    Thanks very much, Snowleopard and OakAshandThorn. Your words are greatly appreciated.

    Don't assume I don't read. I have plenty of books on the subject. ; )

    Anyway, Fishy, don't you see my point that his approach to commenting on Mears and Grylls was a bit... brash? I don't care if...

    I'm offended by his pompousness, FishyFolk.

    Ray Mears simply said, "as far as I'm concerned these people are just showmen", or something to that effect.
    Grylls said a few polite words about Mears...

    How important is Nature in your life?

    This is a rather personal post that I've been wanting to write for a long time. Now I finally have the energy to do so.

    For me, Bushcraft isn't just 'camping out and having fun in the wilderness.'...

    I've just been reading about the Rowan in all its detail (interesting folklore). I could've eaten the scarlet berries, right? Darn! I wish I'd have known back then.

    Ah, well that settles it. Two people, yourself and Sapper, have named it Rowan. And what do you know, I was in Scotland. What are the chances?

    Cheers!

    No Rowan? Or are you saying that what Sapper said as Rowan is actually Larch, because Larch has similar red seeds.

    How embarrassing... I should've looked closer. Once I zoomed in I could see that they were, in fact, leaves instead of needles.

    Yes, but weren't most of those things bio-degradable?

    Would you rather see leftover tools and crafts, food and cloth from out ancient ancestors, or aluminium cans full of modern toxic waste?
