    Are we talking about proper Pot Noddle or the poorer quality supermarket own brand versions?

    The answer could be a deal breaker

    It's good to see that he's still at one with his surroundings.

    Yes, but is that just a necessary evil to line his pockets or is he genuinely interested in all of the participants?..to be perfectly truthful I've lost a lot of respect for Mears since glory and the golden god now seem more important to him than true bushcraft.

    The real deal. And you get a choice of either chicken curry or beef 'n' tomato flavours!

    ...bring your own fork.

    Steve, count me in,a walk round your back garden will do me mate .seriously though i do admire uncle Rays skills and knowledge but as martin said thats a load of dough. He does seem to have sold his soul to the golden eagle,when ever he is seen on tv now he always has brand new kit etc,bit of a shame really. paul

    Proper pot noodle wins it.

    As far as Uncle Ray goes, I can take him or leave him. He clearly knows his stuff and has made some very informative programmes, but he does seem to take himself a tad seriously. I'm not going to begrudge anyone making a living and if Ray can find folks willing to pay what he is asking, for a day in his company, then fair play to him.

    I would not pay what he is asking myself, but there are obviously enough people who will.

    I only charge $100AU for an overnight course! Not just a bloody walk either, i do primitive fire, shelter, and anything else anyone requests that we have time for! My kit is all either homemade or secondhand too :P Well, except for stuff like ferro rods, lighters, pen knives etc...

    How about meet up for a night in the woods and share a little knowledge for free, ohh and pot noodle is optional, however it must be served with something foraged.
