    Wink New Bushcraft Courses.

    Hi all,
    After assisting on Natures Craft courses for a few years and a HND in woodland management and arboriculture things finally seem to be going my way. I have been approached by a woodland education centre to run weekend bushcraft courses for them. I will be freelance but covered by their insurance but will have to supply most of the kit, but for the mean time I have borrowed kit to get me going. I have submitted the course plan and now just waiting for conformation of the first date. I have no admin to do so I can turn up and teach with hopefully no hassle or worry as I am paid regardless of how many students come. There maybe be an opportunity next year for me to be full time in in the woodland with more management tasks in the woods, its 50 acres so should be plenty to keep me occupied. So fingers crossed I will have my first date in a few weeks but I have lots of work to do before then.
    Wish me luck, Stan

    Stan - I'll refer you to Rune's quote:

    "Victory awaits the one, that has everything in order - luck we call it
    Defeat is an absolute consequense for the one that have neglected to do the necessary preparations - bad luck we call it
    (Roald Amundsen)"

    Knock 'em dead!

    Thanks for all you replies, I will keep you all posted on my progress. If your on Facebook check out Grove FarmWoodland in Marlborough, this is were I will be running my courses. They are going to be aimed at absolute beginners with no experience at all in bushcraft or even camping, plus for kids with special requirements of their behaviour, that is going to be really challenging!
