A Quick Brew in St Mawgan Woods (Carnanton)

E-mail Print PDF

BushcookerThis morning my younger brother Joe visited nice and early, insisting we go out "camping in the woods!" Unfortunately I had to explain that we had some work to do, but a quick visit would please all. Camping to young Joe (aged 10) doesn't necessarily have to be sleeping out, there's basically three things that Joe is after to call it "camping" that is; visiting the woods to first either setup a Tarp or Hammock, second make a camp-fire and third to have a brew in the woods!

Today we used the Bushcooker to brew-up, this wood gasification stove was kindly given to me by Jakob / JEEP on the forum, so thanks Jakob!

The Bushcooker seems to be a great little stove, very efficient with it's fuel, it's design is clever burning more of the gas released from the wood and consumes all the wood until your just left with a very small amount of ash. When your dealing with dry wood it's almost smoke-less and it's got the plus of the base staying cool so it doesn't scorch the earth. The only downside is perhaps it's pack size and the fact it needs pretty much constant feeding, but other than other than that I like it.

Today we ticked all the boxes and more in just a couple of hours, Joe also tried his hand as spear making and throwing and insisted to me he could kill a pheasant (Carnanton woods is inundated with them), even at his age he understands a good hunting-ethic to kill cleanly and only for the pot, so obviously he never went for the pheasants!

Claire came with us and did a bit of work from her hammock.

We had a spot of lunch in the woods and then left just as the weather was turning miserable.

From the post of "A Quick Brew in St Mawgan Woods (Carnanton)", I just wanna say this life style is really fantastic and leisure, it is enjoyable! the hammock of Quictent is really a good equipment for us to enjoy such a life time! Of course, if it is winter, maybe you need a camping tent and a camping wood stove from Astove for warm your tent-home, which will bring you a different experience of warmth.
