any time.

    Almost there with the permissions for Sherwood myself...just one gamekeeper to impress and we are on
    It is dangerous to hold the wolf by the ears

    It is better to die as a wolf than living like a dog.

    I will have to try it another time as Ken pointed out to me it is on at the same time as the Wilderness Gathering and I'm hoping to get there to meet up with him and anyone else who goes.

    Hi there everyone.

    I'm the ranger at Sherwood Pines who runs the Sherwood Bushcraft programme. Aze - I'm glad you and your son had a good time.

    Just so you all know I have just planned the next lot of family events and they should be appearing on the website soon at http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/f...ue/INFD-7T6GDQ - we have a few more day long events and one overnight for families. If these fill up I will look to running some more.

    I'm also hoping to run an adult only overnight event as a skills sharing session - is this the sort of thing anyone would be interested in? If so let me know and I'll add you to the mailing list. You can email me directly at karina.thornton@forestry.gov.uk

    You can also book bushcraft sessions for a private group - for more details have a look here http://www.forestry.gov.uk/sherwood-bushcraft

    Hope to see some of you in the future,

    Regards,
    Karina
