I always get very excited when I hear there are landowners out there that appreciate the practice of bushcraft.
    Hi bud,

    We'll generally meet circa four times a year at Romford. Yes it's private land, around 100 acres I think. (That's not the size of the wood).

    If you can't make this one it'll be a couple months till the next.

    Look forward to meeting in due course chap.

    Thanks Paul.
    Pity that date is clashing.
    As in the name of the group, I take it that the "Breakfast" part is integral to the meet! What other delights does the wood bring? I'll need to sneak in a few bushcraft books as I am fairly rusty! Even getting out for a weekend in the hammock would be amazing. Looking forward to finding out more about the group.

    Sounds brilliant. Yes I have succeeded with the bow method many times at home but never out in the field....(where it matters!!)
    Must get practicing my knots, my memory is fading......along with my hair!

    Hi you are probably all aware but grogs knots offer very good animations of all sorts of knots on you tube. I find them very easy to follow. And there is even an app to download if you want to part with a small amount of wonga
